Conclusion:

The SLR Magic 50mm F1.1 Lens is a fun lens to use for photography, but it is probably more directed to video work.

It comes at a great price , $349 on B&H.

Focusing ring and aperture rings and very smooth .

With most lenses of wide apertures some vignetting and sharpness fall off is present, and some smearing in the corners.

The lens keeps nice focus in the middle at all apertures.
