Steve Huff has many articles about this lens. Here's one - there are more in the links at the bottom and that is not an exhaustive list.

Yeah, the micro-4/3 and E-mount lenses are different; different design, different coverage, etc. They go for $1050.


Yes, this T0.95 lens is different from those f/0.95 lenses. And there is a rumor that SLR Magic is planning to bring this design to MFT and NEX too - a 25mm version for MFT and a 35mm for NEX.

The images of that 25mm T0.95 (pre-production) don't impress me yet:

Am I missing other samples there than those chart shots? The Nokton is not even focused on the chart wide open, so that comparison is rather meaningless. Other than that, there seem to be little difference between them. My main concern is if the SLR Magic will be as well built as the Voigtlander, given that I expect its price to be similar. It's going to be a tough sell I think - they should have better worked on a longer focal, for portraiture (45/0.95). The MFT platform already has two excellent 25mm primes.

Yes, I am thinking of centre performance. The bokeh on the Xenon becomes more "normal" when stopped down. I thinking not all pics above are wide open. The Xenon is great at CA and contrast when the light is gentle but suffers from veiling glare.

The purpose of that lens IS to be shot wide open Wink
Steve Huff uses ND filters in daylight.
Great lens => Great price.
(Perhaps, one day...)

Those are the only samples, but it makes you think when you know they are from SLR Magic themselves.
I'm not a fan of releasing close to exactly the same lenses.
