Re: My SLR Magic HyperPrime LM 50mm T0.95 Review!

@facewashwas:

As far as I understood your story, you insisted to get a stealth version and as far as I know, the stealth samples were pre production samples. So you base your accusations on a particular sample and extrapolate this to all other copies.

I saw an early prototype that also had a stiff aperture ring (as stiff as the aperture ring of the Noctilux of my friend...) and a more free moving focus ring. I also saw copies where both rings operated as smooth as expected. So there may be differences with early samples due to the hand production. But this does not mean that all copies of this lens made meanwhile and in the future have the same condition than yours.

The black dust that you saw on the mount propably was abrasion of the black coating of the metal lens cap.
