7Artisans 35mm f/2

My opinion on the 35mm focal length hasn’t shifted much since my recent attempts to adopt it into my workflow. Despite being happy with a lot of the snapshots I’ve produced on my Olympus XA, my constant 35mm companion, I still feel that the focal length has one clear strength, and I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to put it into practice in a way where I simply can’t make excuses in the way that I often find myself doing when I fail with it in my snapshots.

It’s finally coming . A silver 7Artisans 35mm f/2. I have an excellent 35mm lens on hand currently, a Voigtlander 35mm F/2 Ultron, but the thought of the 7Artisans in silver excites me. I got the black one when it first came out and I always thought there should be a silver one because it would look so good. And now that it is actually happening, makes me think about my time with the 7Artisans 35mm f/2.

As the official release of the 7Artisans 35mm f/2 looms, I’ve been getting excited about it and have taken to using the prototype I’ve had kicking around for a while. Mechanically it’s not perfect, and I suspect even in terms of image quality isn’t exactly what they’re intending in the final lens, but it certainly gives some tantalising hints as to what the final lens will be like.
