    Default China Made Kamlan F1.1 Lens

    Recently bought a unknown brand lens from taobao for my Olympus Pen F. Funny name if you pronounce it in Hokkien It's a m4/3 mount so no need adapter. Light and balance when mounted on my Pen F. I love the bokeh though F1.1 has a really shallow dof. However I realised that peaking for manual focus does not work. Compared to using a manual lens on Fujifilm X1 the peak focus will still works. Below are some sample image except the last one taken with 25mm.

    I believe the kamlan 50mm F1.1 is the same lens by 7artisans as their aperture ring is "clickless" for video.
    Still 7artisans sound more western like the movie magnificent7 which is a tribute to jap movie 7 samurais by Akira Kurosawa who has samurai lineage. While kamlan is black ,7artisans is silver anodised and is available in M43,don't know about kamlan probably by now ther do. Also both have 12 aperture blades which is round when stopped down which produces nice round bokeh for portraits.

    Can find them in Aliexpress or Taobao if you can read chinese.

    they are very different lenses as the 7 artisan is much bigger and heavier as it covers a 35mm image circle, while the Kamlan is used for the APSC n M43 crop sensors, much cheaper and lighter.
