Sony A7R – full frame T0.95 with the SLR Magic HyperPrime

Both the lenses are Leica M mount and fit the A7R. Both the lenses give comparable results as we’ll see in a moment. But there’s definitely some brand snobbery going on because the Noctilux is regarded as the $11,000 pinnacle of photography and the SLR Magic 50mm T0.95 barely has a whisper to it’s name in the photographic press.

Have a guess which is the better performing lens at F0.95…

Leica Noctilux 50mm F0.95 (Latest version) vs SLR Magic HypePrime 50mm T0.95 at a glance
•Price – $10,000 (Leica) vs $3000 (SLR Magic)
•Centre sharpness (wide open) – higher resolution on the SLR Magic
•Corner sharpness (wide open) – higher resolution on the SLR Magic
•Vignetting (wide open) – furthest corners are darker on the Leica
•Minimum focus – 0.7m on the SLR Magic vs 1.0m on the Leica
•Contrast (wide open) – higher contrast on the Leica
•Purple fringing (wide open) – due to design both have high purple fringing at F0.95 but this can be muted in post using digital correction on raw files

T0.95 with a top rated 36mp full frame sensor should be a killer combo in low light !

I've heard more rumors about the Hyperprime being better then the Noctilux. This test confirms it. Anyway, that combo of the A7r and Hyperprime looks really very cool.

Well does it come in K mount? And can I add clicks to the aperture stops?

Edit: Ive looked at some more SLR Magic lenses. They seem pretty interesting.
