These lenses are such good value, but in fact, due to quality issues and their popularity, it would be good to buy several examples from different vendors at different times.

The lovely soft focus ones are ideal for flattering moody portraits esp in low light.

Some of the others would be very interesting if they hit their intended performance limits? Tweaking these lenses might also alter their performance?

Selling on, would be easy with a few examples of that precise lens pics. Keep two or three for your own use.

I agree that most c mount lenses are overpriced. However, that does not mean they will not increase in price!

Y'know... I've had a bit of annoyance regarding the Fujian lenses because new users keep confusing it with the excellent Fujinon-TV c-mount lenses, and the edge softness is so apparent. But the images posted in this thread make me appreciate it as a fun, cheap lens that covers the APS-C sensor.

Out of curiosity, what other c-mount lenses cover the NEX sensor? Do you think, for instance, a Fujinon-TV 35mm/f1.7 model CF35 for 1" video will cover the NEX sensor?

Well, the little brother of the Fujian 1.7/35, the 1.4/25 doesn't. Sad

I wonder if these perform any better on the new Nex, which seems to give better corner performance from wide lenses?

China has, not yet, taken Mt Fuji!

The naming is deliberate, but we lack locus standi to sue for the confusion!

The longer lens certainly has the better performance, but since they both are produced in the thousands still, I have neglected to buy them, despite 'watching' them for years!

The NEX has a good chance of minimal vignetting, but as the admirable Nordentro shows, the lens has good bang per buck, albeit on m4/3.
Even 1/2 inch sensor lenses, 8mm is actually very similar in coverage, will work at 38mm and above, at least for some lenses. I am just buying a D to c mount converter:-

Click here to see on Ebay

I wish to establish this for a navitar and a raptar, both 1.5 inches in FL.

For the NEX, I would say try the Fujian. If it pleases then keep but selling it will be easy, as m4/3 would know and other NEX users might like the effects evident on exemplars posted with the advert?

I am a great advocate of the fact that individual lenses differ greatly in some cases where QC is poor, as in China and DDR and USSR. Some offer clearly superior results even probably as to coverage although a mm is small in m4/3 and even APS sensors that can make a difference! So buy two or three at different times!

Always choose a vendor who has many sales over a newer one even if the newer one is cheaper. Another poster and I were customers of Cowy7 who like too many, absconded with $$$ one Xmas!

I bought mine on Ebay Wink

This lens has very soft edges, but can be useful as a special effect lens wide open. Edge sharpness improves when stopped down.

I just received mine from eBay. The aperture ring is almost stuck, and it won't open all the way to f/1.7 (you can see a hint of the blades). It takes a decent amount of force to close it to f/16, and then it even goes past that! I got mine past f/16 and the blades crushed into each other, not a pretty sight Smile The focus ring is smoother, but nothing as I expected (although it seems to be getting smoother the more I play with it).

Did you find your copies to be similar? I'm particularly worried about the aperture ring...

No. My copy has a smooth focus ring and a very smooth aperture, sometimes even too smooth, so that you change it accidentally.
