Product Description

The field of view of SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm f/1.6 ultra wide angle lens corresponds to a 24mm lens in 35mm format. This ultra fast wide angle of view opens up many new creative composition opportunities, particularly in the fields of interior, architectural and landscape cinematography and photography. Additionally, an ultra fast max aperture of F1.6 makes the SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm F1.6 ideal for available-light photography. The design and build of the SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm F1.6 is solid and reliable.

Well built with easy controls.

Combined with relatively wide field of view, I would say the lens is good for interior/architecture type of photos or even night sky photography.

A really great addition to my lens collection and quite frankly the best wide angle for the money. What I love is that it's very macro so you can get some awesome DOF and brokah, but you can also get vitually all of your images in focus as well, so it's become my go to lens for steadicam and also for walking around stuff. I like it SO much more than the lumix 20mm. It has steppless aperatures which is really nice and the focus is good. It does take a bit of getting used to for the controls and it's advisable to get a stepup ring for a UV filter. I put on a 72-77mm stepup ring and a UV. Also some nice options for 77mm faders as well.

There is quite a bit of streaking and lens flares when a light source is in the shot. Seriously the only major drawback I've found. Overall pretty sharp and its a great lens. A fine complement and at a 1.6 it's plenty fast enough for most situaions. I feel that I have a good collection for the GH2 now as I have the 7-14, the 20mm, this lens and I rent the voigtlander 25 and 17mm when needed. I want to own those, but I'll be saving for them.

A great lens... you won't regret it! 5/5 stars....

I read the many reviews on this lens and debated on whether or not I wanted to get it. Finally today I took a chance and took a trip out to Adorama to acquire it (its not like i have a whole lot of options as a panasonic gh2 (micro four thirds system) shooter)... I will be using it mostly for video as i am an independent filmmaker... the lens is great so far... Its totally manual meaning i have to adjust aperture and focus solely through the lens which im pretty accustomed to as a filmmaker... Sorry automatic users... The Gh2 requires that you set the camera to shoot w/o lens... a card is provided that explains how to do so... Also the card describes other things that need to be adjusted in order to properly use the lens... the construction seems pretty solid and THIS LENS HAS SOME WEIGHT TO IT... finally, the only downside that i can think of has nothing to do with the lens itself but more so with the lack of a warranty or even contact info to the manufacturer if anything happens to the lens (Well at least mine didn't come with this stuff)... i hope that this review helped out... Ill be taking test shots with the lens and possibly posting an update in a few months time...

Let me start by noting that this lens is not for everyone. Lack of auto-focus and electronic coupling are deal breakers if all you are interested in are your everyday family or party photos. Having said that, I think SLR Magic offers some interesting creative possibilities. Bokeh looks delicious and is easy to generate, macro shots and depth of field tricks are possible. Combined with relatively wide field of view, I would say the lens is good for interior/architecture type of photos or even night sky photography. I would recommend a camera with in-body image stabilization and focus peaking to maximize the lens potential. Optically it's solid even though not up to par with the very best. On the other hand, this kind of lenses is almost guaranteed to produce certain amount of flare, soft corners and vignetting. Normally, this would be compensated for in camera firmware but in typical shallow depth of field applications this isn't much of an issue anyway. The sharpness is OK - don't confuse shallow depth of field / out of focus areas with lack of sharpness. Overall, I think it's a good value for creative photographers who are willing to make the necessary effort to set up their shots. I'm giving four stars out of five because of: 1) somewhat limited overall usability, 2) awkward metal lens cap, 3) fragile packaging. Other than that I think it's a solid product.

The 12mm T 1.6 is an amazing tool, especially at night. Crazy good wide open or close up! Tad loose on my GH3. The new 35mm T 1.4 fits little tighter-very creative focus-great for streaming light-shadows. I am sold on SLR for movie mode.

Bought this lens for shooting low light scenes and I am impressed with the look. I like the macro focus, it is just what I was looking for, thanks.
