SLR Magic APO MicroPrime Cine 85mm T2.1 Reviews

Don't Sleep on SLR MAGIC for you Komodo

By Robert

As with my review of their APO Microprime 32mm T2.1 (my favorite), These lenses are incredible for their price and quality. The image is crisp, but not overly sharp, bokeh is beautiful, I love how blues and reds are rendered, good contrast... right kind of character, weight and build I needed with my Komodo.

A fantastic lens for a low price

This is one of the best lenses I've ever owned at this price point; solid all-metal construction, nicely dampened rings, etched and filled markings, very little breathing, nice edge to edge sharpness, classic but not aggressive flaring, neutral colors, etc. Functionally, this is a great lens for single operators and will probably last for decades if properly cared for. Aesthetically, it produces detailed but not overly sharp images that remind me of much more expensive cinema lenses. IMO, this is a great choice for narrative and cinema style documentary. I'm looking forward to owning the entire set.

Great lens!

I got this lens as part of SLR Magic APO MicroPrime set. The lenses comes in native EF mount making it a perfect match for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 6K. The lenses covers full frame and they offer a good balance between modern sharp clinical look and vintage ones. They also have a lovely rounded creamy bokeh.

Lovely lens

85mm is always the go to for closeups of people and this one is beautiful and great for the price. Avoid the 25mm as you'll be disappointed that it doesn't match the rest.

I never thought I needed an 85mm

I never thought I needed an 85mm, but am really please with this lens for CUs. It renders the face wonderfully and the signature look of this lens matches very closely to cine primes 10x what I paid. I am sure this lens will someday be a collector's item.

At this time we do not have a set which features all 4 of the lenses. They need to be purchased individually. 25mm - https://bhpho.to/2VQdgKE 32mm - https://bhpho.to/2KoS9tt 50mm - https://bhpho.to/3eI0Ahv 85mm - https://bhpho.to/3avVzFi
