A Review of the Impressively Affordable TTArtisan 27mm f/2.8 Lens

TTArtisan has established themselves as a manufacturer of often astonishingly affordable lenses that still offer decent or even good image quality, often far outperforming their cost. The 27mm f/2.8 continues that trend by offering Fujifilm X Series users a wide angle lens with autofocus for just $149. This great video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in use.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this excellent video review takes a look at the TTArtisan 27mm f/2.8 lens for Fujifilm X Series mirrorless cameras. TTArtistan has earned a lot of respect for creating extremely affordable lenses that can still produce decent images, but most of those have been manual focus options. Of course, this makes the 27mm f/2.8 all the more intriguing. All that being said, you should not expect the kind of image quality you would get from a lens costing many times more, but it is actually quite impressive what you can get from this particular lens, especially when you stop down to f/4. Add in the fact that it weighs just 3.3 oz (94 g), and it looks like quite a nice option. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.
