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.
“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.”
