SLR Magic Anamorphot Cine 35mm T2.4 Overview

Known for both its cine-style spherical lenses and anamorphic adapters, SLR Magic has combined the two to create an anamorphic lens. The 35mm 2x Anamorphot-CINE Lens delivers a complete, one piece, anamorphic lens with a maximum aperture of T2.4. 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.

This 35mm lens produces a 2.66:1 aspect ratio on Four Thirds sensors. This allows you to get a greater widescreen effect while maximizing your sensors resolution.
Geared focus and iris rings allow use follow focus unit or lens motor to pull your focus or iris
The 82mm threaded front allows you to mount filters or diopters directly to the front of the lens. Diopters, although not included, can be used to change the focus range of the lens, allowing you to focus closer than the normal close focus of the lens. Please note that using a diopter will also affect the far focus distance.

SLR Magic Anamorphot Cine 35mm T2.4 Reviews

Works well but not intuitive

By Jason

The lens has amazing flares and works well after using the in-body anamorphic de-squeeze on my blackmagic 6k EF. As known from reading reviews online, the lens does have a lot of distortion on the edges and is soft when used with larger aperture settings. Even then, it's not as sharp/clean looking as a regular budget priced 35mm (such as the sigma ART). However, you buy this lens for the anamorphic look and it is by far cheaper than the next-cheapest option; in that sense, it delivers. The PL to EF adapter unit is surprisingly not intuitive in how it attaches. There were no instructions anywhere in the box or online, and it actually took me a long time to figure out which part of the adapter unscrews (and in which direction) in order to attach it to the lens. It sort of rotates within itself in a way that was unexpected. You also have to remove the ring from the back of the lens itself which also wasn't indicated. It sounds silly but as someone with a PhD in engineering, unable to figure it out for at least an hour or two with lots of struggling and even using grips and a lot of strength trying to attach the wrong way, I feel like they should have at least provided some basic diagram showing a quick overview of needing to remove the ring from the back of the lens and how to twist the adapter. If you attach it to your camera tightly and then forget which way it unscrews, you will struggle to also remove it, because it's tight either way and you don't know whether it's going the right direction and you have to twist harder, vs. going the wrong way and continue tightening it. The adapter is well-built though and allows use of the PL mount anamorphic lens with my blackmagic 6k in EF mount. I do think the added price for the adapter is pretty high; you can get an okay lens for the price of the adapter, but then again, buying this plus the anamorphot lens together is still a lot cheaper than any other anamorphic for EF mount.

Epic film making on a shoestring budget.

Do you want that epic Panavision look without the epic Panavision prices? This lens is for you! There is minimal chromatic aberration when the F stop is wide open, slightly closing it will clear it right up. The focus is spot on with minimal horizontal softness after the de-squeez. Every shot looks like an epic movie. You cant go wrong with this lens.

question

Since the crop factor has changed for 4k recording on GH5 cameras, now covering all of the frame how does this lens perform ?
Asked by: OZGUR DEVRIM
From the beginning the SLR Magic 35mm T2.4 2x Anamorphot-CINE Lens (MFT Mount) has covered the the full MFT sensor so no problem there. Now with the GH5, instead of a 2.3 crop you will get the normal MFT 2x crop (from a Full Frame sensor). The image will have a slightly wider Field of View (FOV).

It would not. This is an MFT mount lens and the X-T3 uses a different X mount.

question

What are the mounting options for this lens? Is there a foot support? It is very heavy at over 3 pounds.
Asked by: Tracy W.
On the bottom of the lens is a 1/4 thread for lens support. You can use a 15mm LWS such as the Zacuto Recoil or Wooden Camera Quick Cage for DSLR. Then on the rods your could use this support. Zacuto 1/4 20 Lens Support B&H # ZAZ14LS1. In a pinch however you can handhold it. In this situation, the camera mounts to the lens so if you hold the lens, no particular strain on the lens mount.

question

What field of view does this have vertically? Is the vertical field of view equivalent to 35 mm full frame or is it equivalent to a 35 mm m4/3?
Asked by: Steven H.
This anamorphic lens creates the same vertical field of view as a spherical lens of the same length. However, your result will vary do to the shape of the sensor being different from anamorphic mode or flat.

question

how would this lens work on a smaller sensor such as a super16 - 12.48 x 7.02 mm sensor size ?
Asked by: Rick l.
If the lens mount and the flange depth are correct, then this lens will cover a Super16 sensor and focus without issue. I would assume you are thinking of the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera and are wondering what this lens would actually look like on it. With anamorphic, in order to maintain perspective, the rule of thumb is to 2X the focal length for the focal length you would normally use. In Super16, the Rule Of Thumb (ROT) with regular lenses: wide is 12mm, normal is 25mm and telephoto is 50mm. When shooting in anamorphic, you would then consider 25mm the wide, 50mm the normal and 100mm the telephoto. With this 35mm anamorphic lens, you would be getting a moderate wide perspective in the frame. This of course is not the same thing as the wide aspect ratio you are shooting in. (Which is the whole point of anamorphic.)

question

Can you mount this lens to the ursa mini ef using a mtf to ef converter?
Asked by: Joe M.
I'm afraid not. We are not aware of an adapter that will allow you to put MFT lenses on an EF camera.

Does 35mm shows vignetting in frame,if I use in my Gh5 and Gh5s body?

This lens is designed for use with an MFT mount camera. It will not vignette on the GH5 or GH5S.
