Hi,
I wonder if anyone else who has the SLRMagic 25mm T0.95 MFT has experienced the problems I have.
I bought the lens on sale from B&H for 499 for Christmas and decided to open it early.
First problem:
Turning the focus ring from 0.7 to infinity was tight, jar lid wrap your hand around it tight, the rest
of the turn was thumb and middle finger.
This morning it seems ok, thumb and middle finger smooth with a touch more drag 0.7 to infinity.

Second problem:
I don't think the aperture is working. I took a few picts with my GH3 in manual mode, and with my
BMPCC going from 0.95 to 16 and not seeing any difference. Also with the lens off camera rotated
the aperture ring and didn't see any closing down of the lens.

Anyone else had a similar problem(s)?

thanks

I jumped on the same deal. Mine had what I'd describe as a couple of dry spots in the focus ring but they're gone now. QC seems to be their big issue. I tried 3 different 12mm lenses and each one fit differently on the pocket. I'd send it back for a new one. B&H's return policy is painless within 30 days.

Good Luck

Yeah that is not normal! I had to send back my 17mm and 35mm for a better quality version.

Jim, That is definitely not normal. You should send the lens back for an exchange if it is still within B&H's return policy period.

Hi,
Thanks for the advice. Did an RMA with B&H and got a replacement that works.
thanks
