Here’s our review of the SLR Magic anamorphic 35mm, 50mm, and 70mm glass.
After the success of its popular anamorphic lens adapters, SLR Magic has been steadily increasing focus on cine lenses. Due to high demand for anamorphic shooting on lower budgets, SLR Magic came out with a set of three PL-mount 1.33x Cine lenses last year.
I’ve been shooting with the lenses on a variety of projects for the better part of a year. Below, I’ll share the pros and cons of the 35mm T2.4, 50mm T2.8, and 70mm T4.
These lenses have a beautiful bokeh and wonderful mix of softness and sharpness when you hit your focus marks.
Here’s a quick lens test I shot using a combination of all three lenses (shot at 1920×1080 ProRes 422 HQ on Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro):
