First Look at SLR Magic MicroPrime Cine Lenses (NAB 2018)

During NAB 2018 that ended this weekend, SLR Magic introduced a new line of small, lightweight and affordable Sony FE-mount (Full Frame) lenses.

The new line called MicroPrime, includes 5 lenses:

  • 18mm T2.9
  • 25mm T.1.5
  • 35mm T1.3
  • 50mm T.1.2
  • 75mm T1.5

All lenses have a focus throw of 150 degrees (for comparison the Veydra mini prime has a 300-degree focus throw so this might be higher than a stills lens but this isn’t considering that much for a CINE lens).

The lenses will start shipping this May (the 18mm will come later on this year), for a very affordable price of just under $800 and we will be trying to acquire one of them for a review later on this year.
