Dulens APO 85mm F2 Review

Dustin Abbott

July 13th, 2020

As you probably know, I review a wide variety of lenses.  I’ve increasingly found myself reviewing lenses from brand-new lens makers in recent years.  It seems like the rise of mirrorless cameras in particular has triggered a lot of fresh creativity, and there are some excellent alternatives out there to the established brands.  The Dulens APO 85mm F2 is the first lens from Dulens, but there’s a lot of maturity in the design and performance of the lens.  It handles and performs much like a Zeiss lens (including having an Apochromatic design), with a beautiful rendering, lovely bokeh, and an incredibly smooth manual focus ring.  It is a manual-only lens for Canon EF or Nikon F mounts, and I think it best suited for someone who does video.  It produces gorgeous footage and is a genuine joy to use manually.  Check out the photo gallery for inspiration and watch the video review for all the details.
