Why I Love My Fujian 35mm 1.6 CCTV Lens With Sample Photos

$40 Fujian 35mm 1.6 Lens Review

I highly recommend this lens

When the lens arrived I actually couldn't believe how small it really was, I thought, this isn't going to produce a half decent photo. Oh no, was I ripped off? This seems more like a toy than a legit lens. Are people going to laugh at my tiny petrusion extending from the end of my tiny camera? What happened to me? I used to have a big, hunky DSLR and people knew I was serious. But now....where did my dignity go? This tiny format camera and lens combo cannot produce good images. It seems like this world has proved me wrong once again. In 2017 I am going full Sony mirrorless and have actually sold one of my nikons already and plan on buying another Sony body. This was a photo from my New Years Celebration. I love those bokeh bubbles in the background and you can really see how shallow the plane of focus is on the tablecloth. EEEKKk. Shallow.

Another thing I had to photograph was my new Patagonia boots gifted to me by my wife! Shooting up towards the windows brings in a whole bunch of light leaks and interesting bits. I think this lens is best used to try to achieve these sorta "artsy" photographs. I don't think it would make a good "professional" lens and I probably wouldn't bust it out at a formal headshot for a business executive. But for street photography or just capturing something from a strange angle, this lens is awesome!

Wrap It Up


Okay, admittedly the above images were edited using Lightroom so I decided this wouldn't be fair if I didn't upload an image shot in raw and exported with Lightroom without editing at all. The lighting of the Mercedes Benz interior was ideal and the subject matter not hard to look at. But I just wanted to show you what a photo looks like straight out of the camera with this tiny little lens. I would really recommend this lens for its artistic abilities and I promise it won't take up any precious space in your bag. With a price tag of $40 why would you not get one?

I will keep updating this blog post as I use this lens more. If you have any questions about the lens hit me up in the comment section below.
