The video author does make a good point, we’ve never had anamorphic lenses in combination with a camera this good as this total price point. If you are after the anamorphic look then you could grab just one of these lenses along with the GH5.
This video shows the SLR Magic 25mm F1.4, 35mm F1.2, 50mm F1.1, 75mm F1.4 in action. Unfortunately it’s not labeled for which lens is used for which segment. Nonetheless it shows the general look you can get from these excellent budget lenses. We find the 50mm to be the weakest link. The camera is the Sony A7R II.
At $499 each we are impressed with the price of these lenses and we also hope to be impressed by the optical quality. These lenses have not been released yet but are available for pre-order. The 35mm features 9 lens elements in 8 groups and the 75mm features 6 elements in 6 groups. Availability is expected to be in August.
The SLR Magic APO HyperPrime 50mm T2.1 Cine Lens is expected to be cheaper than the competition but hold its own. It’s advertised as rated for 4K and 6K sensors. You can read more at the SLR Magic’s website.
