Kamlan 32mm f/1.1 Displayed at CP+

Recently I told you how Kamlan unveiled the Kamlan 70mm f/1.1 for Fujifilm X at CP+.

In that article, I told you it will be their second f/1.1 lens for Fujifilm X mount after the Kamlan 50mm 1.1.

But that was not correct. Kamlan is going to offer also the Kamlan 32mm f/1.1 lens. You can actually see it also on the images I’ve shared in the original post as well as on the French website Phototrend (image on top of this article and link here).

So we have three f/1.1 lenses from Kamlan:

In addition to that, to complete the list, there is also a Kamlan 15mm f/2.0 that you can find only at Ali Express.

Thanks to the FR-reader who anonymously informed me about this and allowed us to extend our list of Kamlan lenses for Fujifilm X mount.

Fujifilm X Third Party Lenses

There is such a vast choice of native Fujifilm X mount lenses out there, that here on FujiRumors we have to dedicate them an apposite roundup.

In most cases we are talking of manual focus lenses, but also autofocus options are hitting the market.

The Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 is the first AF lens for Fujifilm (and FujiRumors delivered the worldwide first autofocus test about it). And we already reported in this article, that Viltrox is considering to launch 3 more AF lenses for Fujifilm soon. For all the details (focal length/aperture) about the upcoming Viltrox AF lenses for Fuji X, check out this article.

Since its launch, the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 is the best selling third party lens here on FujiRumors.

Today’s roundup includes also a review about the brand new Kamlan 21mm f/1.8, which comes with a gentle price tag, and seems to perform remarkably for what it costs.

Other lenses included in todays roundup are the 7Artisans 60mm f/2.8 Macro, Kamlan 50mm f/1.1, a couple of Mitakon X mount lenses and much more.

Kamlan 50mm f/1.1 MK II

The Kamlan 50mm f/1.1 MK II lens for Fujifilm X Mount is now available for pre-order at Adorama here and soon also at AmazonUS here and BHphoto here.

  • Material: All metal all glass
  • Matching Ring: Fuji X adapter
  • Dimensions: 2.8 x 2.6″ (72 x 68mm)
  • Weight: About 1.24 lb (563g)

Kamlan says:

The “Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MK2 APS-C lens” has a super large, bright f/1.1 aperture with 11 circular aperture iris that allows for great results in extreme low light conditions and also the ability to create beautifully creamy backgrounds. Brand new optical design can help you get great sharpness in all aperture range.

One of the key strengths of the Kamland 50mm f/1.1 MK2 is its high degree of color accuracy and richness. Unlike some normal large lenses, it does not introduce too much color cast to images but instead delivers a neutral, accurate color rendition even wide open. You can easily create great 3D effect and rich sense of atmosphere for your images.

Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MK2 features with dual high index of refraction  element groups. It can calibrate the spherical aberration effectively. The result is your images will be sharp from minimum distance to infinity.43rumors
Further extending the flexibility of the lens is the ability focus down to just 0.4m (1.3ft), allowing you to fill the frame with your subject and throw the background dramatically out of focus.

Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MK2 features a larger diameter element with  high index of refraction glass to help eliminate the onion rings. The whole defocus area is smooth and creamy.

You can pre-order at Adorama here.

Kamlan lenses for Fujifilm X can be found at AmazonUS, AmazonDE and AmazonUK.
