Kalimar 50mm f/1.7

(2 customer reviews)

The lens is made up of multiple glass elements, which are coated to reduce flares and improve contrast. The lens is well-built and can produce sharp images with good resolution. The lens has a wide aperture of f/1.7, which allows for good low-light performance and shallow depth of field, creating a pleasant bokeh effect. The lens is a manual focus lens, so you will have to adjust the focus yourself. The lens was manufactured a while ago, so it may not be as readily available as newer lenses. Overall, the Kalimar 50mm f/1.7 lens is a good option for those looking for an affordable prime lens with good optics and build quality. There are other alternatives available in the market, but this lens is a good option for those on a budget.
