Thoughts on the SLR Magic Hyperprime 10mm T2.1 and the 77mm SLR MAGIC variable ND filter:
SLR Magic Hyperprime 10mm T2.1
Construction of the lens is very good. The lens is compact, made of metal and feels very solid, but is quite heavy (420g) as a consequence (in fact it’s the heavier lens I’ve used with my GH4). The aperture ring is clickless and smooth, so it's easy to quickly and silently change the aperture even when filming. The focus ring is also very smooth with distance markers which can be quite useful. Paired with the GH4 and its focus peaking feature, I found focusing was very easy.
One of the nice feature of the lens is its very close minimal focus distance (0,2m) which combined with its T2.1 aperture can produce some nice bokeh shots even at 10mm.
In my opinion, image quality is good but I’ll let you judge by yourself in the video. If you’re looking for the sharpest lens for your micro 4/3 camera, this may not be the right one. What I mean is that it is sharp (it’s at its sharpest settings around T4.0-T5.6 and mainly in the center of the frame, as the edges are a bit soft) but not as sharp as a Panasonic lens for example. But it is designed as a cine lens and its softer image feels more like advantage to me to get a less pronounced video look. As for color rendition, I did not notice anything special while shooting with this lens. Distortion, which could be a problem with a wide angle lens, did not come up as one at all with the SLR MAGIC 10mm T2.1.
77mm SLR Magic variable ND filter
The 77mm SLR Magic variable ND filter is quite a nice surprise! I use variable ND filters for quite some years now, and this one definitely belongs to the best I’ve used so far: no specific color cast noticed while using it, and moreover nearly no black cross even when used at its maximum setting on the 10mm lens. Construction seems very solid, and it is delivered in a box with an adapted lens cap.
