Last year, lens specialists MTF Services, which also sells a variety of brands direct to consumers, like NiSi, Samyang, and Blueshape, announced they're offering lens mount conversions for the Sirui 35mm F1.8 and 50mm F1.8 anamorphics which tout a 1.33x squeeze and image circle wide enough to cover APS-C sized-sensors.
With Sirui releasing the 24mm F1.8 1.33x, MTF has stepped up to offer the same conversions in Canon RF, L-mount, and Sony FZ.
The lens mount is converted using the Micro Four Thirds lens, and for an additional fee of approx. $279 (£200), MTF will change the mount of your choice. If you don't already own the lens, the total cost will set you back approx. $1,300 (£950).
With the lens converted to Canon RF, it can fully cover the RED Komodo, Canon C70, as well as the Canon EOS R because the 4K full-frame has a 1.7x crop. When shooting full-frame on the Canon EOS R5 and R6, expect a crop around 1.35x. The L-mount version of the lens will pair nice with the video-centric Panasonic S1H and newer S5, both of which have anamorphic shooting modes.
Off the shelf, the Sirui 24mm F1.8 1.33x is available in Sony E, MFT, Nikon Z, Fuji X, and Canon EF-M mounts for a price tag of $999. It carries over a lot of the same features as the 35mm F1.8 and 50mm F1.8, but shooters will notice a bit more flaring with the 24mm, especially wide open. That aside, the trio of lenses are impressive for the price point.
