Yongnuo Will Unveil Cheaper Clones of Nikon Lenses

Yongnuo Will Unveil Cheaper Clones of Nikon Lenses Before the End of 2015

One of the big stories in the world of camera gear this past year has been Chinese manufacturer Yongnuo’s expansion into cheap clones of Canon lenses. While Canon shooters are buzzing about their new budget glass options, Nikon photographers have been wondering if Yongnuo will ever offer clones of their favorite lenses.
Last week we published a couple of reviews in which the Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 II was found to outperform Canon’s version in many regards. Yongnuo’s lens was initially priced at $41 on eBay, but now the price is hovering at around $60 due to increased demand. Canon’s official version costs $125.

Cool! I hope they do more than just a 50mm f1.8

Now, when are they going to get to Pentax limited clones??? (never...)

Pentax limited lenses should have their own patented designs so we will not able to see these clones. Otherwise, it will be interesting to find a yongnuo 31mm f1.8 with $500 and better IQ...
