Verdict

The SLR Magic Hyperprime LM CINE 50mm T/0.95 is an extreme design and as such it’s hard to find a fair verdict here. It fulfills its design priorities – according to the manufacturer these have been a very high center performance and low vignetting at large apertures plus a smooth bokeh. Keeping this in mind you can certainly create excellent results. However, it is not a lens you want to use for mainstream photography because the border performance is usually weak unless you stop down to at least f/5.6. Lateral CAs are very well controlled and the level of distortion is usually irrelevant. During use we've seen some problems with flare in extreme situations and large aperture settings.

The build quality of the 50mm f/0.95 CINE is superb and as good as offerings from Zeiss or even Leica. The super smooth focus and aperture ring make it a desirable choice for movie makers with a preference for low light and shallow depth-of-field photography. In this scope it makes sense to invest that similar of money. Otherwise you should probably prefer the Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS at 1/10 the costs.
