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

The build quality is the issue with the Hyperprime.

After 50 years, the Canon 50/0.95 has held together quite well and continues to work flawlessly on the camera for which it was designed.

The Machining of the Hyperprime appears to be very poor based on this and other reviews. The machining of the 50 year old Canon has held together for 1/2 century. The question is how long can the Hyperprime hold up with such poor machining and build practices and what steps are being taken to correct the mechanical design.
