7Artisans is a group of Chinese enthusiasts who got together for a dinner in the summer of 2015. Some were interested in optical design, others were more experienced in managing factory production lines, and one was an avid collector of Leica lenses. All participants came to the same conclusion: "If we use our skills and work together, we can create new high quality original camera lenses." This is how the 7Artisans project began.

In the early stages, many different people joined the project, gradually forming an initial team. The path to achieving these goals was long and difficult. The story began with testing prototypes and identifying problems, improving the design, and optimizing the assembly and identifying further problems. We used these problem solving opportunities to reinforce our existing ideas and come up with completely new ones. The cycle of trial and error never stopped.

Years have passed since the first prototype was created. By September 2016, we had reached a total of 100 production samples of the 50mm f / 1.1 lens. Initially, we had many participants, but some of them left the project due to the long product development cycle. By the time production was completed, only 7 members remained.
And now every production package for the 50mm f / 1.1 lens says “7Artisans (Seven Masters)”. It is an honor to the participants who believed in the project from the very beginning and embodied the spirit of the "Masters". We are called 7Artisans for this confidence and determination.

7artisans lenses:

  1. 7Artisans 12mm Ff / 2.8 WIDE
  2. 7Artisans 35mm f / 1.2
  3. 7Artisans 35mm f / 0.95
  4. 7artisans 55mm f / 1.4
