SLR Magic introduced its new MicroPrime CINE lenses for Sony E-Mount cameras this week at NAB 2018. Out of the gate, we’re getting 4 lenses – 25mm T1.5, 35mm T1.3, 50mm T1.2 and 75mm T1.5. In June, SLR Magic is adding the 18mm T2.9 to the MicroPrime CINE lineup.
The lenses are relatively lightweight (about 1.5lbs) and feature smooth, geared focus and iris rings. They all have an 82mm filter and a 13-blade diaphragm.
“Each lens is balanced, with a similar weight distribution so that recalibration is not required upon switching lenses when using a 3-axis gimbal. Lens gears are built-in with a throw slightly longer than photographic lenses but still manageable when a motorized follow focus is not used. Each lens features an internal focusing mechanism, and comes with a standard 85mm diameter suitable for matte box use.”
The new SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE lenses retail for $800 and will ship in June (with the exception of the 18mm lens due in June). You should be able to find them soon at B&H Photo.
