1. Introduction

The Chinese Yongnuo brand name has been progressing by leaps and bounds. Soon after the launch of the YN 50 mm f/1.8 the producers announced the YN 35 mm f/2.0 and the YN 50 mm f/1.4. The company also suggested that in the future they wouldn’t limit themselves to just Canon mount lenses and their line-up would also feature F Nikon mount instruments.

Our detailed test of the Yongnuo YN 50 mm f/1.8 showed that you don’t deal here with simply a clone of the Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II. Apart from small changes in the casing and the inner construction the Chinese lens also had a better aperture and a bit different optics. One glance at the YN 35 mm f/2.0 and you know that there might be even more differences between that device and the Canon EF 35 mm f/2.0. Of course we decided to check it out very thoroughly anyway.

We would like to thank the FoxFoto company for lending us one specimen of the lens for testing purposes.
