SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE 21mm T/1.6 for FUJIFILM X-Mount and Sony E-Mount Cameras Released

SLR Magic has just released two new versions of its MicroPrime CINE 21mm T/1.6 lens for FUJIFILM X-Mount and Sony E-Mount mirrorless cameras. The FUJIFILM X-Mount version covers Super 35 sensors, while the Sony E-Mount version covers full-frame sensors.

In 2019, the Chinese lens manufacturer SLR Magic launched the SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE 21mm T/1.6 and 50mm T/1.4 for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The success of these compact and affordable cine primes was instant.

Based on that success, the company started making FUJIFILM X-Mount versions of their MicroPrime CINE lenses. In addition, they now continue to expand their lineup with the launch of the MicroPrime CINE 21mm T/1.6 in both FUJIFILM X and Sony E-Mounts.

SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE 21mm T/1.6 features

Like every other MicroPrime CINE lens, the 21mm T/1.6 is a fully-manual lens made of metal, and has standard 0.8 mod/32 pitch gears on both the focus/aperture rings.

The front diameter of the lens is 85mm for clip-on matte boxes, and it has an 82mm filter thread. What’s nice is that nearly all SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE lenses have a similar form factor and weight, making lens swaps a breeze.

The lens design consists of 13 elements in 11 groups. The FUJIFILM X-Mount version covers Super35 sensors, as FUJIFILM does not have any full-frame mirrorless camera. However, the Sony E-Mount version covers Full-Frame sensors, making it ideal for filmmakers that use mirrorless cameras or cinema cameras like the Sony FX3/FX6.

Price and availability

The MicroPrime CINE 21mm T/1.6 in FUJIFILM X-Mount and Sony E-Mount versions is available now for USD449.
