SainSonic Kamlan 28mm f/1.4 Image Gallery

May 21st, 2018

The Kamlan 28mm f/1.4 is a brand new lens from the Chinese lens maker SainSonic.  I’ve been privileged to have my hands on a prerelease copy of the Kamlan 1.4 for a while and can now share some photos and content with you.  This is the second lens that I’ve used from SainSonic (I also reviewed the Kamlan 50mm f/1.1 lens), and I can already see signs of maturation in the mechanical construction of the lens and the optical performance.  This is going to be a very interesting lens for those who would like to “get their feet wet” with either a manual focus lens or with a wide aperture prime at a very low price of entry.  It’s a beautifully made, beautifully compact lens at a very affordable price, and the focal length is fairly close to perfect as a “normal” lens (on the Sony a6500 I’m testing it on the focal length is a 42mm full frame equivalent).  This is a focal length you can use for a LOT of things…and it has surprisingly beautiful rendering.  I’ve got a pretty massive catalog of images from the lens as I’ve been shooting with it for most of the year already. P.S.  Check out a lot of my recent YouTube videos where I’ve secretly been using this lens extensively to video a lot of my segments.  The Kickstarter Campaign for this lens will launch in June (check back for the link shortly), but in the meantime you can get familiar with this surprisingly excellent lens.  P.S.  Buying links won’t be live for a couple of weeks, so be patient!
