Exclamation SLR Magic Press Release:

I just received this press release from the folks at SLR Magic, reposted here for your information:

>>>

Dear All,

We are now working on lenses for anamorphic and cancelled all RangeFinder coupled lens projects due to too much effort in defending our brand from Leica community attacks. It had been tiring for us and tiring for moderators of many websites. It is hard to develop in a market where users do not want another alternative to Leica lenses and that is understandable. Hopefully when the HyperPrime LM 50mm T0.95 get acceptance as a new third party lens we will consider to continue future RangeFinder coupled lens projects again.

I have mentioned in personal-view today with our decision on RF coupled lenses.

"A lot of damage was done to us when we got attacked by the Leica community by releasing the 50mm T0.95 lens. We cancelled the HyperPrime LM 35mm T0.95 and HyperPrime LM 24mm T1.4 for Leica camera project and went along with the HyperPrime CINE 35mm T0.95 and anamorphics project instead due to lack of user support in the Leica community."

Kind rgds.,
Andrew Chan

Re: SLR Magic Press Release:

To clarify Guy's point -- we only had to lock this thread down because some people seem to believe they can use our forum as their own personal soapbox as a place to defend their position ad-nauseum. Frankly, we are all tired of hearing it and having to deal with the churlish behavior that seems to accompany it, so the thread is locked and NOT open for discussion.

THe point of this thread is to share the above information in a NEUTRAL fashion -- we remain Switzerland on this...

PS: Note to the people involved (and you know who you are), if you try and restart the bashing discussion here even one more time, you will be permanently banned from GetDPI. You have your soapbox on the other forums...
