Somewhat unexpectedly we found a lens surprise at a very small IFA booth. SIRUI, a manufacturer that is well known for its tripods, wants to launch a real anamorphic lens at a great price this year.
The SIRUI 50mm/F1.8 1,33x anamorphic photo should not cost more than 500 Euro. It is calculated for APS-C/S35 image circles and should be available in three mount variants: Sony FE, FUJI X and MicroFourThirds. The close-up limit is 0.85m and the manual focus ring has a rotation angle of 143 degrees. The weight is approx. 560 grams.
Of course, we are curious to see how much quality you will ultimately get at this competitive price.
