The lens has a wide aperture of f/1.4, which makes it great for low light photography and creating a shallow depth of field. The build quality of the photographic lens is good, and it has a solid feel to it. The lens has six elements, which help to produce sharp and clear images with good resolution. It also has lens coating to reduce lens flare and ghosting. The manufacturing time of the lens is not specified. The bokeh produced by the lens is smooth and creamy, making it great for portrait photography. The lens does not have autofocus, so it requires the photographer to manually focus the lens to get the desired focus. Overall, the Chinon Auto 55mm f/1.4 lens is a great option for photographers who want a high-quality photo lens that allows for manual focus and produces sharp and clear images with a smooth bokeh.
