Meike 85mm f/1.8 FE lens in Stock for $199 at Amazon (and first review)

Share

The new Meike 85mm f/1.8 FE lens is in Stock for the first time at Amazon US and Amazon DE.

Christopher Frost tested this lens and writes:

Here we go with a brand new manual focus portrait lens from Chinese manufacturer Meike (according to them, the best pronunciation is ‘Maker’). It’s only for Sony’s E-mount mirrorless cameras, full-frame or APS-C. It’s a very low budget, manual focus option, but it does have /some/ electronics: camera-controlled aperture, EXIF information, and it detects when you move the focus ring so the camera can go into MF assist mode. Even inexpensive 85mm lenses tend to be quite sharp; let’s put it through my usual torture tests, and see what happens.

I got this from a new source. No idea if it makes sense at all:

A7S3 Will support: ProRes Raw + ProRes RawHQ

Would be surprised to learn this will be true!!!
