I love to take picture with my FujiFilm X-T1. And I love to use a large aperture lens so that it gives nice Bokeh effect.
Thanks to him (i.e. Kai Wong) did a review on this Kamlan 50mm f1.1 lens. After watching the video, I immediately logon to Amazon and bought it. And guess what, it delivered to me in Singapore.
This is where I bought it from. When I make the order, there are still a few more. But after that, all stocks gone. hahaha
I pay < US$30 for the delivery to deliver up to my doorstep in Singapore. I make the order on Oct 15, and I received it today which is Oct 19. I love Amazon.
For something that is US$170. The box cannot be so pretty ya.
The usual China’s quality assurance certificates.. hahaha
Nice and firm foam to protect the lens.
There you go … KamLan (Aiyo, whoever Chinese who come up with this name definitely not a Hokkien!!) 50mm F1.1 lens. US$170 nia.
Really feels cheap.
It is quite plastic feel.
The aperture ring is not so smooth to turn. But the focus ring is ok.
What do you expect for a US$170 lens????
Hahahaha… So, let’s see if the photo taken with this lens is OK?
OK… not too bad. The Bokeh is quite smooth and nice.
I think “boleh tahan”…
Wow.. look at all the paintings behind the 毽子.
OK. It is an interesting lens.
I tested a few shots.. and I think I can accept it so far.
Compare to my Mitakon 35mm F0.95, the focusing (manual) is much easier to achieve at F1.1.
Thanks Kai Wong’s recommendation. Hahahahaha
