Chinon MC 55mm f/1.7

The lens is manually focused, which gives the photographer more control over their shots. It has six lens elements and a lens coating, which helps to reduce flare and ghosting. The build quality is good and the lens is lightweight, making it easy to carry around. The resolution of the photographic lens is high, which means that images are sharp and detailed. The manufacturing time of the lens is not specified. There are alternatives to this lens, but they may have different features or specifications.

Optical design

Has 6 aperture blades, this number of blades are commonly used. Having rounded blades provides out of focus circle shape closer to a circle. Wide open, subjects located outside the depth of field are shown very blurred.

Physical characteristics

37 mm long, this small lens should alway be in the camera bag. 49 mm lens filter diameter, you are one step from the next standard filter size, buy step-up ring and bigger filter but you can chose from plenty options. Weights 200 grams so convinient to carry.
