I got the Fujian brand, not the SLR Magic, so it was cheap. I read a lot about the lense before buying it so I knew the drawbacks and did keep all the subject in the center. This is definitely a "toy/novelty lens". I think part of the reason for the disappointment was that other owners have posted some nice sharp portraits from it, and while I could get those results too, they were the exception and not the norm. The construction is all metal and solid as a rock tho. Again, this is a novelty/toy lens and buyers should not expect sharp portraits.

Did you try with smaller apertures?

Wide open is great for low light portraits, dreamy pics, etc, but not the only way of using this lens.

For it's price you cannot go wrong, imo.

  • wide open:

  • smaller aperture:
