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

I am sorry for speaking out of turn, but the Summilux and the Hyperprime are completely different beasts.

If you don't need F/0.95, there is not reason to get the Hyperprime. It's massive and heavy, it's not going to feel as good as the Summilux and it's not going to beat it in terms of image quality (though I suspect it comes close).

The Hyperprime is more than a stop faster, this is the reason people get it - for low light shooting, for razor-thin depth of field, for bokeh. And it does surprisingly well in these departments - just look at the samples in this thread and the links.

As for build quality, I think we should be careful not to jump to conclusions. My Cine version certainly feels very solid and the mechanics are acceptable. There is also every indication that this company is serious and will stand behind their products.
