  • SLR Magic MicroPrime Cine Lenses

    I believe these lenses were first announced for Sony E-Mount during NAB 2018? I just noticed on B&H's website that SLR Magic is coming out with MFT & X-Mount versions. Would love, love, love to try out these lenses on the P4K ...

      Yes, and 18mm is a nice focal length to have also, gives a classic 35mm field of view on the new Pocket 4K.

        And 12mm is great for S16 sensors. But it is odd that they just screw rear M4/3 mount to S35 lenses. For native M4/3 they could made body smaller in size with more common front filter thread 77mm. Also T2.8 is not too bright...

          Building one lens body for the series saves money!

            Wonder if they will release the full microprime set for mft or make changeable mounts. 18 and up are full frame lenses, so decent future proof assuming the future of digital cinema is mirrorless mounts.

              Yes, that would be nice.

                How well do these match the APO set?

                  I saw one reviewer who thought they cut in very close.

                    Who need Veydras when you can have these.

                      I was at SLR Magic HQ back in November to pick up my 32mm APO in person, and while there Andrew let me try out one of the MicroPrime prototypes on my Pocket 4K (He later posted an Instagram pic here). I asked him that same question (how well would these intercut with the APO series?), and he advised against it. We mounted both my new 32mm APO and the Microprime prototype to a Denz Portable Lens Checker to compare, and the difference in rendering was pretty clear.
                      That isn't to say the MicroPrime's aren't great lenses, just that they aren't in the same level of playground as the APO series. They shouldn't be when you consider the price difference. That said, Andrew did stress that the MicroPrimes do implement a number of things he learned from designing the APO's.
                      Similar to the APO series, they are fantastic lenses for the price point they are at.

                          From some of the tests of the Mike 25mm, it has more purple fringing and a tad more distortion than the Veydra, somit is not an exact clone. You get what you pay for in the end. Personally I would pay the difference for imporved optical performance., and reliability in the lens build.

                            https://www.cinema5d.com/slr-magic-m...lenses-review/

                            ...

                            super soft. Only sharp in the center. Gets better at F5.6
                            PASS.

                            And I thought Rokinon/Samyang was bad.

                            I would love to spend up to 1000 Bucks for a "cheap CINE lens"
                            But those "cine lenses" for 400 Bucks just sucks.

                              This is really strange image look of those SLR Magics. Seems exact like their older not too sharp Cine MFT models. But it is great to have an options. Nothing close to their high end APO HyperPrime family lenses.

                              Hope that Laowa will release more matched MFT lenses. Their 7.5mm model is on the sharp side but same time looks cinematic. Or maybe ZY Optics add wider options like this http://zyoptics.net/product/mitakon-...r-25mm-f-0-95/
