I know I said I wasn’t after a new lens, but I have had this yearning for another fisheye lens. So I ordered one. Things didn’t go as planned, and so I didn’t get one. But I did get something else totally opposite, and it’s something I enjoy using!
So, I ordered a TTArtisan 7.5mm F/2 fisheye lens. It came the next day, sealed and as new, however, when I opened the box, it wasn’t the fisheye, but a brand new TTArtisan 40mm macro in the wrong box! To say I was devastated is an understatement, but I also love my macro, and a macro lens was always on the cards as a distant purchase.
I worked out a deal with the seller (a famous YouTuber as it happens) and I am now the owner of this TTArtisan 40mm F/2.8 Macro lens. I’ve only done a few test shots at various focusing (it also acts as a 40mm prime), but I’m pleasantly surprised.
There are three things that made me keep this lens. Firstly, I love macro, and I would have bought one sooner or later, secondly, I had it really cheap because of the mishap and thirdly, I’ve been thinking of buying a manual lens to play around with, and was going to get an adaptor for my old Canon 50mm lens, and now I don’t have to!
I’m happy with the images, the flowers with the added F-Stops are smaller than your thumbnails. All images in MGA Colour Chrome+ recipe.#
What a day I didn’t expect!
