I'd love to see some shots taken with this lens.
So would I. Mine will be delivered on tuesday. I'll be posting some pictures myself soon!
From Melbourne, Australia
Most of them were shot at t0.95-1.4
I mounted this lens on Olympus OMD. I also own Panasonic 25mm 1.4.
SLRMagic 25mm t0.95 at large aperture (t0.95 to around 2) shows the "glowing" effect which I think commonly occur on old lenses. My Canon FD 50 1.4 and Super Takumar 50mm 1.4 also have the glowing effect. Meanwhile Pana 25mm 1.4 is very contrasty which is common to all modern lenses and the colours are punchier.
In term of sharpness, it's hard to compare to Panasonic without taking exactly same photo and compare them side by side. I haven't had time to do this. But my initial observation, it captures details very well, it should be quite close to the Pana performance, maybe just slightly softer. For now, take it with a grain of salt.
At 450g, it's a pretty heavy lens and makes it front heavy when it's mounted to almost all m43 camera bodies (GH3 maybe an exception). The focus ring is quite smooth except at the closest focus end, but i think it will smooth out after few usages.
Thanks for posting Albert. The shots look good to me.
Would you be willing to give us a quick run down on your experience with the lens so far? I'd be interested to hear how the optics compare to other lenses too.
Some test shots all at 0.95, too bad jpeg compression makes the out of focus area look less smooth (esp. in the first picture [edit: which also very much depends on the monitor one uses, because on some they do look fine ]).

This lens definitely looks sharper than the Nokton 25 from what I've seen so far, which is hugely impressive for a new company like SLR magic. It really gives you that full frame look on M4/3 Unfortunately the OoF areas look a bit busier than I'd like for full body type shots, but then again the Nokton isn't much better at this.
Very nice choice in beer, not bad photos as well

This lens only can buy at SLR Magic page, what is the price?
Does anyone have an idea of what the F-number is? The T-stop is good to know for exposure, but DOF is determined by the F-stop. Are we talking something like f/.9?
No, I got mine at Adorama. There is a limited time rebate of $150 that is instant when you purchase through adorama for a total of $650. It's $800 from the SLR Magic website, and then you get your rebate after receipt of the lens.
I love the lens so far. Just did two video shoots and some pics as well. The stepless aperture is amazing for video, and I have to say it's amazing how sharp the lens is at the wide open end. Here are a couple of lowlight examples.

Very low light concert situation. Not ideal, but amazing what can be pulled off. It really was incredibly low light.
Its is interesting how their 50mm 0.95 lens was first released and sold for $700 and now they are selling it for $1,100.
I wonder two things. First if the price of this lens will go up in a year or two. The Second is, if this 25mm will produce better images than their 50mm. I suspect it should since the 50 was just a reconfigured C-mount lens designed for one inch sensors originally.
I would love to find someone that has done comparison tests.
By the way , ozmorphasis, Stellar Images.
