    Some photos taken with my c-mount (1") CCTV lens from Fujion.

    Very cheap but quick lens, unfortunately with extreme vignetting and distortion on the edges - but anyway I really like the final effect :)

    Just so we know, this is the Fujian lens? (Not Fujinon or Fujion...)
    Just clarifying because I have the Fujian 25 f1.4 and haven't noticed as much vignetting or distortion as yours shows...

    Thanks for notice, I didn't realized that there are 3 different lenses with the same nominal parameters (25mm/1.4) from so similar named brands. I think that seller mention name Fujion or Fujinon, and this is what I put in the title. But now, I made some investigation, look trough the internet pages, and now I believe that it is most likely Fujian lenses:

    1. There is no name on the box nor the lenses - just "TV LENS" inscription, just like on this photo :

    2. It is made in China (inscription on the box)

    3. Distortions are similar to the one I can see on the photos marked "Fuijan 25mm" from other photograpers

    4. Aperture: F/1.4-C

    Therefore I change the name of the thread to "Fujian" - but I am not 100% sure jet ;) .

    What is the body this picture was taken with? I use Lumix G1 mainly, ane vignetting is always noticeable (when no macro rings are used).

    I found some other photos that are marked "Fujian" (or FEiHUA that I belive is name of the manufacturer of the brand "Fujian") and look very similar to mine.
    For example here: Manual Focus Lenses :: View topic - FEiHUA (F&H) 25mm F/1.4 CCTV lens (it seems to be taken with Lumix G1 too).

    Do you have a photo of your lens? I will try to make a photo of mine later and put it here to clarify this.

    Oops, sorry my mistake. Mine is the Fujian 35 1.7
    I was about to upload a picture when I realised the difference to the one shown in the Flickr link.
    Oh well, here's how the 35 1.7 looks...
    Sorry for the intrusion!

    the lens has a really nice quality to it. I especially like the one of the parked cars.

    The first one is probably my favorite picture I've taken with this lens. With an E-PL2.


    And a couple more:

    This is lens I really have a lot of fun with. It's very light and really easy to use if you can remember the focus ring is near the camera, not then end of the lens. It's sharp in the center, even wide open, and has that "lomo" bokeh that gives me vertigo... but in a good way! :cool:

    Just to clarify (again!):

    The Fujinan 25mm f/1.4 is NOT a particularly inexpensive lens (prob. > $100 on eBay if you can find one), but is an excellent piece of glass. It's a high-end CCTV lens, made in Japan by the same company that makes Fuji cameras. I managed to score a used one, and it's very nice, though it vignettes too. Its bokeh is more 'conventional', which some may like and some may not.

    The Fujian lenses (25mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.7) are made in China and ARE very inexpensive lenses (about $30 new for either on eBay). I haven't used either, but I have a 35mm on order--slow shipping from China! These appear to have the swirly bokeh seen on some of the photos in this thread.

    Here's some images from the Fujinan 25mm f/1.4 (the expensive one!) taken wide open, showing the bokeh and vignetting:

    The second one shows that the lens is actually pretty sharp across the frame (compare the center to the bottom and right corner).

    My mistake, it should have been Fujinon, you're right.

    I just got the Fujian version yesterday. Here is my first shot with it.

    The vignetting looks worse on the LCD then it did on the photo when I looked at it on my iPad. I got the 35mm also.

    I took the lens out for a spin the other night... They are a lot of fun when you got time to slow down...

    It is a fun little lens, GH1 with the inexpensive 25mm 1.4 wide open. The focus ring being next to the body always throws me for a loop also.
