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

"The feelof turning the focus ring is not smooth- It feels un-lubricated/causing friction. To best describe it, it feels like superfine sandpaper rubbing against each other making noise, YES, I did say noise, it’s loud- especially for a CINE lens."

This statement alone is enough to question the build quality of the lens. Companies have been making helicals for a long time. Portions of the helical grinding against each other is a real issue.
