    From what I hear, the lens will be priced right around $3k.

    Agree with Lloyd, and glad someone put this lens through it's low-light paces. Good job Ashwin.

    I'm really starting to dig this lens. Is it September yet?

    Great job Ashwin! Many thanks for sharing this information with us. The lens looks very interesting indeed. I look forward to trying it out myself.

    September? Well, I guess it's close enough for Government Work.

    Seriously though, this is a lens to look forward to shooting. It looks to have more "mojo" too than the Leica Noct that I owned. Wide aperture and mojo? What's not to love?

    I'm not particularly impressed by the background defocus character - the bright edges make for a busy blur. Stepped down to 1.4 it will be fine, but then what's the point with such an extreme design?

    Yet another variation/sample is tested here (on cameras other than Leica):

    Fullsize comparison SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 - Leica Noctilux 50/0.95 ASPH et al

    What makes this variant interesting is that, apparently, it is faster at T/0.95!

    I wonder which variants will be eventually marketed with a set of a photos to go with each variant. These SLR magic 50/0.95s are already being sold on eBay and other places- no idea what they are.

    EDIT: The link gives a link to SLR magic site and there all the details (price, etc) are listed.

    The bokeh looks more rough compared to the Noctilux. The Slr Magic seems to have a bit of barrel distortion too which I don't like.

    My own usage and the comparisons I have seen suggest otherwise.

    I would rate the SLR Magic as having superior bokeh to either the Noct 0.95 or the 50mm 'lux.

    I should be reviewing this lens fully, hopefully soon. It's up to SLR Magic at this point.

    It certainly looks like a promising lens.

    Just received my copy today, weathers crap and working next few days but will post a few pictures and thoughts in the coming days if people are interested.

    If there's any specific pictures people want to see just let me know.

    Also anyone who lives in Sydney and interested in checking out the lens and having a go feel free to PM me and can maybe organise something.

    I am interested to see pictures in light other than sunlight and without any ND filters. Lowlight/low contrast light images please.

    They're going to open up pre-order again on Friday so if you're interested, look alive. They told me they're pre-ordering in groups of 10. This group is for delivery in late July-early August. At least one of those is already spoken for.
