    that slr magic looks very tempting, can't be the best quality i know but that is a FL i am looking for and for $100 seems worth a shot, anyone have experience with this lens?

    The SLR Magic is a 1/2" format CCTV lens permanently adapted to m4/3 from C-mount. You can get C-mount 35/1.7 lenses on eBay for US$25-50, plus another US$25+ for a C-4/3 mount adapter. On the plus side, you save money and have a kit for additional C-mount lenses, but on the down side the CCTV lens will need collimation (the SLR Magic is presumably collimated). Collimation isn't hard, but that's up to you.

    I did find it amusing that the linked video screwed up the SLR Magic bokeh test--he turned the aperture ring instead of the focus ring, which like rangefinder lenses is to the front of the lens.
