Chinese lens manufacturer 7Artisans has announced a 35mm f/5.6 tiny pancake lens for Leica M. Even though it’s fancy-looking thanks to the golden finish, it’s not as expensive as it looks: you can get it for only $199.

The new 7Artisans 35mm f/5.6 is designed for full-frame Leica M-mount cameras. It’s built from five elements in four groups and it features a fixed f/5.6 aperture. It’s a manual focus lens, and the focus range goes from approximately 30cm (0.98ft) to infinity. You control the focus via a small lever on the lens. The manufacturer notes that your Leica won’t recognize the lens unless you set the camera to operate without it.

Being a pancake lens, it’s pretty small and lightweight. It measures 60mm (~2.4 in) in diameter and 13mm (~0.5 in) in length and weighs approximately 128g (~0.3 lbs). Here are a few more photos:

The 7Artisans 35mm f/5.6 for Leica M is available through 7Artisans Amazon shop for $199. This is also where you can see some sample photos and see how the lens performs.

    I use this lens with Fujifilm and that is really fun one to use and 200$ is still affordable. I’ve made a review on it if anyone interested – https://youtu.be/w-aMF_drpxw

    I hope it is not against the rules.
