The Sony E-mount Saturn 50mm T2.9 1.6x Carbon Fiber Anamorphic Lens from Sirui provides a classic anamorphic look in a compact, lightweight form. Ideal for gimbal, stabilizer, drone, and handheld use, this lens measures only 4.3" in length and features a carbon fiber barrel that reduces the weight of the lens. The lens produces horizontal neutral streaks when pointed at a light source, giving your footage a classic anamorphic look.

An image captured in 16:9 is de-squeezed to an anamorphic 2.8:1 aspect ratio, whereas shooting in 3:2 yields a 2.4:1 final image. The T2.9 aperture produces a shallow depth of field, separating your subject from the foreground, and the 10-blade aperture creates oval bokeh effects.

Full-Frame Coverage
  • The large 45mm image circle covers up to full-frame camera sensors.
  • Aspherical elements eliminate chromatic aberration.
Lightweight Design
  • This Saturn-series lens is made with a carbon fiber front barrel that reduces the overall weight while remaining durable.
  • The compact, lightweight design is ideal for handheld, gimbal, and stabilizer use.
Anamorphic Design
  • Horizontal neutral streak effects create a classic anamorphic look.
  • Ten aperture blades produce oval bokeh effects.
Constant 1.6x Squeeze
  • The 50mm Saturn lens maintains a constant 1.6x squeeze ratio at all focusing points, ensuring that the subject size doesn't change as you pull the focus.

Asked by: Kham
The Sirui Saturn 50mm T2.9 1.6x Carbon Fiber Full-Frame Anamorphic Lens may or may not require a gimbal to need counterweights, depending on the system it is being used on and how it is being balanced onto the gimbal.
