The Sirui 35mm T2.9 1.6x Anamorphic lens for L Mount is a revolutionary piece of optical engineering designed to elevate the cinematography of L mount users. Meticulously crafted to deliver the iconic anamorphic look, this lens combines innovative technology with classic cinematic aesthetics. The Sirui 35mm T2.9 1.6x Anamorphic lens a must-have for filmmakers and videographers aiming to capture expansive, emotive visuals with a distinct cinematic flair.

Cinematic Widescreen Vision: With a 1.6x anamorphic squeeze, this lens maximises the full-frame sensor of L Mount cameras to produce a 2.8:1 aspect ratio when shot in 16:9. This aspect ratio, reminiscent of theater movie experiences, allows for a broader and more immersive view, bringing an undeniable cinematic quality to your footage.

Optical Design: The lens features an anamorphic front element that optically distorts the image to squeeze the horizontal axis by 1.6 times. This technique packs more information onto the sensor, which, when stretched back to its original aspect ratio in post-production or in-camera, results in a wider field of view and the signature anamorphic look.

Artistic Flare and Bokeh: Sirui has engineered this lens to produce striking horizontal flares and beautiful oval-shaped bokeh, characteristics that are quintessential to anamorphic cinematography. The coatings on the lens minimize unwanted flare covering the frame while accentuating the anamorphic flare and bokeh, adding depth and emotion to your scenes.

Aperture and Depth of Field: With a fast T2.9 aperture, the lens allows for a very shallow depth of field. This shallow depth accentuates the anamorphic lens's unique oval bokeh, setting your subject apart from the background with a soft, out-of-focus area that is not achievable with conventional lenses or digital effects.

Focal Length and Field of View: The 35mm focal length offers a wide field of view, making it ideal for capturing expansive landscapes, cityscapes, or interior scenes without compromising the intimate, enveloping feel that anamorphic lenses are celebrated for.

Professional Focusing: The lens is equipped with built-in focus gears, seamlessly integrating with follow-focus systems for precise and smooth focusing. This feature is particularly beneficial for filmmakers who require accurate focus pulls to tell their story effectively.

Technical Specifications:

  • Lens Mount: L Mount, perfectly suited for full-frame L mount cameras.
  • Lens Structure: Composed of 18 elements in 13 groups, ensuring superior optical performance.
  • Aperture Blades: 13 blades contribute to a pleasing bokeh quality.
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 90cm, allowing for relatively close framing while maintaining a wide vista.
