Fuji Showcase 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 Lens for Fuji

To be honest I'm not sure how I tripped on this lens. But after using it for a few days I'm very glad I did. This lens retails for $119. and not unlike 7a's 25mm f1.8, ($79.), it seems to offer some very serious image quality for an exceptional price. The build quality appears to be very good, or at least the copy of the lens I got is well made, and optically it's quite strong with somewhat "busy", (I like to say "with character"), bokeh.
Here are some early images made with a X-E2 body and the 7a 55/1.4.

This last image is a still life setup I use often to check out lenses. You may have seen it in another post shot with another lens.

At that price, it's an almost no-risk proposition if one wants to try it and doesn't mind manual focus.

And I'd love to try this one as well:
