Chinese manufacturer SainSonic has announced a new 50mm f/1.1 lens for crop sensor cameras that is priced just $169 / £139.99.

Dubbed the Kamlan 50mm f/1.1, the new ‘nifty fifty’ is available for Sony E and Fuji X mounts, as well as Micro Four Thirds.

The Kamlan 50mm f/1.1 offers a focal length equivalent to 75mm on an APS-C camera and boasts an 11-blade aperture with a construction consisting of 5 elements in 5 groups.

SainSonic says its glass is also multi-coated to reduce distortion.

For the Kamlan 50mm f/1.1 price you get the lens, lens hood, front and rear lens caps and a microfiber cleaning cloth.
