SLR Magic adds Toy lenses for Q, E and Micro Four Thirds mounts

By dpreview staff on Mar 5, 2012 at 01:27 GMT

At the opposite end of the spectrum from its forthcoming 50mm T0.95 lens, SLR Magic has launched three Toy lenses across several mirrorless camera systems. They include a glass-covered 24mm equivalent Pinhole lens for Micro Four Thirds, a 60mm equivalent f/1.4 for the Pentax Q and a 'Bokehmorphic' lens with shaped filters for the Sony E-mount. The 42mm equivalent E-mount lens comes with seven aperture inserts that give differently-shaped bokeh. All three lenses will be available from April 2012.

The Pinhole lens will cost $49.99 while the 11mm f/1.4 for Pentax Q costs $169.99 and the 28mm Bokehmorphic NEX lens costs $125.00. The supplied shaping apertures are: 'Circle, Star, Heart, Anamorphic Ovals, Ninja Star, Diamond, and Flower Petals'

SLR Magic expands its Toy Lens lineup with three more lenses

Olympus E-P2 with SLR Magic Toy Lens Pinhole lens

Hong Kong, China (March 5, 2012)  - SLR Magic introduces three more Toy Lenses.

The SLR Magic x Toy Lens Pinhole lens is the first wide-angle pinhole lens that is compatible with all micro four third mount cameras. The field of view of this Pinhole Lens corresponds to a 24mm pinhole lens in 35mm format. It is the first pinhole lens to offer a protective glass to keep dust and moisture away from the digital sensor.

The SLR Magic x Toy Lens 11mm f/1.4 is a standard focal length lens that is compatible with all Q mount cameras. The field of view corresponds to a 60mm lens in 35mm format. The fast aperture combined with the close minimum focus distance of this lens allows for pleasing shallow depth of field effect and is a joy to use.

The SLR Magic x Toy Lens Bokehmorphic allows for creative bokeh effects. The lens is compatible with all E mount cameras. The field of view corresponds to a 42mm lens in 35mm format. It is great for creative bokeh or light painting for impressionistic photography.

All three Toy Lens models will be available from authorized SLR Magic dealers by April 2012.

Why would anyone bother for the SLR Magic Toy Lens for e-mount when for only $55 more you can get the new Sigma 30/2.8 with AF and much better IQ?

…a 30mm f2.8 has nothing to do with a 11mm f1.4.

And a Pentax Q-mount lens has nothing to do with an e-mount lens.
