SLR Magic working on anamorphic lenses for MFT!

September 12th, 2012

For many the Blackmagic Cinema Camera with MFT mount was a pretty exciting announcement as it opens up the camera for the use with many different kinds of lenses.

SLR Magic just confirmed that they are now woking on creating some inexpensive anamorphic lenses.
The company is known to produce the famous Noktor primes that have an extreme lowlight capability with their f-stop of f0.95.

Anamorphic lenses are a very interesting option for those who want to make full use of the BMCC’s small sensor design.

In a chat with SLR Magic today, the company confirmed to us that they are working on Anamorphic lenses (and not toys). In a forum, they asked users (as is typically their fashion) what types of lenses are yearned for. So far, they’ve gotten quite a bit of response. Not much has been released yet, but they’re currently deciding on 1.33X, 1.5X, or 2X. They’re currently working on the idea of a 25mm f/3.2 1.35x or 35mm f/3.2 1.35x.
