7Artisans 25mm f/0.95 Reviewed

The 7Artisans 25mm f/0.95 is now available and apparently, they are calling their 0.95 series of lenses the firefly series. Damian Brown posted his review of this unique lens the other day and there is a summary of the review below or you can watch the video above.

  • A chunky metal lens with a metal cover
  • Focus moves in and out
  • 595g without caps which is a bit more than the specs on the website
  • Feels well built
  • 99.7mm in length so better for larger bodies
  • The minimum focus distance of 0.25m
  • Smooth focus ring and a clickless aperture
  • 52mm filter thread
  • About 37.5mm full-frame equivalent
  • 11 lenses in 9 groups
  • Not sure why a Fujifilm shooter would want a clickless aperture beyond being able to select fractional apertures
  • 0.95 works well for moody dark scenes and if you stop down the lens is more than capable
  • vignetting is heavy wide open and goes away around f/5.6
  • Character is similar to the 35mm and 50mm f/0.95
  • Color rendering is ok
  • Distortion isn’t a problem
  • Purple fringing is only noticeable at 0.95
  • The lens is almost a good macro lens
  • This lens really shines at night
  • Great for someone that likes to play with character and fast glass
