    New E-Mount (NEX) 23mm/f1.7 lens announced

    Wow! You NEX camera people should be getting happier!

    NEW: THE SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm F1.7
    SLR Magic expands its E-mount lineup with a new wide angle lens

    Hong Kong, China (December 8, 2011) – SLR Magic expands the E-mount lens lineup with the new SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm F1.7 wide angle lens. With this latest addition, the portfolio of lenses for the E-mount system is now comprised of three focal lengths. The world’s fastest interchangeable camera lens with APS-C coverage in this focal length, the SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm F1.7 will be available in January 2012.
    The field of view of this new HyperPrime Lens corresponds to a 35mm lens in 35mm format and this fast wide angle of view opens up many new creative composition opportunities, particularly in the fields of candid, street, and landscape cinematography and photography. A minimum focus distance of 0.15m allows for pleasing defocused backgrounds. Additionally, a fast max aperture of F1.7 makes the SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm F1.7 ideal for available-light photography.
    We place our highest priority in the development of all HyperPrime lenses to fulfill the demands of professional cinematographers and photographers. The design and build of the SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm F1.7 is solid and reliable.
    The SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm F1.7 will be available from authorized SLR Magic dealers by the end of January 2012.

    Should be a fun little lens to play with... Couple with the focus peaking of these cameras, it should be a nice tool to have available... I've seen some reviews of other SLR Magic lenses, and they are quite impressive for size and cost...
