The popular lens company is expanding its APO MicroPrime Cine Lenses with a PL mount option.
SLR Magic is a favorite among no film school and indie shooters because it offers affordable lens options that range from premium to anamorphic, covering a variety of sensor sizes and camera mounts. The APO MicroPrime cine lenses are available in four different focal lengths (25, 32, 50, 85 mm) with a fast T2.1 aperture.
The series has the same optical properties over every focal length and can easily cover full image sensors and image circles up to 46 mm. Better still, the APO MicroPrime cine lenses can resolve 8K resolution, making them a solid choice for Canon EOS R5 Protect. When adding accessories, SLR Magic made sure to style the lenses uniformly with an 82mm filter thread, standard 0.8m gears, and a decent focus of 150 °.
The additional PL mount makes the manual lenses a little more cinema-friendly and can still be adapted to different camera bodies, including the Sony E, Canon R or L mounts that can be found on Panasonic, Sigma and Leica cameras.
Although SLR Magic made the announcement through social media, we cannot find exact prices or when they will be available. The company’s APO HyperPrime cine lenses are currently available in PL mounts. We therefore assume that the price for the PL version for the MicroPrime Cine models will not change.
