    This is the response I got from SLr Magic:

    To better assist you, please send us a copy of the purchase invoice for the two lenses.

    To check the situation, we need you to send both lenses to our lens tech to check.

    Alternatively you can send back the lens to the shop within the exchange period to change another copy.
    I’m going to send back the 18mm to B&H when I’m able for a new copy and see if it has the same result. If it does then I’ll send them over to their lens tech to see what’s up.

    Rick has an issue with one of his SLR APO lens, and SLR Magic took care of it very quickly.
    Cheers

    Just a quick update. I got a new copy of the 18mm with the same results, so I returned the 12mm for a new copy and finally got it yesterday after shipping delays. They both perform exactly as the first copies I got. The 12mm exposes 2/3rds of a stop more than the 18mm at all apertures.

    I’m contacting SLR Magic again to see what they say now that I’ve swapped both lenses as they said to do. All I really want is a confirmation from them that this is normal behavior from these lenses.

    Darren, sounds like SLR is using a mathematically derived f/, labeled as a T-Stop, rather than a true measured T-stop, which would increase the cost, as each lens would need to be measured and a custom engraved T-stop ring made. This is the difference between true Cine lenses and lower cost semi-cine lenses, like the Micro Prime and the Veydra Mini Primes.

    As ,one as you know the difference, and can compensate it, you are good to go.
    Cheers
