TTArtisan releases AF 56mm F1.8 lens for Fujifilm and Sony APS-C cameras

Image: TTArtisan Today, TTArtisan has officially released its AF 56mm F1.8 autofocus lens for X and E-mount cameras. The APS-C portrait lens is another budget offering from the China-based company. The company's website also includes specs for a Nikon Z-mount version but lists it as "Sold Out."Recent Videos The 56mm F1.8 lens has ten elements in nine groups and has nine aperture blades. The lens is built with a stepper motor, which TTArtisan claims delivers fast and quiet autofocus. It has a minimum focusing distance of 0.5m (19.6") and a minimum aperture of F16. TTArtisan says the lens has a full aluminum build, weighs between 233-245g (8.2-8.8oz), and includes one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) element. This should help reduce the amount of color fringing that may occur in an image. This makes it a very different optical formula from the Viltrox AF 56mm F1.7 for Fujifilm X mount and Nikon Z mount announced last week. Like the Viltrox, the TTArtisan lens has no aperture ring. This is only the company's fourth autofocus lens, but it's the second one it has announced in recent weeks, following the TTArtisans AF 35mm F1.8 released early this month for Sony E-mount cameras. Pricing and availability The TTArtisan AF 56mm F1.8 ships globally and is available immediately. It has a suggested retail price of $158. Buy now: $168 at Amazon $158 at TTArtisan
