Meike Launches a Cheap 50mm f/1.7 Lens for Canon RF and Nikon Z

The Hong Kong-based camera equipment company Meike has launched an affordable 50mm f/1.7 manual-focus prime lens for Canon and Nikon’s full-frame mirrorless camera systems.

In addition to Sony and Fujifilm cameras, the Meike 50mm f/1.7 is now available in Canon RF and Nikon Z mounts.

The brushed metal lens features sealing against dust and water. The front of the lens has a multi-layer nano optical coating that reduces glare and ghosting.

Other specs and features of the lens include 6 elements in 5 groups, a 52mm filter size, a minimum focusing distance of 1.64 feet (0.5m), and a weight of 10.9oz (310g).

Here are some official sample photos captured with the lens:

The Meike 50mm f/1.7 is available now over on Amazon (in Canon and Nikon flavors) for $140, though the price may be as low as $110 depending on availability.
