SLR Magic APO MicroPrime Cine 25mm T2.1 Reviews

Loving It So Far

By Maurice

With an a background using photo lenses, this piece of glass is heavy, at 2 lbs, great for smoothing out those micro-jitters on my Pocket 6K and 4K. I used this on a talking head video a like the results. I look forward to using this lens more to experience the characteristics people crave about. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase so much I'm considering purchasing the 85mm.

Great lens for narrative work

This is a beautiful lens. The color is true. It loves skin. Wide-open it blooms, contrast drops, and it looks like you have a Promist filter on. Don't expect anywhere near sharp focus wide open. However, things sharpen up f/2.5-2.8. I bought and 32mm and 50mm, but the 32mm was soft through 3.5 - sent it back. I have yet to receive a replacement. Hopefully, it was a QC problem with that lens. Regarding the 50mm, the box had a crushed corner. So, I sent it back for an exchange.

Pretty satisfied

Far from being an expert but i compared it to some cheaper lens and i can see a difference in the shparness and color rendering. Love it, and its the only affordable cine lens that isnt a Rokinon, so i'm happy.

A nice wide-angle lens

The SLR Magic 25mm MicroPrime is a fantastic lens, it's detailed but not clinically sharp, the flaring has character but isn't distracting, and it's very well built. This lens also displays very little breathing and (of course) has minimal chromatic aberration. If you are in the market for a $1,500, cinema lens in EOS mount, you should seriously consider this one.

High Quality Product

I have both the 25mm and 50mm MicroPrime Cine lenses. Both are excellent manual lenses that work flawlessly on my Canon R5 with RF-EF adapter. I do a lot of product photography and video and to dial in focus is exactly what I need. Sure it is not autofocus, and isn't supposed to be, it is for those that want the ability of fine tuning detail and focus. The body is much higher quality metal than the plastic of the more expensive RF lenses. It is similar to zeiss lenses if you are familiar with those. I always color correct in post but the colors produced from the lenses seem consistent for my uses. The sharpness cannot be matched when combining these lenses with a 45mp sensor for photos and 8k video. I have spent thousands in lenses in the past, but these are perfect for me at a much more reasonable cost than the alternative options.

The lens doesn't match the rest of the APO set!

I bought the full set of these (25, 32, 50 and 85mm) and I'm disappointed that the 25mm does not match the other lenses. It's much greener than the others. As far as I'm concerned this is the first thing a set of lenses should do. MATCH. It's hard to use the set and then tell a client 'oh that one will have to be graded to match' I have the cheaper SLR Magic emount lenses and these all match so really didn't expect this.

Asked by: Juan Alberto
It does not have an interchangeable lens mount. You should be able to use a Follow Focus system on the iris ring though..

The SLR Magic APO MicroPrime Cine 25mm T2.1 Lens (Canon EF) (B&H# SLRMP25EF) is an EF mount lens suitable for use with cameras possessing a Canon EF mount such as the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K (Canon EF/EF-S) (B&H# BL6KPKCAM) and the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro (Canon EF) (B&H# BL6KPKCAMP). It will not work with the 4K versions without an appropriate adapter.
