  • 1Description

The SLR Magic Cine 50mm f/1.1 Lens for Sony E-Mount supports cine-style shooting on Sony E-Mount cameras. It weighs in at less than a pound and covers full-frame sensors with a fast f/1.1 maximum aperture for shallow depth of field. It features geared focus and aperture rings, a clickless iris that allows smooth aperture pulls, and a 13 bladed Iris for a rounded aperture and pleasing Bokeh.

The lens is suitable for portrait, interiors, architectural, and landscape cinematography and photography. The front of the lens does not rotate as you focus the lens; this allows you to use optional polarizing filters, or accessories such as clip-on matte boxes. It incorporates a 52mm filter thread diameter for using a variety of readily available optional lens accessories.

The lens covers full-frame sensors with a 50mm focal length.
The clickless iris allows you to smoothly adjust your exposure during the shot.
Built-in iris and focus gears follow industry standards, allowing you to work with optional follow focus units and lens gear motors.

    SLR Magic Cine reviews

    Cine 50mm f/1.1 Lens for Sony E-Mount is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial Observations So far so GREAT! The SLR 50mm 1.1 is blazing fast. I compared it to my own eyes for a quick out of the box test. I can see in the dark! I shoot with a Sony FS7 (Super 35). The combination of this lens on the FS7 allows me to see more with the camera than I can with my own eyes!! The lens looks and feels much, much more solid and valuble than an inexpensive lens should. I used it with a Tilta T-03 follow focus too and it's pretty easy to use. Love the small size compared to ALL other cine lenses. It's even tiny compared to my Veydra 25m and Veydra 35mm. Can't wait to use it mor enad report again soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cine lens for the price! When first reading about this lens I was scared to buy it. Thinking that it would be a bad lens... I was proved wrong. Tested this out while working on a show for Discovery Channel and couldn't believe how much it improved my sony a7sii under low-light. Granted even during the day its a beautiful lens and you can't find another lens this fast for the price. I would recommend anyone with the a7 series to buy this lens. Its my new favorite lens in my kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am utterly obsessed with this lens I use this lens with my a7s and can't speak highly enough of it. I used it to shoot a short film and it's my primary photography lens. Effortless pictures that capture the essence of the moment utilizing its incredibly shallow depth of field. We recently had a baby and I've taken an absurdly excessive amount of pictures with this lens. All of the items in this gallery are not taken with this lens, but you'll immediately know which ones were:

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply an awesome lens for the Sony E-Mount This is now my primary lens. If I have to have one for taking candid shots of social events, this is it. It weighs a ton, all that glass and it feels tight. No slop so far. While no clear edge to edge at F-1.1 (fully open), I crop the majority of my shots anyway and the dof is shallow anyway. This baby swallows light like a fish and the aperture ring is smooth, but a little slow. For $, this is money well spent. Almost bought the Lens baby Velvet 56 to do the same thing, but I have no regrets. I give this only 4 stars because I wish it was AF for my Sony mirror-less. I haven't even used it for video yet (one of its intended uses), so I will have to re-review it soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sony lens I love this lens. It's super fast and allows me to take full advantage of shallow depth of field. Sharp and with reasonable amounts of vignetting wide open. I would recommend this to anyone who has a Sony a7 series camera that want a fast prime with cine-style function. The gear on focus and aperture are a bit stiff. Also because of it's compact size, you might experience difficulty rigging a fallow-focus because the lens aperture gears sit so close to the body mount. I found that you can attach a rail system on the top of whatever your rig is and go in from there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and affordable I am undoubtedly more photographer than cinematographer. I will never use a follow focus or even press the video button. The solid, manual maneuverability and circular apature have made using this lens on my a7rii highly enjoyable. This lens has character and bokeh for days. Im looking forward to seeing new products from slr magic in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brings a velvet quality to the image I've had the SLR Magic Cine 50mm on my Sony A7II since December 2016 and I've taken a number of wonderful shots with it. I use this lens for portrait shots in which its supposed weakness -- the lack of sharpness at wide apertures -- lends a soft, creamy tone to the subject. Generally, it's great for subject that don't hold up well under sharp contrast and when detail isn't important. Flower photography, for example, or lifestyle images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty awesome! The optical quality is surprisingly great for the price. The sharpness in the corners at 1.1 is so much better than I expected. The contrast is excellent, it might have a bluer tone overall (purely a guess) which pairs well with the A7s tendency to lean warm with skin tones. Can't be happier with this purchase. The drawbacks are the focus throw from 8ft to Infiniti is quick. No different from a dslr lens. Sucks for a cinema lens. So the ideal scenario for this lens is portraits for stills, interviews and some detailed broll for video. I'm sure it can be extended to do other things easily but this is how I plan on using it. I hope SLR Magic comes out with a 20mm or 135mm in this price and fstop range. I would pick up those in a hurry.
