TTArtisans has made its name with quirky, affordable rangefinder and mirrorless lenses. This portrait-friendly 90mm F1.25 comes in at a relatively low $515, but what are the drawbacks? Well, first off, it’s manual focus only. Secondly, you’ll notice that some of the images in this gallery have no or incorrect F-stop data attached – that’s because there’s no electronic link to the camera’s body. Hence the EXIF is lacking.
But, especially at a portrait focal length, soft optics can be helpfully flattering, and the price is appealing for such a fast aperture. You’ll find plenty of examples to peruse in this gallery (Raw files and processed JPEGs, shot with the Nikon Z7 and Z9). If there’s a shot you want more information about, hit us up in the comments and the sample photographer will try and fill in the missing information.
