Really happy with this lens so far. Doesn't seem to distort or fish-eye the edges too much. Love the shallow depth of field and close focus distance!

Well worth the (on-sale) price

I was expecting a lot of issues with this lens considering I got in on sale for a ridiculously low cost, but it's pretty great as a cheap wide-angle prime. Manual controls don't bother me too much when I'm shooting stills, but I have to be a bit more mindful when I'm shooting video - especially since there's no autofocus and the focusing motor on my Ronin doesn't sit tightly enough against any lens for it to be usable. That's really on my rig, though, not on this lens. The rings on mine felt maybe just a skosh tight, and the vignette can feel kind of extreme, but otherwise this lens is pretty solid.

Great lens!

Feels a little heavy but the lens turns smoothly and works like a charm. Also, wonderful job on packaging and shipping!

Love it

I got this lens on sale for around $189 and honestly you couldn't get a better product for the price. Obviously it's not going to be as razor sharp as more expensive lenses, but you won't be disappointed with the picture quality by any means. This was perfect for shooting in the close quarters of my dorm room. I would for sure recommend to anyone looking for a nice budget friendly wide angle!

Bang for your Buck

I got this lens for its on sale price, which is absolutely unbeatable. I was looking to add a nice ultra wide prime to my bag, and this guy hit the nail on the head. I've used to on three different video projects so far, one short film of which it was my main/most used lens. This lens has excellent image quality, everything is very sharp. Other more expensive lenses definitely have that extra crispness in how sharp their images are, but I doubt you'll have any regrets going with the SLR Magic. This is my first lens from this company. I would definitely buy another SLR Magic lens in the future

Fantastic little cine lens

This is a real gem. I had rented the Nikon 18mm f2.8 lens many times, but this third-party lens performs equally well at a quarter the price. Add in the de-clicked aperture and follow focus rings and it's and even better value. The only problem I have is that it's significantly smaller than my Rokinon Cine lenses which means having to adjust the follow focus and gimbal balance a lot when I switch.

Heavy but Solid

If you have Olive Oyle caliber arms you best pass on this one but other than that it's a gem. Yeah it's manual focus and no stabilization but it covers the field nicely when I extend it on the monopod for seagull view perspectives. And the gear ring knurls is something every lens needs to incorporate. Makes setting up in a rig so much cleaner.
