Does anyone out there have any of the SLR Magic lenses?
let's see them
wide open on a gx1
Just received mine today. Ordered on Tuesday, shipped from Hong Kong on Thursday and arrived in my office in Sydney, Australia the next day!!!
Very impressed with the build quality but focus ring not as smooth as on my Voigtlander. The "lens hood" step-up ring is a rip off, it is 36 years since I have bought a new lens with a screw-in lens cap (that was a Nikon 28-45mm f/4.5).
Only had a very quick play with it and I am impressed with the sharpness and image quality even wide open. Bokeh is good for a wide angle lens too.
Quick snapshot here...

About the only area where you could criticise the performance of this lens is shooting into the sun or a bright source of light where lens flare and internal reflections are a problem. That said - it is no worse than a complex zoom lens, say for example the Olympus 12-50mm zoom. Vignetting is also high but easy to fix in post processing. Fringing is about average.
Easy to use and easy to focus. Nicely balanced on the Olympus OM-D E-M5.
I have written up a review of the lens here...
