SIRUI has simply expanded their full-frame anamorphic lens lineup, or relatively they’re within the technique of doing so. The brand new SIRUI 35mm and 100mm T2.9 1.6x anamorphic primes will launch by way of an Indiegogo crowdfunding marketing campaign on September eighth, 2022 9am EST. As well as, the corporate has additionally introduced a handy 1.25x anamorphic adapter that will increase the 1.6x to a 2x squeeze issue and likewise works on spherical lenses.
Along with the already out there full-frame anamorphic lenses (50mm T2.9 –article-, 75mm T2.9 –article-), SIRUI expands its product vary to 4 lenses plus the above-mentioned adapter with this announcement. Though the 2 anamorphic lenses SIRUI 35mm and 100mm T2.9 1.6x aren’t but out there, there may be already loads of out there data to resolve if these new lenses are value investing within the upcoming Indiegogo marketing campaign or not.
The brand new 1.25x Anamorphic Adapter can be utilized to extend the squeeze issue from 1.6x to 2x (1.6 × 1.25 = 2.0), however because it comes with a “normal” 82mm rear thread, you may put it in entrance of an entire vary of lenses, not simply anamorphic ones. Three step-down rings (67mm, 72mm, 77mm) and one step-up ring (92mm) are included, so it ought to work with quite a few totally different lens makes and fashions.
SIRUI 35mm and 100mm T2.9 1.6 anamorphic primes
The 2 new SIRIU full-frame anamorphic lenses share lots of their specs and options with their older siblings, the 50mm and 75mm T2.9 1.6x anamorphic. They cowl full-frame sensors, can be found with Canon RF, Leica L, Sony E or Nikon Z mounts, and have blue lens flare and, after all, stretched oval bokeh results.
Along side the upcoming 1.25x anamorphic adapter, the scenario modifications a bit, as not each lens will nonetheless cowl full-frame sensors as soon as the adapter is connected to the entrance of the lens. It seems to be just like the 35mm T2.9 and the 50mm T2.9 will solely cowl S35 sensors as soon as the adapter is connected, whereas the 75mm and the 100mm T2.9 will nonetheless work with full-frame sensors with out vignetting. I believe we’ll have to attend for some subject assessments earlier than we are able to make a 100% assertion right here.
With a size of solely 46.5mm, the adapter is comparatively small and light-weight (650g). The minimal focus distance is 0.8m. When the adapter is in place, the main target ring of the “host” lens ought to be set to infinity, because the adapter will now do the focusing. If in case you have misaligned the adapter and the (desired) lens flares aren’t precisely horizontal, merely press the button on the adapter, rotate the entire thing, and snap it again into place with the flares now completely aligned.
All 4 full-frame lenses characteristic similar focus (metric and imperial scales) and iris ring positioning and are color-matched for straightforward and seamless lens modifications.
The 35mm T2.9, just like the 50mm and 75mm, has 10 aperture blades, whereas the 100mm T2.9 presents 13 aperture blades. The main target ring rotates 120º on the 35mm and 100º on the 100mm. The 35mm weighs about 950g (relying on the mount), whereas the 100mm ideas the scales at 1,485g.
