As you know, Yongnuo is a Hong Kong-based company dedicated to the design and manufacture of all kinds of photographic accessories, although the most popular among photographers was certainly the lighting, such as flash units.

For some years, however, it has also been dedicated to manufacturing targets that have been quite successful due to their value for money.

Recently, the brand unveiled a new lens, the YN 14mm 1: 2.8 for Canon and Nikon frames, and we thought it would be a good idea to consider what current goals you are using See the most interesting lenses.

As you can see, its lens catalog consists of a very bright fixed optics, ranging from the wide angle (with the mentioned 14 mm) to a short telephoto (100 mm), all with AF and Canon EF and Nikon Frames F (basically full) frame type which can, however, be used in models with APS-C sensor (applying the appropriate clipping factor). It is, as we have been counting since, optics that are almost identical to models of these brands, often referred to as “clones”.

Of course, about four years ago, when they started in this market , we asked ourselves if their goals were going to be mere clones of low price without great quality or they would be up to the task.

Well, beyond the ethical question about copying the work of others, it seems that time has proved right to the Chinese manufacturer that has built a reputation for its goals of low price but very decent quality . Here are our selection of the most outstanding:

YN 14 mm ƒ2,8

The recently introduced introduces the Yongnuo’s lower focal distance optics, which puts them in the ultra-wide angle range, a risky bet after launching models with much more conservative focus. Like all of its models, this YN 14mm 2 2.8 has features very similar to a Canon model (especially the Canon EF 14mm f / 2.8L II USM), but at a much lower price.

To check the optical quality, we still have to wait, but we can foresee that it is at the peak of its brothers and offers very acceptable results for the reduced price. What we know is its construction with twelve elements arranged in nine groups and a membrane with seven blades, the minimum focal distance is 20 cm, the cover 114 and the weight 780 grams.

YN 35 mm ƒ2

We give a jump in terms of focal (without leaving the scope of the angular objectives), to speak of a wide use among all types of photographers. This is the YN 35 mm ƒ2 , another supposed clone of a Canon lens as we told you some time ago , which then also appeared as a replica of a Nikon lens .

Available as we say in two versions, in both cases it has a construction of seven elements in five groups, minimum focusing distance of 25 cm, seven-blade diaphragm with maximum opening of ƒ2 and a weight below 200 grams.

As always, the best price, less than one hundred euros any of its versions right now in Amazon , when its equivalents in Canon and Nikon have a recommended price of 649 and 349 euros (respectively).

YN 50 mm ƒ1.8

We now go to what is the best best seller of the Chinese manufacturer, with which he started in the optical market and we already included in this list of recommended objectives for Canon cameras . Not surprisingly, the YN 50mm ƒ1.8 is a “price- driven ” version of a widely recommended focal for a variety of reasons , and again looks “suspiciously” like a Canon and Nikon lens.

Its construction relies on six elements distributed in five groups and its diaphragm has six leaves and maximum opening of ƒ1.8. The minimum focusing distance is 45 cm and its weight of only 120 grams in the Canon version and 203 grams in the Nikon. And its virtues can already be imagined, luminosity, compact size and optical quality at an almost irresistible price: Less than 50 euros for the version with Canon mountand less than 100 for the Nikon mount , when its “equivalents” in Canon and in Nikon amount to 150 and 239 euros (respectively).

YN 100 mm ƒ2N

The final target we selected for this list is just the longest focus of the Yongnuo catalog, the YN 100mm ƒ2, which in turn “bases” on a very similar Canon target that the company has also adapted to Nikon ( who does not have a similar target in his catalog for this time).

Its construction consists of eight elements in six groups and its membrane has nine blades and the maximum aperture is ƒ2. The approximate weight of the lens is 390 grams and the minimum focusing distance is 90 centimeters at a maximum magnification ratio of x0.14.
