When buying this lens, is it a true 35mm, no crop factor?
Asked by: Sheri
This lens is 35mm and will always be a 35mm. It is the size of the sensor that determines the Field of View (FOV) of the image. This lens is meant for Super35 sensors. Since Super35/APS-C sensors are smaller than full frame, it is the sensor that "crops" the any lens's image circle to that size. Since this lens's image circle cannot cover a full frame sensor, its image will always be cropped by a Super35/APS-C sensor. For the record, the image of this 35mm lens on a Super35/APS-C sensor will be equivalent of a 55mm lens on a full frame sensor.

Doesn't the crop factor only apply if using this lens on a FF as these lens were designed to fully cover S35?
Asked by: CHRISTOPHER
The Meike 35mm T2.1 Cine Lens (EF Mount) is a S35 crop lens and would not work correctly with full frame cameras. S35 has a 1.5x crop making the view of this lens would be 52mm on a APS-C or Super 35 sensor camera.
