Known for both its cine-style spherical lenses and anamorphic adapters, SLR Magic has combined the two to create an anamorphic lens. The 50mm 2x Anamorphot-CINE Lens delivers a complete, one piece, anamorphic lens with a maximum aperture of T2.8. The lens provides a 2.35:1 aspect ratio to your image when used with your 16:9 sensor. Suitable for use with cameras with a Four Thirds sensor, the anamorphic lens allows you record an image with a wider aspect ratio than your sensor's native aspect ratio without cropping your image, which maximizes the resolution of your image.
The lens features a 3.5' minimum focus distance and has geared focus and iris rings. It is worth pointing out that the front of the lens rotates as you focus, which may affect your choice of matte box. The 82mm front filter thread allows you to screw in filters, such as diopters to shorten the 3.5' minimum focus distance. Included with the lens is a hard case for storage and transport.
