Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MKII Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

May 1st, 2019

The first Kamlan lens I ever tested was the predecessor of this lens.  I reviewed it in 2017, and came away with the impression that while there were things I really liked (nice build and beautiful bokeh), the lens was more of a novelty at wide apertures due to being soft and low contrast.  The Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MKII is a different story, however.  The lens has grown in size and weight (and optical complexity), and the end result is a much more serious optical instrument.  I’ve been testing a Fuji version since January, and added the Sony version in March, and so I’m very familiar with the performance by this point.  Stay tuned for my review and video coverage. The photos below were taken primarily with the Fuji X-T3 along with the new Sony a6400 and a Sony a6500 (which gives the benefit of image stabilization!)
