At this year’s IFA trade show in Berlin, German website Slashcam spotted a lens that filmmakers among you might find interesting. It’s SIRUI 50mm/F1.8 1,33x Anamorphot lens, an anamorphic lens designed for APS-C Sony E and Fuji X, as well as Micro 4/3 cameras.

For now, there isn’t too much information about the upcoming lens. All we know is that it will be available as native Sony E, Fuji X, and MFT mounts. It features the 0,85m (33.4 in) close focus distance and weighs 560g.

When it comes to the price, Mirrorless Rumors reports that it’s close to 500 euros (around $555). It should be available in late 2019, so I guess this is when we will know more information about the specs, the exact price, and the shipping date.

    SLR Magic has been making them a while, but it’s surprised me these haven’t become more popular among still photographers and prosumer videographers. Seems like every movie I’ve seen recently was shot with such a lens.

    Geez, I saw an old projector anamorph on Goodwill go for over $800 at auction and they didn’t even know what they had.
