SLR Magic MicroPrime Cine 18mm T2.8 Overview

Choosing a smaller size over bulk and weight, the SLR Magic MicroPrime Cine 18mm T2.8 Lens covers Super 35 sensors and features a Fuji X mount. Suitable for 4K origination, each lens in the MicroPrime Cine series features similar size and weight with consistent lens gear positions for rapid lens changes and easier rebalancing when changing lenses on a gimbal.

The lens provides a pleasing bokeh with natural-looking out-of-focus highlights. The lens has an internal focus design so the front of the lens doesn't rotate when focusing, and it has an 82mm filter thread for compatibility with a wide number of filter options.

Each lens in the MicroPrime Cine series features similar balance characteristics, minimizing recalibration when switching lenses while your camera is on a gimbal.
Internal focus mechanism minimizes breathing and prevents the front of the lens from rotating while pulling focus.
An 82mm front filter thread enables mounting filters directly to the lens without using a matte box.

SLR Magic MicroPrime Cine 18mm T2.8 Reviews

GREAT 18mm option for the FX6

By Alexander
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-30

I was a bit worried from reading other reviews about vignetting on a full frame e-mount. However I'm very impressed with the build quality of this lense. On my FX6 I'm not seeing any horrible vignetting wide open at 2.8. Sharp as well. And while I have not had much time to test it doesn't appear to exhibit too much Chromatic aberration. Especially when looking at YouTube reviews and comparing to the other larger focal lengths in this SLR Magic MicroPrime series which have pretty noticeable CA. Compared side by side with a 20mm Samyang Cine Prime. I'd prefer the quality and optics out of the SLR Magic. It's a winner.

lens stucked on the mount of my camera

So I bought 4 of these SLR magic microprime lenses and the 18mm got stuck on the mount. It doesn't even make 1/100 of the rotation turn to make the click sound when a lens is correctly mounted, it barely moves and makes this lens is unusable. The 50mm had problems too but at least completes the rotation to make the click sound, still makes me wonder the quality of these lenses.

Great

Incredible lens, at T2.8 it has vignetting but nothing that can be fixed. Very sharp and excellent construction

good lens

I was very impressed with the very close focal distance. Nice cinematic look although it does have heavy vignetting

Vignetting so bad

Can’t justify using or keeping this lens due to vignetting deep into my images on an A7Sii. Will be returning. It seems you just can’t get a budget lens this wide without major sacrifices.

Nice

Great quality for the price, just need a little more sharpness.

Compact and ideal coverage FF

I bought this lens as an entry point into a full prime suite for use on S35 and FF bodies. Immediately I liked the build quality and the just right amount of focus rotation on the barrel, ideal for single operators or for using a focus motor. My only issue was pairing this lens with the Viltrox Zcam E2 E-mount adapter. The fit is very stiff but if you read my review over there you'll find out how I got it to work. TL:DR though. All in all I'm very pleased with the character of the lens, the slight vignetting in the corners is ok, as most of this is cropped out in 16:9, 4:3, 1:1, 2.41:1 framing and consider windowed modes for high frame rate and I'm more than happy with the coverage. On Full frame, like a Sony A7 series, you might enjoy the rectilinear capture of this lens; perfect for fashion and landscapes. The fit on an A7 body though - my absolute favorite of any lens, really feels at home on an A7rIII. Based on this test lens I'm going to order the rest of the set (15, 25, 35, 50 & 75)!

solid!

What is the minimum focusing distance of this lens?
Asked by: Brian
SLR Magic does not list a minimum focusing distance for this lens. However they do list a Closest Focusing Distance of 0.66' / 0.2m for other models of 18mm lenses that they have. It should be in the same range with this model as well.

Could this cover the s35 sensor of the z cam s6 w/ MFT mount?
Asked by: TimeKeeper
No, it will not. Although this will mount on the MFT mount, it will only cover an MFT sensor. It would be suited for a Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema 4K.

Asked by: Luis
Yes you can use this lens with that matte box. That matte box offers 15mm rod support, you would just need a product like the IndiPro baseplate to use it. https://bhpho.to/2WzppUi
