At the same time that I ordered the Pergear 25mm I also ordered the Pergear 50mm f/1.8.
Here’s my unboxing video:
And my review video:
You can find this lens for a bout $65 on Ebay or about $80 on Amazon (the Amazon link is an affiliate link. Which helps me operate my blog and YouTube reviews)
Over the past few weeks I’ve shot with it on my X-H1 and my X-T1.
Other than taking me a while to get used to focusing with these 2 Pergear lenses, it’s been really fun to shoot with them.
I noticed that when I used focus peaking on these lenses I would miss focus more often than I usually do. I eventually adjusted and shot some cool shots.
Here are a few tech specs about the lens:
- 6 elements in 4 groups
- 10 diaphragm blade
- Weight: 221g
- Aperture range F1.8 – F16
- Minimum focus distance: 38cm
- Filter size: 43mm
Here’s a list of Pros & Cons:
- Focusing & aperture rings turn in reverse order compared to Fuji lenses
- Clickless aperture (for video this works but I prefer clicks for photography)
- The Design. It has a Leica lens type feel.
- Good build quality
- Solid all around image quality
- Very little chromatic aberration and fringing
- Included lens hood and pouch
Just like with the other Pergear lens I tried it’s difficult to be disappointed in such a affordably priced lens. Beyond having a bit of an issue getting focus on occasion, I’ve been very impressed with the performance for the price with this lens.
This is a great budget prime lens for any Fujifilm X-Series camera owner. So if you just purchased an X-T4 or X-Pro3 this might be a good prime to start with or expand your lens selection. I haven’t tried to shoot portraits with it yet but I’m assuming it will do a good job with that.
