    Not a native lens, actually, just a manually adapted generic DSLR lens.

    No, the adapter is simply attached by the manufacturer. This lens comes in many versions, and it is by no means native as in specifically built or designed for X-mount (which is the verbatim subtitle of this forum). It is a DSLR design, and there is no support of the X-mount whatsoever that goes beyond what any adapted lens can offer.

    You could just a well glue an adapter to a legacy Leica lens and market it as a Summarit for X-mount.

    There is far too little hands-on experiences/reviews with this lens. It seems like a decent performer, nicely built and fills a focal length gap. That said, 400$ is a bit steep for me given the questionable re-sale value and lack of reviews.

    Hi all.

    I've had the 23mm lens from SLR Magic for a short time and added some pics on my Facebook page, if anyone cares to view.

    NB: To admin; Here's hoping my link doesn't violate any forum rules!

    Regards, John G
