SLR Magic Hyperprime 35 T0.95 preview
Dec 31, 2012

I have to admit I'm more than a little excited about this lens. ItĀ isn't out yet, but it is supposed to be available as soon as February for $1,350. There are a few reviews / previews out there... Here are the two most informative IMHO.

3DKraft's comparison to a great 50 f1.4 on the Nikon D800E is amazing to me... It makes me feel a lot happier with the capabilities of my crop sensor NEX-7 and (almost) keeps me from dreaming about a full frame NEX. (Don't get me wrong, I love my NEX-7 but I'm a hopeless gear head always looking to see what's coming out next.)

So, at $1,350 and manual focus only is anyone else interested in this lens? I want to like their 50 f0.95, but reviews (including a good one by Matthew Durr on this forum just yesterday) aren't as positive.
