A while ago, we posted on our official Banggood Facebook page about this singular 50mm Phenix lens for Canon cameras. Surely, some of you would not like the fact that you got to adjust aperture manually and you have no autofocus function but it actually did not bother me. The only thing that actually bothered me was that because you can?t adjust the aperture using the camera settings the images metadata does not show the aperture values used in each photo. High aperture values F1.7 making it an excellent portrait lens and ideal for low light conditions, extremely light and compact, compatible with Canon SLR cameras, affordable price, good optics considering the price, good grip in the focusing ring. Does not have automatic focus or automatic aperture control, rather cheaply built, can be slow to focus using manual focus, the aperture control is a bit too close to the camera body, the camera does not show aperture values in the viewfinder or display, no image stabilization features.
Please if you have any questions or comments or would like to request extra information do not hesitate and comment bellow and I will get back to you. My biggest source of support for this free website is when you use those or any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Considering its extraordinary optical complexity and the unique competitive edge it affords to its professional owner, it's a bargain at about $4,000 today. 1.) Used at larger apertures, gives a unique look which cannot be duplicated any other way.
Today when every other amateur photographer is probably using the same camera (or better) than you are, one way to stand out and win more jobs is to master a lens like this and give your images something that weekend amateurs can't copy.
I'll start with a lot of superlatives, but know that this lens works great for every day photography. In this case, we have a super lens, and as a normal 50mm lens, it can be used for everything every day.
It works on their rangefinder cameras, and has been the fastest lens in 35mm photography for many decades until copied by LEICA in 2008. Canon first announced this lens for sale along with the announcement of Canon's first professional AF camera, the EOS 1 in September 1989.
With this book, Canon subtly reminds pro photographers that Canon are unquestionably today's leaders in professional photography, regardless of whatever brand you used to shoot. Front-group focus; the front 10 elements extend as focused more closely while the rear element stays put. The rear nodal point seems further away from the image plane than most of Canon's other lenses.
Lens focuses only with the USM; manual focus keys the computer which in turn runs the USM to focus the lens. On APS-C cameras, it gives angles of view similar to what an 85mm lens would give on a 35mm or full-frame camera. Much better than the fidgety bayonet hoods of amateur lenses, this hood simply pushes-on and locks all by itself.
As you'll see, today's $4,000 used price is about the same real price for which it has sold. If you can't get brilliant, sharp and colorful photos with this lens, you're doing something wrong. On my 5D Mark III and EOS 1V it's plenty fast — much faster than was the awful EOS-M even with its own dedicated STM lenses!
Using regular AF on my 5D Mk III there is some shot-to-shot variation; not every shot will be perfect with living, breathing subjects and photographers that move around a few inches here or there. The lens is so big that the switch isn't quite where Canon shooters expect it; you have to reach up a bit.
My 2006 Rebel XTi isn't as consistent; focus will vary by larger amounts from one frame to the next.
Bokeh, the quality of out-of-focus areas as opposed to the degree of defocus, is fair, but since out of focus areas are usually so wildly out of focus, it doesn't matter. This shot is a perfect example of why this lens is needed today for action shots in the dark. If you want an effect, the blur in the corners starts to look a bit like Photoshop's Radial Blur, which simulates period cameras.
Coma, or saggital coma flare, is when bright points of light in the corners turn into batwing-shaped blobs. For more critical use, use these values in Photoshop's Lens Distortion tool to remove the distortion. This is huge for a normal lens, and still smaller and lighter than most of the teles people hump around without complaint.
Most of its body is a strong grippy grip, made of moderately stiff rubber like the heel of a man's dress shoe or a hockey puck. When you use the depth of field preview button, the odd position of the rear nodal point makes the corners of the viewfinder dim much more than you'd expect. The reason we see rings is from the way the two aspherical elements are ground to approximate the desired asphere.
If you don't like it, there is no automatic correction profile for digital Canons, however it's easy to correct with Photoshop's Lens Correction tool.


I've greatly exaggerated the falloff by shooting a flat gray target and presenting it against a gray background, In actual use, it's nowhere as obvious as this.
It may have been my imagination, but I think I once had the entire front cell of the lens start unscrewing as I turned the filter. If I use an ordinary filter on a DSLR, I get a mild inverted ghost image of bright points of light reflected from the sensor. The new Canon 40mm f-2.8 prime is a fun all-purpose lens that focuses as close as 1 foot, is well-built (including a metal mount), and will only set you back $199. To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin.
And finally, with the 40mm twisted into a Canon Rebel T1i, I crashed the Lowepro Summer picnic for some candid work. I like to call this lens the "optical body cap" because it virtually adds no thickness to my 60D when packed in the camera bag.
In the “Why I love my…” articles we will be asking photographers to tell us about a specific piece of equipment that they have developed a strong bond with and whose presence has improved their photographic experiences.
Keith Barlow is a an amateur photographer based in North Wales who loves photographing people.
I never thought I would have the bottle to do this but after studying the steps for quite some time I eventually built up the courage to give it a go. Totally agree though, the build quality of the Sigma is better, Canon really do need to sort this issue out. Registered Office: 13 Frensham Road, Sweet Briar Industrial Estate, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3 2BT. Warehouse Express Limited acts as a credit intermediary offering credit products from a panel of one lender. Understandably many skeptics questioned the capabilities of this lens and requested a more detailed review showing examples of photos and a comparison of this lens. The focusing and aperture rings are plastic; however, they still feel pretty solid and provide a nice grip. This means that it has no autofocus function and you won?t be able to control the aperture using your SLR. This can be a bit annoying if you are intending to compare how the lens performs at different apertures, as you might forget the settings you used in certain photos.
I tried some close ups, portraits and some landscape photos and I was satisfied with the results. Unlike all the other look-alike lenses out there, this unique masterpiece lets me create images that I can't make with any other lens. With today's modern DSLRs with AF Fine Tuning and Live View AF, it's actually more useful today than when it came out in 1989! Manual focus is motor driven; the focus ring is an encoder that tells the camera to tell the motor what to do. It's the one Super-Lens you can use for photographing anything and everything in any light. It wasn't designed to sell as much as it was designed to show once-great Nikon who was the new top dog in town. There is no way in software or with other lenses to duplicate its precise combination of artistically pleasing falloff and its unique rendering of out-of-focus areas. If you can't control your background when shooting outside your studio, this lens lets you make the background go away.
At normal apertures, it's super-sharp, too, with no more distortion than Canon's other 50mm lenses. It's super sharp in normal use, and when it gets dark, there is no lens that comes close to its light gathering power.
You can only see what this lens does by looking at the actual pictures, not by looking through your viewfinder. Any faster lenses are for copy machines, non-mainstream junk formats, recycled CCTV lenses, or old oscilloscope and x-ray cameras.
The LEICA lens' only real claim to fame is that it's expensive, but as far as photography is concerned, LEICA's rangefinder cameras lack the accuracy to focus it perfectly unless you use Live View which is only available on the LEICA M typ 240, and by the time you get it all to work, your subject has left the building. It was shown in the catalogs for the EOS 650 and EOS 620, and no one heard anything else about it for a while. This becomes apparent as weird corner darkening seen only in the finder (not actual images) with depth-of-field preview. There's no need to stop shooting and have to line-up dots; just push it on any way you like. Unlike many other ultraspeed lenses, the sides and corners are in focus at the same distance as the center. Even in manual focus, the lens has to be attached to a working EOS body for the lens to focus. It's about as fast or faster than what people accept today from iPhones or mirrorless cameras; more than enough for almost anything if you know what you're doing.


If you are really picky, you will probably need different AF Fine Tuning values at close versus far distances.
No worries, just as LEICA shooters learn to compensate an inch here or there, if shot with an older camera, learn how or where to focus for perfect results with your lens. Even without AF Fine Tuning, my Rebel XTi gets plenty of in-focus shots, not bad for Canon's cheapest DSLR from 2006.
Blur circles at the largest apertures are a little weird, as expected for a bi-aspheric lens. This is often a problem with conventional fast normal or wide lenses, and one of the main reasons aspherical elements are used.
These aren't facts or specifications, they are the results of my research that requires hours of photography and calculations on the resulting data.
If the sensor wasn't accepting photons from stronger angles, the blur circle would cease to grow at larger apertures, and take on some weird, probably rectangular, form.
If shooting something like this below, take off your filter or use a multicoated one to avoid the point ghosts. It's not macro (even though Canon says that on the side of the lens), but it is close enough for interesting compositions.
It might be a relatively new, current product, or an old, battered ever faithful bit of gear. Well, it is to satisfy those requests that we have decided to take this unique lens to Banggood Labs for a brief review.
I wouldn’t recommend you to buy a lens like this if you are planning to have you camera in auto mode at all times. Another thing that some of you might find uncomfortable is that the aperture ring is kind too close to the body of the camera and it can be a bit a bit difficult to grip properly, plus you need to constantly look at the aperture value you are selecting as the camera viewfinder won?t display it. Bellow we have some  samples that you can actually take a look at.  I must say although, that if you are trying to take photos of moving objects…well it can be kind of frustrating as you need to constantly adjust the focus by yourself, so certainly not a sports photography lens. There is nothing much to fear regarding the optics as you will notice in the examples bellow the lens is sharp and produces no visible aberrations, at least in the shorts tests I performed. Today it works great with all the AF sensors; when it came out, cameras only had one AF sensor and no way to fine-tune the lens to your camera body yourself. Technically it performs far better than it should, and used at its limits, which are the very limits of photography itself, it can help give unique renditions that other photographers with more limited tools will not be able to duplicate.
It scared the heck out of Nikon, who was hoping that no one, especially professionals, would notice. If you're even a fraction of a human hair off in focus, you'll get soft magenta halos instead of sharpness. Turn the ring when it's not on a camera or with the camera turned off, and it won't do anything.
Contrary to folklore, this lens' super-speed doesn't help it focus any better in the dark than other lenses Like focus screens, cameras are optimized for slower lenses and thus faster lenses don't help it focus any better in the dark. The service manual tells a licenced service facility how to adjust the lens digitally for any sample of camera. The sample tested here seems to need a value of about +10 on my 5D Mk III; yours will be different.
We rarely notice this, because our own eyes are less sensitive to color in very dim light as well.
It controls manual focus as an encoder to the camera's computer, which in turn drives the electronic focus motor in the lens. I'm thinking I'm better off applying those funds to the 100mm macro lens I've had my eye on. It might be a near perfect combination of form and function that is to be put up on a pedestal and worshipped, or a flawed and challenging device that requires a fair bit of effort to wrangle the best out of, but whose companionship is essential.
The overall build quality of the lens is obviously rather cheap but actually not bad, considering the lens costs 79 bucks.
You will obviously still be able to control shutter speed and ISO using you camera built in settings. Collectors haven't discovered this lens yet; it has always sold for about $4,000, so get yours while you still can.
On a modern DSLR, this lens can see and stop action in the dark even better than the human eye. This lens made Nikon look like turkeys, and helped Canon win the professional 35mm camera market away from Nikon in the 1990s.
