When it comes to portrait photography, the choice of lens can greatly influence the outcome of your shots. One lens that has been making waves in the photography community is the TTArtisan 50mm f/0.95 lens.

With its impressive specifications and unique characteristics, it's no wonder that many photographers are considering this lens as their go-to option for capturing captivating portraits. The TTArtisan 50mm f/0.95 lens is a manual-focus prime lens that's specifically designed for Leica cameras. I managed to get the Sony adapter and it works fine.

Its standout feature is undoubtedly its incredibly wide aperture of f/0.95. It allows for an exceptional depth of field control and low-light performance. This lens opens up a world of creative possibilities for portrait photographers, enabling them to achieve stunning subject isolation and dreamy bokeh. It makes the subject truly pop against a beautifully blurred background. This helps to separate your subject from the background in a way that draws attention to the main focal point – your subject. This characteristic is essential for portrait photography. It guides the viewer's gaze directly to the subject's eyes and expression.

Shooting portraits in low-light conditions can often be challenging. The TTArtisan 50mm f/0.95 lens comes to the rescue. The wide aperture allows more light to reach the camera's sensor. Thanks to that you'll get sharp and noise-free images even in dimly lit environments. This is particularly advantageous for indoor or nighttime portrait sessions.

While some might see the manual focus as a drawback, many photographers appreciate the control it provides. Manual focusing allows you to fine-tune the focus precisely on your subject's eyes or any other crucial detail. With f/0.95 applied, it can be difficult to keep the focus on individual elements. You must remember that.


The TTArtisan 50mm f/0.95 lens is undoubtedly a powerhouse when it comes to portrait photography. Its wide aperture, coupled with its ability to create stunning bokeh and handle low-light conditions, makes it an excellent choice for photographers aiming to capture emotive and compelling portraits. While manual focusing might require some practice, the creative control it offers is well worth the effort.

If you're looking to elevate your portrait photography with a lens that's capable of producing breathtaking results, the TTArtisan 50mm f/0.95 lens might just be the perfect addition to your gear arsenal.
