The new titanium PL mount SLR Magic Anamorphot cinema lenses are designed for RED users, Canon and Arri professionals. They’re also a great fit for the Sony A7S II and Samsung NX1.
The Leica M Noctilux which costs $11,000 is a full frame F0.95 photographic lens. The SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE T0.95 is a full frame F0.92 lens designed for cinematographers with Leica M mount which retails for $3,000 – a third of the Noctilux.
It is quite a different lens to the Voigltander Nokton 25mm F0.95 for Micro Four Thirds. It covers a full frame sensor and APS-C mirrorless cameras like the Sony FS100 and NEX 7 whilst the Nokton vignettes on anything larger than Micro Four Thirds. I shot the above film on the Panasonic GH2 with Iscorama 36 anamorphic attached to the SLR Magic CINE but I am also using it on my NEX 7 and Fuji X Pro 1.
Matthew Duclos reports that he’s modified a Nokton 25mm F0.95 for film industry use. It has several standard features of a cine lens.
- Seamless follow focus gear
- 80mm front ring
- De-clicked aperture ring
I recently picked up a Carl Zeiss 50mm F1.4, not the newer one but an older Rollei mount similar to the Contax Zeiss version. The HFT coating was what Zeiss called T* coating on the Rollei lenses. It was designed to go on a Rolleiflex SL35 35mm film camera.
