Zhongyi Freewalker 24mm f/1.7 Lens Review

Zhongyi Freewalker 24mm F1 7 Sony E (3)

You may be forgiven for asking who on earth Zhongyi are, and where they have come from. Zhongyi are a Chinese lens manufacturer who have been making lenses for around 30 years now. They have recently bought the Mitakon brand, and have begun to expand their lens portfolio to include lenses for Fuji X-series and Sony E-mount cameras with APS-C sensors, as well as Micro Four Thirds cameras. This manual focus wide angle lens for the Sony E-mount system provides an angle of view equivalent to a 36mm lens on a 35mm camera and sports a fast f/1.7 maximum aperture. The lens costs $349 (£230) direct from Zhongyi, which seems reasonable. In this review, we'll take a look at how it performs.
