Who says that fast lenses need to cost a small fortune? Budget brand 7artisans is again providing proof that fast glass can be affordable with the release of the 7artisans 24mm f/1.4 APS-C.
The wide-angle lens's maximum f/1.4 aperture is the big appeal of this lens - making it a great choice for lowlight shooting, or for when you need to defocus the background (such as when shooting environmental portraits).
The metal-cased lens weighs 344g and is constructed from seven elements arranged in six groups, including two ED elements. There are nine aperture blades, and has a 49mm front filter thread. The minimum focus is 30cm.
The aperture range is clickless - making the prime more suitable to video use, when the iris opening needs to be adjusted whilst recording.
The 7artisans 24mm f1.4 APS-C lens is available to order today, with shipping commencing next month in all six mount options - each with a retail price of $109 / £129 / AU$169.
