SLR Magic MicroPrime Cine 25mm T1.5 Overview

The MFT mount MicroPrime Cine 25mm T1.5 Lens from SLR Magic covers Micro Four Thirds sensors and features a fast aperture, 150° focus rotation, and internal focus mechanism. The short focus throw was incorporated so that when you rotate the focus ring by hand, you'll be able to comfortably adjust it from end to end. The internal focus mechanism of the lens minimizes breathing. Breathing can cause the front of the lens to actually move, in which case your framing might change as you adjust focus. But that's not a problem with this cine lens.

The lens shares many consistent features with the rest of the MicroPrime series in order to allow for an efficient workflow. All the MicroPrimes have color and bokeh consistency between one another. The front diameter is universally 85mm so you can easily move clamp-on matte boxes from one lens to another. The filter thread size is 82mm. The length and weight are the same so that if you use a gimbal, you won't have to recalibrate it if swapping in this lens for one of a different focal length. And the lens gear positions match up. The MicroPrimes also have calibrated witness markings so focus pullers can reliably measure the distance between the focal plane and subject.

Key Features

  • Covers Micro Four Thirds sensors
  • 150° focus rotation
  • Internal focus mechanism; minimized breathing
  • 85mm front diameter
  • 82mm filter thread size
  • Calibrated witness markings
  • 22mm image circle
  • Clickless iris ring
  • Consistent with other MicroPrime lenses in color, bokeh, gear position, and virtually all other features

SLR Magic MicroPrime Cine 25mm T1.5 Reviews

Great Value

This simple but effective lens is well built, with solid construction and glass. The focus and aperture rings turn smoothly and overall this lens gets the job done for the price.

Close focus inaccurate.

By Jon

I did a calibration test of this lens on the Fujifilm XS-10 body and found out that at close focusing with the lens focus scale set at 15 inches, the actual distance from the subject to the film plane icon is 16.25 inches. Another test was done with the subject being 36 inches from the actual film plane and at this distance the lens was the same as the measuring tape. This test was done with the lens set wide open (T 1.5). Conclusion: The lens distance increments on the focal ring is inaccurate at distances of 30 inches and closer, At 36 inched the lens is bang on target so I would assume that 36 inches to infinity should be accurate; I am sure that stopping down the lens by one or two stops will greatly improve the close focusing issue.

I've tried to occasionally short cut my way to quality by purchasing cheaper lenses but in comparison, there is none. The SLR Magic MicroPrime Cine 25mm outperforms the competition.

Softer, greener, & unreliable T-stops.

By David

So I received a 2nd copy of copy of the 25mm, after returning the first copy due to the fact that T2-T4 were a full stop darker than the 35mm and 75mm when set to the same T-stops. T5.6 and T8 were also darker, but by a smaller margin. The second copy while it matched closer to its siblings, was still off, T2-T5.6 are now only 1/3rd of a stop darker than it's siblings. Given that these lenses are rated in T-stops presents a massive problem for multi camera shoots, as you cant rely on the stop marks to trust that the lenses will match in exposure, they will have to be checked and adjusted, which is what a good DP should do anyways, and was how I spotted the problem in the first place. To be clear Wide open is still just as bright as the other lenses in the lineup, but it's stop marks are off. And again these are T-stops! The other issues with the lens are still present, it doesn't match the 35mm or 75mm in color cast. This lens is noticeably greener. It's not unpleasant, and I do kind of like how skin tones render under this cast, as it brings out a healthy pastel yellow color to caucasian skin, but if you are swapping lenses or doing a multicam shoot get a color chart, as there will need to be corrections done in post. The last issue is that this lens is soft, wide open hits the border on usability, which is subjective. For some it may be fine, for others definitely not. BOTTOM LINE: flaws and all I will keep this lens as I do like the characteristics of what it can do and its fast aperture. If you are in the market for an SLR Magic lens, the 35mm is the superior optic in sharpness and color accuracy. For anyone who picks up any SLR magic Lens test the T-stops to make sure they are accurate! I love the weight, flares, colors, and bokeh of the SLR Magic line, but quality control is off so be prepared to send a lens back if a defective lens passed quality control.

Darker, greener, and softer than it's siblings

I picked up the X-Mount versions of the 25mm, the 35mm, and the 75mm to shoot video with on my fuji X-T4 cameras. I had seen the reviews on the lenses so I knew they had character to them, but I was a little surprised at the color and exposure differences from lens to lens. Out of the 3 the 25mm is the one I am least happy with. For starters it is noticeably greener than the 35mm, which is noticeable warmer than the 75mm. So if you do multi camera shoots with these lenses they will not match each other perfectly. It's correctable but it takes time. At wide open the 25mm at T1.5 matches the 35mm at T1.3 fairly well in exposure. But if you stop down to T2 the 25mm is 1/2 to 2/3rds of a stop darker. T2.8 and T4 are about the same, and once you get to T5.6 do they start matching in exposure again. This is profoundly disappointing for lenses from the same manufacturer that marks their glass in T-Stops. If these were F-stops I might be more forgiving. If I split the difference and move the iris on the 25mm somewhere in-between T1.5 and T2 I can get the lenses to match exposure wise, but I would need both cameras side by side to set it, or take a guess and role the dice. Which for video work is not a good thing.

Good enough

I would like to test it more, and would like to update this review as soon as posible, but the lens looks good enough for now, very solid built quality. I don't rate 5 stars because I bought 18mm,25,35 and 50 and the 18 and 50mm had to be returned because they didn't fit my A7sii E mount and had to be returned.

I have this mounted to the Fujifilm XS-10 when doing low light (ambient only) for street seen 4K. It is ok at T1.5 but I will only use this T stop when absolutely necessary otherwise I have it set to T2-2.8. The build quality is perfect and 4K video will render a slightly soft blur in contrast especially on bright light points on chromed metal or polished stainless steel that has a pleasing cinematic look. Love it!

Good quality for the price

New to cinema lenses, but so far I'm very impressed with the quality of this lens. The lens itself is a bit on the heavy side to what I'm used to, but very satisfied with the images produced. Using it with BMPCC 4k.
