affordable cine lenses
the 50mm is by far my favorite in the kit but once you go manual focus you'll love it! Nice images and affordable.
Great set of lenses - 75mm e-mount has known issue
I've been shooting with the SLR Magic microprimes and genuinely appreciate the consistent color and image quality across the line. However, the 75mm currently shipping has a known problem with the e-mount on a6000 series cameras and required a replacement e-mount ring from the manufacturer. The replacement was super simple - it took 3 minutes once I remembered the orientation matters - and there are no problems with the lens after the fix. I ended up shooting our trip to Yosemite and was quite happy with the image quality in challenging lighting situations with some lovely flaring and chromatic aberration under T2. In studio lighting, they are sharp across the image (T2.8 or higher) and we've had zero issues matching shots.
I like em!
They're small, the throw is short enough for handheld solo work, the picture is a little soft which is cool!
Great lens, great additional warranty
Beautiful image quality
I recently purchased this set of lenses. Normally, I have reservations regarding third party lens manufacturers, so I took some time to research various forms of reviews, critiques, and sample footage of a variety of brands within the same price range. After ~3 years, I came to the conclusion that SLR Magic's MicroPrime Cine lens kit was the right choice for me. One of the biggest factors beside image quality, is the filter diameter. The consistent 82mm diameter of each lens is a great selling point. For independent filmmakers, like myself, every penny counts, and not having to buy the same filters for each lens is a godsend. Another factor is the smooth, long pull focus ring and accurate focus markers, and the same applies to the aperture rings. Consistency is a big deal for me, and each of these lenses feels the same. Yes, the weights of each lens varies a little, but that is something to be expected. The next consideration was the depth of focus, which is pretty narrow at the closer focal distances, but that is a relatively common factor with these types of cine lenses. The color profile is pretty neutral and consistent with each lens, which I really like. And having T/stops instead of f/stops is nice too. For those who don't know the difference, I like to describe it like this: T=True and f=formulaic. T/stops are preferable because if the manufacturer is honest, then each lens is tested individually for light transmission through the aperture; f/stops are approximations, which is why a variety of photography lenses can have completely to slightly different side-by-side outcomes. Be especially wary of zoom lenses with a constant aperture, if the body extends. The build quality of these lenses feels very sturdy. However, because they are full metal bodies, there is a weight factor to consider, as these will be adding nearly 2 lbs. to your camera system. Overall, I found these lenses to be the perfect compromise regarding image quality and function.
Quality compact primes
Listen, I've been doing my research for awhile now. I've watched videos. Read articles. Break down videos. Read up on reviews from multiple sites before I purchased this. As some buyers may have the need for bigger lenses on bigger camera systems. These fit so well and compact with my Sony FX3. I am blown away by the quality. The size. How easy it is to set up a follow focus kit. Because all these lenses are the same size, length, width. Also the metal build. These lenses feel like tiny tanks. Look out ants! Who is this kit for? Documentary filmmakers who enjoy manual focus. Short films. Music videos. I've done my own tests. I might pick up the whole line up at some point. I'm looking forward to using these more!
Nice set at an affordable price
I'd like to preface my review by saying I have no experience with very expensive cine lenses, obviously why I bought budget lenses. Review: Good solid build quality, very nice feel. The 50mm and 35 mm lenses are great on my Sony FX3. The 12mm and 13mm are okay. The 12mm is APS-C, so you'll need to change the setting on the FX3 for that lens. Personally love have a cine set instead of dealing with Photo lenses. I was afraid I'd have a problem with the manual focus because I have in the past relied on auto focus settings, but have no problems pulling good sharp focus.
robust and nice image
I bought a set of these lenses and I am very happy working with them. Compared to the low price they offer a high quality image.
