Probably the most interesting news bit from the show I've seen. If it is a reasonable price I will buy one just to play with it.

pendigital: I would warn anyone against buying from SLR Magic. I've been going through a customer service nightmare with them for months now over a defective lens they sent me. Any lens they make is a rebrand but I was led to believe they atleast had good customer service. Now I am going to have to go through the hassle of trying to get my money back from them. Check their return/defective policies very carefully. I wish I had.

Thanks adech for agreeing with me. Funny how so many are so ignorant of how things are done. Atleast with Pentax, Voigtlander, or Nikon you get decent customer service if you get a faulty product.

Last time I checked they had no manafacturing cabability. Everything was made for them by companies like Fujian and Kowa. You could just as easily start your own brand. Most of these manafacturers will brand a lens with anything you like. You want to make a fast "pomoville" brand lens? As long as you can meet the minimum quantity then it's no problem. The only thing that SLR Magic does is market and overcharge. That wouldn't be such an issue if the customer service wasn't so bad for defective items.
