Neewer Announces Fast 35mm f1.2 For Fuji & Sony APS-C Mounts

By Wendell Weithers on June 18th 2018

Mirrorless mounts have been the Wild West of the photography and video landscape. They’ve given manufacturers with a patent and a dream a chance to strike gold whilst there’s still room in the market to make a name for themselves.

Certain territories such as Fuji‘s X-mount are well established and difficult to penetrate. Have any of you seen a Zeiss Touit on an X-T2? Not Many I’d guess. Sony’s, on the other hand, have plenty of room for growth and it is an attractive option for any hopeful third-party titans. Enter the new Neewer, (say that five times fast….yea you sound silly), 35mm f/1.2 prime lens.

This could be a fun and affordable entry into the market for Neewer and they may be able to win a few fans in the market by the time Canon and Nikon launch their new systems. So maybe they’ll be able to take this lens and send it to those mounts when the time comes.

Currently, the lens is unavailable and only offered on Amazon. When it is in stock, you can expect the lens to sell for $120.
