TTArtisan has introduced an 11 mm F2. fisheye lens 8 for the growing Fujifilm GFX camera range. Including Fujifilm GFX100, GFX 50s, GFX 50R and GFX 100s.
The new fisheye lens testifies to the growing popularity of these medium format photo and video cameras. This will be especially interesting for video marksman if you use the GFX 100 and 100. Both offer a 4K DCI with 4096 x 2160 pixels and a 2K DCI with 2048 x 2160 pixels. You can also output a 12-bit RAW to a Ninja V recorder or similar via a clean HDMI.
The fisheye will give users character or effect with the distortion of this large sensor canvas-a huge 43.8 × 32.9 mm and 103 MP ON gfx100 models. Use it wide open to F2. 8 to create amazing fixed and filmy effects-perhaps even as a fisheye portrait lens or as a specialized aerial lens. The manual lens closes to F16 at the other end.
TTArtisan 11mm Fish Eye
The optical design consists of 11 elements divided into seven groups, which, according to TTArtisan, helped to improve the soft edge of the fisheye lens. The company designs a similar fisheye lens for Sony E, Nikon Z, Canon RF and Leica L and m mounts.the price is available on the e-commerce site ttartisan.
For a medium-format lens, this price is quite remarkable, but on closer inspection, you can find a small note on the Ttartisan website: “The 11mm f2.8 fisheye lens is designed for full-frame. So there will be a small dark corner when mounted on FUJIFILM cameras.”
This is probably the reason for the rather low price: it is more a resettlement and not a completely new medium format destination. You get a unique lens for your FUJIFILM GFX 100, GFX 50s, GFX 50R or GFX 100s cameras.
