      Meike has presented a new MK 85mm f/1.8 MF lens with the Sony E mount, which may satisfy the photographers with a very limited budget.

      The optical system is based on 9 lenses placed in 6 groups, with the 9-blade aperture. The minimum focus distance is 85mm and the lens is manual.

      1). Meike MK 85mm f/1.8 MF

      The filters with the diameter of 67mm can be mounted on the front lens and the camera's body has been made of plastic. MK 85mm f/1.8 MF is not sealed.

      As for now, the price of the lens is not known yet, but taking into account the fact that the reflex version with the AF motor costs almost $200, we can expect that the cost of the manual version will be much lower.
      Yongnuo is not wasting time - the YN 35mm lens described today is the fourth lens of the producer about which we are informing this year.  The main properties of  the lens concern the complex optical system with the advanced defect correction, good resolution,  effective autofocus and resistant body. This bright full-frame camera may become an interesting proposition for the fans of street, reportage or even portrait photography.
      The optical system of the lens is based on 11 elements placed in 9 groups - among them we will find two aspherical lenses and two low-dispersion ones. Yet another procedure used by the producer in order to minimize the appearance of the light flares and light leaks is covering the lenses with several anti-reflective coatings. The aperture of the lens consists of 7 blades and its nominal hole is f/1.4. The minimum focus distance is 35cm.

      The effective DC Motor is responsible for the speed of work of the autofocus. Thanks to it, the AF is to be quick, precise and it should work well even in the "Live View" mode. On the body of the lens, we will find a frame which facilitates manual focusing and which shows the scale of the hyperfocal distance. Thanks to the USB connection, it will be possible to update the lens' software. 

      2). Yongnuo YN 35mm f/1.4
      Yongnuo YN 35mm f/1.4 is equipped with gold-plated contacts and the metal mount has been covered with the chrome layer. All of this is supposed to positively influence electrical conductivity and general durability of the lens. The device has the dimensions of 82 × 111mm and it weighs 810g.
      The detailed specification of the lens is not known yet. Unfortunately, we also don't know when YN 35mm f/1.4 will appear on sale and how much it will cost.
