A flawed but fun lens.

Is that the Fujinon-TV HF35HA for 1/2"?

I have a Fujinon-TV CF35 for 1" that I'm adapting to m4/3 and I'm counting on it to be much sharper off the center than that. I have the Fujinon-TV CF25B adapted for m4/3 and it's a beautiful lens with full coverage and sharp corners.

Ha! I had the wrong lens name! It's Fujian (I'm sure a cheap Chinese knock-off). Sorry for the confusion! About $30. I've corrected it in the title.

I'm sure it all makes sense now :) but yes, that's the IQ straight from the box, lol.

HA! I thought 'Fujian' when I first saw the photos and then I double checked your post title because I thought I mis-read it!

Depends on what you want. 1:1 aspect ratio also "helps," but I use this lens for a "retro" or "dreamy" kind of effect anyway, so I'm good with it.

I think I did use it for video. It's exactly what you would expect, lol.

I reckon it looks really good. Your pics are good examples.
I saw some on another forum too that were really really quite good too.
Come to think of it, I think they were 1:1 square format.

I asked about video because it looks like it's small, light and easy to use - and being a "TV" lens I thought it would be nice and smooth to operate.

Anyway, I've just ordered one with C mount adapter so I'll see for myself in a couple of weeks...

You showed us some great image examples, thanks !!!

And I also ordered this lens a few hours ago + a C-mount adapter, at that cheap price, it's definitely worth to try for fun :tongue:

One quick comment -- the lens lacks in contrast, so boost it up in post processing. Most of these shots were processed in Lightroom, where I boosted Contrast and raised the blacks, and a tweak of targeted color saturation to make some of the fall colors pop. Also, some clarity increase, too.

some more pictures from this tiny lens

my opinion,

1. it's cheap around $ 35 - 40 include shipping

2. it's soft f 1.7 very soft, f2 soft, f2.8 OK, f4 good

3. small image circle, so it's only sharp in the very center of image ,
stopping down is little better

4. it's easy to flare

5. simple structure

Autumn morning mist with the Fujian lens.

Contrast and Clarity adjusted in LR3, along with selective saturation.
