SLR Magic 8mm Review compared to the Lumix 7-14mm F4 zoom
1) This is not a professional lens review. I don’t own professional testing gear, or use professional testing techniques. This is intended to test the new SLR Magic 8mm lens and see if it can be used as a pocketable extreme wide angle lens.
2) This is not a fair review. I am comparing this lens against the Panasonic Lumix 7-14mm lens. The Panasonic lens has electronic contacts and the images have some corrections made in the camera. All images of the SLR Magic have no image corrections applied. And the Panasonic is over twice the price.
Okay, that aside, I think it’s an interesting comparison. The Panasonic is a well-respected micro four thirds lens. Can the SLR Magic lens keep up?
