– I’ve already posted Steve Huff’s review about the SLR Magic 35mm T1.4 (specs&price). Now, let’s go over to the next one, made by thephoblographer (read here).

Well dampened and easy to turn focus and aperture ring, very good build quality, operation is smooth and easy-going, the image quality is amazing (““this looks like I took it with my Leica M8 and 50mm Zeiss Planar“), some slight softness wide open, very pleasing bokeh…. ok, let the test shots speak from now on! Click here to see them and to read more.

Here is the email that Fujirumors reader Yves received form Sales dept at SLR Magic :
“Dear Yves. We have 3 lenses that can be used on Fuji X mount cameras. The SLR Magic 35mm T1.4 lens in X mount is ready now, and you can order with us.  No adapter is needed. The SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 35mm T0.95 lens is in M mount, only for use via adapter for M to X mount, M to mFT mount, M to E mount.  This lens has APS-H coverage and it does not work on M mount cameras.  This lens will be available around March 2013. The SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm f/1.7 lens in X mount.  This lens will be available by March/April.”

– “If pricing has made you hesitant to enter Fujifilm’s X-Series, the X-E1 might be just the thing to draw you in. And if you’re just looking for a really nice rangefinder-style ILC, you should give the X-E1 a try. We think you’ll like it.” popphoto X-E1 test (Click here)

– Is it to love or to hate? Here is another X-E1 review. “With the X-E1, YOU are the photographer and the artist. There are no Instagram magic, that makes a dull picture exiting. You have to think up what you want to show in the scene you capture, you have to be an artist and a photographer. And that is why I like it so much. I do believe it forces me to be a better photographer.Read it all here.
