  • 1Description

Capable of producing toy camera-like imagery with your Micro Four Thirds digital camera, the 26mm f/1.4 Toy Lens from SLR Magic is a fast prime lens that is characterized by its creative handling of focus. With a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 52mm, this normal-length lens is specifically designed to render sharp focus within the center of the image, with a gradual blurred quality and noticeable vignetting towards the edges of the frame. Pairing well with the unique optical qualities of the lens, its physical design can also be customized with colorful aperture and focus ring bands to match your personal style.

Prime standard-length lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 52mm when used on Micro Four Thirds cameras.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also aids in producing shallow depth of field.
Produces a unique toy camera effect where the central portion of the image remains in sharp focus and the edges feature a gradual soft blur.
Strong vignetting helps to maintain direction towards the center of the image frame.
Manual focus design for selective control over shallow depth of field effects.
Both the focus and aperture rings can be customized by replacing the colored bands surrounding the control rings. Two bands of five different colors are included: green, blue, yellow, red, and pink.
Sleek and lightweight form factor weighs just 3.2 oz.

    SLR Magic T-2614MFT reviews

    26mm f/1.4 Toy Lens for Micro Four Thirds is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow! Interesting effect. So...this is not the most versatile lens you could hope to acquire. That said, it's pretty fun. The effect of the defocus on this lens is really pretty unique, the closest thing I have seen to it is my Lomo Petzval 85mm, and this lens costs less than 1/10 the price, weighs much less, and is far more portable, and generally much easier to use (aperture ring vs. water house plates is far more convenient). This is an effect lens to be sure, and the effect is very pronounced. The nature of the bokeh on this thing is legitimately pretty unique, and at the price (I payed < $50 US) it's well worth it if you're looking for something different. The vignette on this thing is crazy, like it goes to a full circle at the extremes, and the extremes are much of the aperture range. I found the images almost unusable wide open, with the contrast and saturation getting pretty washed out, but by f/2.8 (which I have thus far discerned as the optimal performance point for this particular lens), the vignetting is down to a workable level, the sharpness in the center is genuinely impressive, and the color and contrast are actually pretty intense. It's a cool, and fun lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I Expected with a Minor Gotcha! I got this lens to put on my Panasonic GM1 (my pocket camera) to do some experimental photography - street, landscape, maybe even some limited still life. I like the small size coupled with the focal length and maximum aperture. It fits well with my idea of what a pocket camera should be and do. The lens is completely manual but that is no problem for me. Be sure to first turn on the Shoot Without Lens feature for the camera. Then it just feels like shooting with a late 60's - early 70's vintage camera. For exposure I put the GM1 in aperture priority mode, set my aperture manually, and the camera selects the shutter speed. Manual focusing takes some getting used to if you're not familiar with the process, but I am familiar so it's no big deal. Image quality is as good as you can expect for a low cost lens. The central portion of the image resolves plenty of detail even at the widest apertures. At wide apertures the bokeh is definitely unusual, but that's why you're getting the lens, right? If you're expecting $1500 lens IQ and deliciously creamy bokeh, you need to look elsewhere. In case it's not clear, the lens has a threaded screw mount that screws into a provided adapter plate for micro 4/3s. It goes on the camera easily because twisting the lens on only tighten the thread mount to the adapter. To remove is not so easy. There are serrations on opposite sides of the plate edge that allow you to get a grip on the plate. You have to use them to twist the plate because twisting the lens just unscrews it from the plate, or at least it did for me. The plate is thin and gripping the serrations took a little practice. It's still not as easy as gripping the lens and twisting. I did encounter one gotcha! - I could not thread on a 30.5 mm filter or step-up adapter. The threads on both were oblviously too big and I could not mount either one. I think the filter threads on the lens are 30 mm, not 30.5 mm. I'm inclined to believe the filter and adapter were correct because the adapter screwed into the filter with no problem. This loss of function means I can't use the lens with my full spectrum camera which requires various filters to be used. I'm a little disappointed with this situation. All in all I'm satisfied with the lens. I had a pretty good idea what I was getting when I ordered it. I do recommend that you check out various blogs for more information about the lens and example images so you can gauge whether this lens is what you're looking for.
