"This was supposed to be a normal comprehensive lens test/review of the new SLR Magic Cine 50mm f/1.1 made with a production unit we received from the manufacturer about 2 weeks ago. After working with the new lens, we've raised our concerns to the manufacturer especially about the softness of the image at the corners of the picture when shooting with a wide open aperture and setting the focus point to infinity."

    The 25/1.8’s barrel design is easily mistaken for a 35 Summicron v1, plus that the logo and box also closely resemble Leica offerings. And it’s called Zonlai – “Chinese Leica” – quite blatantly!

    Wonder when they’d stop this nonsense.

      When people will stop buying them. This lens costs less than $80 in China.

      Most Leica users are not interested in lens design, construction, logos, fonts, etc. They only want a red dot and I don’t see a red dot on Zonlai. So Leica and Zonlai are completely different markets. Case closed.

    Does the 25mm lens have autofocus or manual only.
