Pergear has launched their new 10mm f/8 fisheye pancake lens. It’s available in an array of APS-C mounts including Fuji X, Sony E and Nikon Z as well as Micro Four Thirds. It has a fixed f/8 aperture as well as a focus with a range of only 30cm up to infinity. It’s a tiny lens measuring a mere 55mm x 10mm, weighing only 80g and it’s designed specifically for mirrorless cameras.
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.
It’s been a while since we heard about the Funleader 18mm f/8.0 cap lens. Launched last October through a well-backed Kickstarter campaign, this wide angle lens essentially just looks like a body cap for your camera. But it’s actually, as you might have guessed, an 18mm wide-angle lens.
Well, now the lenses have gone out to all of the Kickstarter backers and now it’s on general sale. Not only that, but as well as the original Sony E and Leica L mount flavours, it’s now also available for Nikon Z, Canon RF and Fuji X mounts, too.
Japanese lens manufacturer MS Optics has released Aporia 24mm F2, a pancake lens for Leica M-mount. While all pancake lenses are slim and compact, this one is as slim as a lens cap. But it’s a “lens cap” that produces pretty neat photos.
Scrolling through my Facebook feed, I stumbled upon a sponsored post for an interesting Kickstarter campaign promoting Funleader Cap Lens 18mm f/8.0. It’s a very slim, lightweight, and very cheap wide-angle lens. As the name says, it’s so slim, that it looks like a lens cap.
What is the best street photography lens? Is it 50mm, 35mm, or perhaps 28mm? Well, maybe it’s something in between. In this video, Kai Wong grabs a 40mm pancake lens and hits the streets on Pancake Day. He gives you a few reasons why 40mm can be the best for street photography, so let’s see if you agree.
