The SLR Magic 50mm f/.95 HyperPrime for Sony E-mount

The SLR Magic 50mm f/0.95 Hyperprime is a super-fast, manual-focus lens for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. The f/0.95 aperture, which allows for an extremely shallow depth-of-field, in combination with the 75mm-equivalent focal length makes for a great short portrait-length lens.

The lens features a stepless aperture ring with a locking screw to lock your chosen aperture in place. The manual focus ring is very smooth with a nice throw, which will work wonderfully for video work as well as still photography.

Tim's Take

This is a pretty fun lens to play around with. The f/0.95 aperture gives very nice background separation with a creamy bokeh, but don't expect corner sharpness with this guy. It takes stopping down to f/11 to get even remotely sharp corners, which is a silly thing to do with a f/0.95 lens. You get decent center sharpness at f/0.95, but stopping down to f/1.4 will sharpen it up quite nicely if that's your aim. One suggestion when shooting with this lens is to use the locking screw on the aperture ring. I noticed several times while manually focusing that I had accidentally turned the aperture ring as well. This can easily be fixed by using the locking screw. If there is one downside to this lens, it is the somewhat low-contrast images. While you can adjust contrast levels in post to a reasonable degree, it would be nice if it was already there.
