    Hello folks, long time lurker turned active member here ;)

    I'm interested in picking up one of the 25mm manual primes in the near future, either the SLR Magic Hyperprime 25mm T0.95 or the Voigtlander 25mm F0.95. The SLR Magic is very new to the market and there doesn't seem to be much information based on real world usage out yet.

    My question is this: If you've had experience with the SLR Magic Hyperprimes, how do they compare to the Voigtlanders? Are they even in the same league? Build quality, image quality, etc.

    What are your thoughts on the fast manual primes available to us now?
