Vazen has announced its second anamorphic lens for M4/3, the 28mm T2.2 1.8x.
We first saw their 40mm T/2 1.8X Anamorphic lens at Cinegaer in Los Angeles last year.
Erik is in the process of reviewing the 40mm T/2 so stay tuned for that.
Vazen 28mm T2.2 1.8x
The Vazen 28mm T2.2 1.8x Anamorphic Lens weighs in at 1.59 lbs (0.72kg) and it has an 80mm front diameter and a 77mm front filter thread. This is strange, considering the 40mm has a 110mm front diameter.
The minimum focus distance is 2.7’ (0.82m). The lens has a front anamorphic design, and Vazen claims that the lens has buttery smooth oval bokeh, signature blue horizontal flare and gives users that widescreen cinematic look.
