2 New Affordable Lenses from SLR Magic CINE

The affordable 35 and 75mm E-mount lenses were officially introduced at CineGear 2016.

SLR Magic has been tremendously busy this year steadily building out an impressive lineup of CINE lenses. Now, they've released two more additions to the Sony E-mount line, the SLR Magic CINE 35mm F1.2 wide angle lens and SLR Magic CINE 75mm F1.4 telephoto lens.

The lenses will be available starting August 2016 and both have a suggested price of $499. While not incredibly flashy, these are some solid, affordable lenses that deserve your attention.

SLR Magic claims: "The field of view of the SLR Magic CINE 35mm F1.2 and SLR Magic CINE 75mm F1.4 opens up many new creative composition opportunities, particularly in the fields of portrait, interior, architectural, and landscape cinematography and photography."

Aw, E-mount?

Let's hope they come out with EF versions, because we desperately need some decent affordable options. These can't be worse than the Rokinon/Samyang junk.

Some of the Rokinon lenses are excellent optical quality.

Their 16mm is sharper than the Zeiss equivalent and their 135mm f2.0 is sharper than Canon's L version.
