Can This Ultra-Cheap f/1.4 Lens Take Worthwhile Images?

Photo Logo Kit

TTArtisan makes some very affordable lenses, and at $118, the 17mm f/1.4 is no different. Offering a wide focal length paired with a maximum aperture and available for a wide variety of APS-C mounts, it looks like a potentially useful budget option for a wide range of shooters. If you are interested in such a lens, check out this great video review that takes a look at the 17mm f/1.4 and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this excellent video review takes a look at the TTArtisan 17mm f/1.4 lens for Fujifilm X, Canon EF-M, Micro Four Thirds, Leica L, and Nikon Z APS-C mount cameras. At $118, this lens is especially affordable, and as such, you should not expect top-of-the-line image quality from it, but that being said, as you will see, it can create quite decent and attractive images in a lot of scenarios. Perhaps the biggest drawback is that it lacks autofocus, but with the manual focus assistance options on most modern mirrorless cameras, that is not as big of a deal anymore as long as you are not photographing fast action. Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts on the lens.
