New: Sainsonic Kamlan 55mm f/1.2 And 8mm f/3 Lenses

There is a new Kamlan 55mm f/1.2 full frame manual focus lens for Sony E-mount that could be interesting for those looking for fast inexpensive glass. Chinese glass isn’t known for it’s optical excellence, but sometimes it has a lot of character and you really can’t beat it for the price. Check Amazon for pricing.

Kamlan 55mm f/1.2 lens specification:

  • Mount: Sony E-mount
  • Format: 35 mm full frame
  • Focal Length (mm): 55 mm
  • 35mm equivalent focal length (APS-C): 82.5mm

The other new lens is the Sainsonic Kamlan 8mm f/3 fisheye lens for APS-C Sony E-Mount cameras. One of my favorite lenses right now is the Samyang 8mm f2.8 fisheye, but the Sainsonic Kamlan 8mm f/3 is less expensive on Amazon
