This lens is all metal. Even the two caps! But it does not come with a hood which is very annoying! I just hope that they would reconsider!

Review: SLR Magic 23mm f1.7 (Fujifilm X Mount) | Chris Gampat

Review: SLR Magic 23mm f1.7 (Fujifilm X Mount) | Chris Gampat | SLR Magic Hyperprime Lenses | Scoop.it


At last! The most rangefinder-like of the mirrorless camera systems has a 35mm equivalent lens! We’ve always been a fan of SLR Magic’s lenses here on the Phoblographer and when we received the 23mm f1.7 in the mail, we were super stoked. It renders a near 35mm field of view on the cameras. Though Fujifilm themselves will be releasing one later on from the publishing of this piece, they were beaten to the cake by SLR Magic. We’ve spent a couple of days with this lens since seeing at Photokina, so far and we have to say that this one makes the X Pro 1 feels like the Leica cameras that I was trained on.

 

Pros and Cons

Pros

- Beautiful bokeh

- Fairly sharp wide open in the center and even sharper when stopped down

- Excellent ergonomics

- Solid build quality


Cons

- Corner sharpness isn’t the greatest

 

......

Conclusions

While the SLR Magic 23mm f1.7 is an extremely fun lens to use, it will also require you to slow down your working process a whole lot. For portraits or street photography, you’ll really need to sit in one place and think due to the fact that it focuses manually and you’ll also need to zoom in/magnify areas to ensure that you’ve got a sharp photo. And this is where we really wish that Fujifilm has a focus peaking feature in the X Pro 1 as of the publishing of this story. Either way, for the price one really cannot go wrong. And though we’re not overly enthusiastic about this lens, it still really is a very good purchase for the money.

EXCLUSIVE: SLR Magic 35mm 0.95 lens - FIRST LOOK  | F8 Photography Hong Kong | SLR Magic Hyperprime Lenses | Scoop.it


I was recently approached by SLR Magic man Andrew Chan with regards having a play with one of his new lenses, namely the 35mm 0.95 lens….of course I was keen to have a look at it, especially knowing that nobody else has used it, so I would be getting the first ‘hands on’ usage for stills photography and using the new Fuji XE1 to shoot it. One thing I’ve hear A LOT from people is how you can’t get decent BOKEH (background blur) with these smaller sensor cameras…..well ladies and gentlemen….just look at the image below, shot from about 1.5 metres away…..and then redefine your beliefs….because if thats not bokeh-liscious…then nothing is….

Video interview: SLR Magic lenses for M4/3, Sony E-mount and Leica M, by Matthew Allard

Video interview: SLR Magic lenses for M4/3, Sony E-mount and Leica M, by Matthew Allard | SLR Magic Hyperprime Lenses | Scoop.it

Posted by Matthew Allard on October 28, 2012

 

"This week I met with SLR Magic – the small boutique lens manufacturer based out of Hong Kong. They started off making lens adaptors and “Toy Lenses” that were very popular. Now they have branched out to making more professional lenses, mainly in Micro 4/3rds and Sony E mounts. They are renowned for their range of Hyperprime lenses which are at their best when used wide open. These lenses are made out of high quality steel and are manual focus and aperture only."

THROUGH THE LENS - BACK TO REALITY !

THROUGH THE LENS - BACK TO REALITY ! | SLR Magic Hyperprime Lenses | Scoop.it

My almost wiped out passion for photography awakened when I first saw a videoclip of the X-pro 1 on Youtube. My mind was like a computer at the moment of just having been pressed on  the boot start button. I started to study everything about digital photographing. I even found out that the sensor capturing capability of the Coolpix I own  is only 5% of a fullframe sensor. What a disappointment!  I spare any further description for there are lots of pros out there whose have done that already. At the end I have decided for the X-E1 kit with a 18-55mm zoom lens. I'm alive again!

SLRmagic announced the 35mm f/1.4 and a 23mm f/1.7 manual focusing lenses for the X system | Mirrorless Rumors | SLR Magic Hyperprime Lenses | Scoop.it

 

During Photokina 2012 in Cologne, Germany (September 18-23), SLR Magic will present attractive new CINE products as well as its Toy Lenses, all of the highest technical quality. Among them, will be a new SLR Magic CINE 35mm T1.4 lens in stores by the end of 2012. SLR Magic would like to invite all participants of Photokina fair held in Cologne to visit our stand in Hall 3.1 B059. SLR Magic will present its entire range of camera lenses, cine lenses, spotting scopes, and camera accessories during Photokina.A major attraction is a high-performance mirrorless format cine lens with manual focus. With a focal length of 35mm and aperture of T1.4, this lens joins the family of cine lenses designed for demanding users. The reason why the 35mm T1.4 lens is not in the HyperPrime series is because T1.4 is not the fastest speed we can design for this 35mm lens. Ever since the release of the HyperPrime CINE 12mm T1.6 lens, cinematographers have been requesting for a set of HyperPrime CINE lenses. In addition to our new CINE 35mm T1.4 lens, we will also showcase our 25mm T0.95 (MSRP: US $649) in mFT and 35mm T0.95 (MSRP: US $1,249) in mFT, X-mount and E-mount concept lenses that are based on the optical design of the HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 lens. Due to difficulty to source a particular material to manufacture the HyperPrime 23mm F1.7 for E-mount announced on December 8th 2011 it was discontinued within 3 months of launch. During this time, we have re-designed the lens, increasing image quality across the frame yet keeping the lens size and price similar to the original. The new design also supports mFT and X mount cameras.

All details concerning the optical type and physical size of the lens will be published at a later date. The SLR Magic CINE 35mm T1.4 lens in mFT, X-mount and E-mount (MSRP: US $279) will be introduced for sale in December 2012. The SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm F1.7 (MSRP: US $399) in mFT, X-mount and E-mount will be introduced for sale in February 2013.

Shooting with the new SLR Magic 35mm T0.95 and T1.4 prototype lenses (Panasonic GH2 non-hacked)

Shooting with the new SLR Magic 35mm T0.95 and T1.4 prototype lenses (Panasonic GH2 non-hacked) | SLR Magic Hyperprime Lenses | Scoop.it

Posted by Andrew Reid on September 30, 2012

 

"One of the highlights of Photokina 2012 was meeting up with SLR Magic, the small but nimble optics company based in Hong Kong. They brought out one of the first proper fast wide lenses for Micro Four Thirds (the 12mm F1.6) by listening to demand and acting swiftly. Now they are building high end super-fast primes which are optimised for filmmakers as well as photographers.


The 35mm T0.95 and T1.4 have a silent, stepless aperture ring, minimal breathing, metal construction and a way above average count of iris blades (in double figures) for smoother bokeh when stopped down.


The control of breathing on these lenses seemed (in the few hours I had with the lens) to be impressive. I tried the expensive Canon CN-E 50mm T1.3 cinema lens based on the EF 50mm F1.2L and that breathes! One of the definitions of a cinema lens is that this is under control so your framing doesn’t change whilst racking focus when stopped down, say at T5.6."

Insider interview: Andrew Chan of SLRMagic by Bellamy

Insider interview: Andrew Chan of SLRMagic by Bellamy | SLR Magic Hyperprime Lenses | Scoop.it

Posted by Bellamy on February 18, 2013 • 

 

"While I was in Hong Kong I got the chance to talk to a guy I have wanted to meet for a while. Andrew Chan really is passionate about what he does and I got the chance to learn a little bit about that. I hope you enjoy this interview.

During my recent trip to Hong Kong I was very fortunate to get to sit down with Andrew Chan, the driving force behind SLR Magic. Over a coffee we got to talking about lenses, passion and what makes for a great lens. Andrew didn’t have a great deal of time as he is extremely busy, but he was kind enough to make some time for me.
This interview was face to face for a change, so this is transcribed from the recording I made of our time chatting. It is a little bit more informal that the usual format."
