    Thanks for this review, Alwin. I remember seeing this lens on the web some time back, and thought the external design showing the optical formula was kind of neat. This company has come out with more focal lengths with same exterior.

    I thought of getting this lens to play with, but then my fear was that it might be on my camera when a once in a lifetime shot presents itself. The Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 is on my cameras probably 80% of the time, and it is used at f/1.4 more than half the time… simply for the rendering, it is terrific!

    For a “most used lens”, beg, borrow or steal and get the best one. Reserve the “fun” lenses for those focal lengths that you only play with once in a while.

    Again, thanks for the images. This could be a lens that weens someone off of zooms, introducing them to the fun of selective focus.

      Hi Albert,

      Thank you for your comment. I will still use the XF 35mm F1.4 for most occasions, this manual lens will be there for me when I need my brain exercise.

    The title is a bit confusing given your decision to keep it.

    Great review Alwin. I use a Fuji X-T20 and recently received a Pergear 25/1.8 as a Christmas gift. This is my first Chinese made MF lens and I’m very impressed. Other than the XF 18-55 lens that came with my camera, the only other lenses that I use are all legacy MF primes, mostly Konica AR and Canon FD. Optically, they are great but coupled with an adapter they end up being quite large and heavy (especially my excellent Hexanon AR 35/2.0 lens). My new Pergear lens is delightfully small and light and I am seriously thinking of buying a new Chinese 35mm lens for the same reason. Your review of the TTArtisan lens has helped a lot.

      Buongiorno

      Volevo sapere il sito dove acquistarlo e poi se possibile inserire un marchio personalizzato.

    Hi I receive TTARTISAN 35mm 1.4 and 50mm 1.2 for my Fujifilm. I can take photos all is ok but impossible to use the focus peaking Normal or something to do in the menu? Thanks

    Hi. How’s the T-stop (exposure) though? Can you measure it?
    Fujifilm claims 35 1.4 is a true T1.4 so you can use it as reference directly, whether the ttartisans is a true T1.4 or not.
    Thanks in advance

    I have the XF35/2 and I like what it does, but I decided to try one of these and it arrives Friday. I use a LOT of manual lenses on both the Pro 2 and 50r, so I’m no stranger to manual focusing. DSLR’s typically have no cross screen for manual focusing, but the focus peaking is pretty good.

    I have yet to play with the XF35/1.4 but I might have to find one. I shoot weddings and portraits for a living and I find little time for messing around with adapters on the job, but I DO get the chance. Unfortunately many of the lenses wider than 50mm aren’t very good, so I am hoping this will be.
