Highlights

1) Simera 35mm f/1.4 lens performs well in comparison to the expensive Leica lens.

2) Simera 35mm f/1.4 is similar in size and specifications to the Leica Sumx.

3) Simera 35mm f/1.4 has a close-focus setting with a minimum focusing distance of 45cm, making it useful for close-up shots.

4) Simera 35mm f/1.4 has a unique vintage-style design that looks good on a Leica camera without trying to imitate it completely.

5) Simera 35mm f/1.4 features an infinity lock similar to the Zeiss lens, but not easy to operate during shooting.

6) Simera 35mm f/1.4 has a hyperfocal distance scale with changing dots, but the holes in the lens could raise concerns about moisture and dust. 

7) Simera 35mm f/1.4 is sharp, although not as sharp as the Zeiss lens, and suffers from subtle chromatic aberration.

8) Simera 35mm f/1.4 offers good performance and a more affordable price($699) compared to the Leica and Zeiss lenses.

 

At the end of the video, Benj Haisch scores Thypoch, Zeiss and Leica considering their sizes, feel, build, sharpness, chromatic aberration, characteristics, and price. Factoring in all elements, Thypoch tops the rank. He thought Thypoch absolutely slays in the price category which makes a big difference in image performance and build quality.
