Dulens APO 85mm F2 Review
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.
