SLR Magic APO MicroPrime Cine 50mm T2.1 Reviews

High Quality Product

By David
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-04

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.

This is now by far, one of my favorite 50mm lenses in Canon EOS mount. The colors are natural, there is very little focus breathing, the flaring feels classic but isn't extreme, the picture is detailed but not too sharp and, (the reason you buy an APO design lens) there is virtually no chromatic aberration. This lens is also all metal and well constructed, the iris and focus rings are smooth and have a comfortable 150 degree rotation. I'm looking forward to using this lens on a lot more projects.

Buttery smooth highest quality

These lenses are beyond believable. I bought a 25 and a 50 for my Canon C70. I think they work best when used with the regular adapter than with the .71, but that would definitely be an issue of the Canon adapter and not these lenses. The focused breathing is virtually nonexistent, the colors are accurate and consistent throughout the frame. This is by far the best full-frame cinema lens you'll put your hands on, not only at this price but I believe also at some higher price points. I don't mean to sound cheesy but I simply love the results.

Image Shift while Focusing

By Jon
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2020-12-13

Just got a new set of these lenses, as I shot a pilot on the APO Hyperprimes. Wanted to get the big boys but SLR Magic discontinued the 25mm in that set so I opted for these. I wanted to love these, but there is considerable image shift while focusing near infinity. Also very noticeable in the 85mm. Going to exchange them for new ones and hoping these were just two defects as opposed to their overall build. Will update after swapping.
