Last month, Chinese company KIPON announced the first line of third-party lenses for Canon EOS R and Nikon Z cameras. ELEGANT, a line-up of five prime lenses for both Nikon and Canon, is now available for ordering in case you want to treat your full-frame mirrorless camera with a new lens.

The lenses range from 24mm to 90mm. All of them are manual focus, with f/2.4 aperture, and here are the lenses and the expected prices:

Since all lenses are manual focus, I believe that the price is reasonable. The original Nikon Z 50mm f/1.8 is around $600 and the Nikon Z 35mm f/1.8 is around $850. On the other hand, Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro is around $500, which is almost the same as Kipon’s counterpart. But all of the other Canon R lenses are more expensive, which is expected. Although, I haven’t had a chance to try out Kipon lenses and see what they’re capable of and how they compare to Canon and Nikon.

Kipon hasn’t announced detailed specs of the lenses. All we know is that they’re manual focus, f/2.4, they’re all primes and, well – cheap. So if you’re willing to give them a shot, you can order them via links above. And of course, if we get to some sample images and detailed specs, we’ll share.
