Budget lens manufacturer SLR Magic has added a pair of Micro Four Thirds (MFT) ‘MicroPrime’ lenses to its cinema lineup: the MicroPrime CINE 21mm T1.6 and the MicroPrime CINE 50mm T1.4.

The lenses, designed specifically with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and Z Cam E2 in mind, feature full manual control, an 82mm front filter thread, an 85mm front filter diameter for matte boxes and are both geared with 0.8 Mod gears.

The MicroPrime CINE 21mm T1.6 is constructed of 13 elements in 11 groups and weighs 700g (1.57lbs), while the MicroPrime CINE 50mm T1.4 is constructed of 6 elements in 5 groups with a weight of 630g (1.39lbs). The lenses, which will retail for $599 a piece at authorized retailers, round out SLR’s MFT lineup alongside the 12mm T2.8 and 18mm T2.8.

SLR MAGIC expands their portfolio at IBC 2019 with additional focal lengths in MFT mount for MicroPrimes – 21mm T1.6 & 50mm T1.4

Hong Kong (13 September 2019) — Following the success of SLR Magic’s venture into affordable yet robust and high-quality cinema and photo lenses, we are pleased to announce new editions to our product range. Based on popular demand and responding to our users, we are now offering a selection of new lenses in the MFT-mount

Given the extreme popularity of our cine lenses in the E-mount range, our engineers and design team logically progressed into the development of extending mounting options.

Taking from our successful formula along with our previous offerings, SLR Magic have now produced 2 additional lengths given the popularity of Blackmagic’s Pocket 4k camera and the Z Cam E2.

Both lenses all feature full manual control, have an 82mm thread front, an 85mm front diameter for clamp-on matte box, are all 0.8 Mod geared and are almost identical in form factor and weight.

A 21mm and 50mm are now added to the MicroPrime range. With a new design, these 2 new focal lengths will now round out the existing range and provide more choice and versatility to all Micro Prime shooters. The range for MFT will now include 12mm T2.8, 18mm T2.8, 21mm T1.6, 25mm T1.5, 50mm T1.4.

SLR Magic has been synonymous with sharp images wide open with smooth roll-off, beautiful bokeh edge to edge and is fast becoming the lens of choice rather than an alternative for the Cine and Photo industry.
