SLR Magic 18mm f/2.8 cine lens hands-on and sample footage – IBC 2017

The new SLR Magic 18mm f/2.8 cine lens is the latest design in the company’s full frame E-mount range. It joins the existing 25mm, 35mm, 50mm and 75mm offerings to round out the lineup.

Part of the family

It shares a lot of characteristics with the other lenses – 0.8mod gears for focus and iris control, round aperture for smooth bokeh and it’s physically similar in size. This makes it easier to use the set on a gimbal as you can swap lenses without having to rebalance your setup.

The lens features a useful 20cm close focus distance and a clickless aperture ring for smooth iris pulls.

SLR Magic 18mm f/2.8 price and availability

The SLR Magic 18mm f/2.8 for Sony E-mount will be available at the end of October for $499 US.
