Should be a minimum focal distance of .5 M?  A max size of .11 is nothing to write home about.

Yes, 0.5m or 50cm, which is quite common for a 50mm lens.

cool news :)
i have the 35 1.7 and i like the quality, especially the all metal construction and especially for the price, which i think will be similar: ~90€
i don't need a 50 though...as i already got the kamlan 50 1.1 :D

I'm guessing that this should read "for SONY E-mount", not "FE". FE is full-frame, and all of the other mounts listed for these lenses are APS-C and smaller.

as far as i know you can use crop lenses on full frame sony's. with lenses that communicate the camera goes into crop mode and with manual lenses this can be set manually..or not

True! While 50mm 1.7 could be a great "universal" lens it should have a max. reproduction factor of 1:4 or so to have some close up capability.

Low price, 12 blade aperture and hopefully good IQ can make it some interesting lens but I have an Canon FL and FD lens of that FL / max. aperture so it has to be compared.

I highly suggest all Canon mirrorless owners take a look at the Meike 35 1.7 lens. It's a great little walk around lens for a 56mm equivalent.
