Citograph 35mm f8 brings everything in focus
Based on their successful Kickstarter campaign , the C.P Goers , a German startup , initially plan their always -on lens cap replacement lens to be available for shipping by March 2018 . The lens , which has no manual controls for aperture (yes ,you read that right , its fixed aperture at f8 ) and being a prime , it has no zoom or vibration control . .The lens , which has a minimum focusing distance of 3m(9 ft for your imperials!) to infinity weighs just 120g - making this a compact and possibly one of the smallest things you'd probably own , that is if you can digest the $550 asking price for those who don't sign up for the Kickstarter price of $220 . So is this the right lens for you ? wish the non kickstarter price was cheaper? Well C.P Goerz are still getting things ready for their 2018 release , and who knows, they might just drop the price later down the road.
The C.P Goerz Citograph 35mm f8 will be available for Canon EF , Nikon F , Sony E ,Micro 4/3 , Fuji X and Leica M .
