SLR Magic announced the expansion of their lineup of MicroPrime CINE lenses with the addition of a 21mm T/1.6 and a 50mm T/1.4. Let’s take a closer look at these lightweight lenses for MFT cameras.
SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE 21mm T/1.6 and 50mm T/1.4
The SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE lenses are lightweight and affordable cine lenses. They are available in various lens mounts: Sony E-Mount, X-Mount, and MFT. You can take a look at the review of the X-Mount versions we did earlier this year. To complement the existing lineup of lenses for MFT (Micro Four Thirds) cameras that consist of a 12mm T/2.8, 18mm T/2.8, and 25mm T/1.5, SLR Magic just introduced two new lenses.
In terms of construction, these MicroPrime CINE glasses have a lot in common. The front diameter of these lenses is 85mm for clip-on matte boxes, and they have an 82mm thread front. They are made out of metal, and the focus/aperture rings have standard 0.8 mod/32 pitch gears.
The first one is the MicroPrime CINE 21mm T/1.6, which is equivalent to a 42mm lens (35mm equivalent). The lens design consists of 13 elements in 11 groups. The total weight is 700 grams.
The second one is the SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE 50mm T/1.4, which is a pretty narrow focal length on a Micro Four Thirds sensor, equivalent to a 100mm prime (35mm equivalent). The lens design consists of only six elements in five groups, for a total weight of 630 grams.
Pricing and Availability
These lenses are available now. Both the CINE 21mm T/1.6 and the CINE 50mm T/1.4 retails for $599.00 each.
