Hi Erik,

A couple of days ago, I just posted a review of the 7ARTISANS 60mm f2.8 macro lens that can be had new for less than $160. At this price it's a steal

Here is what I think of it along some macro shots I took with it: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/65171810

Thanks, I already saw and read it :). Looks very interesting. I have not made up my mind yet, but all the info in this topic is helpful.

Does anyone know when that MK2 version of the 7Artisans is going to be available and have any comparisions with the MK1 already been done?

Hi Erik,

If I had known about the MkII before buying the MkI I'd have waited and bought the MkII instead for sure. For one, it's much smaller and lighter and the optical formula is completely different (more elements). I strongly suspect the MkII is better optically than the first version.

A fellow member posted a comparison between the two versions here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/65207033
