TTartisan has recently announced its newest lens – and APS-C mirrorless users aren't going to be disappointed. The latest offering from the lens manufacturer is a super affordable 35mm f/1.4 lens for APS-C mirrorless systems including Canon EOS M, Fujifilm X, Micro Four Thirds and Sony E mount.
Retailing for just $73 on Amazon US, the TTartisan 35mm f/1.4 is constructed of seven elements in six groups and uses a ten-blade aperture diaphragm. The aperture range on this 35mm f/1.4 lens goes from the super wide maximum aperture of f/1.4 to f/16. This wide maximum aperture means that users can capture attractive bokeh and work in low light situations.

The only downside to this lens is that it is fully manual, which means that users won't be able to use autofocus when shooting photos with it. However, most mirrorless cameras have the ability to use focus peaking (opens in new tab) now, which is where the camera highlights which parts of your view are in focus with colored lines.
The TTartisan 35mm f/1.4 will have a minimum focusing distance of 28cm, measured from the sensor to the subject. The front filter thread is 39mm and the lens weighs a fantastically lightweight 180g, making it the perfect candidate to be shoved into your kitbag without a second thought for the perfect shooting opportunity.
With a retro, compact and portable design, the TTartisan 35mm f/1.4 could be a great option for any photographer looking to add some super fast glass to their collection without having to dig deep into their wallet. With a $73 price tag, there's not much more you could ask for!
