SLR Magic announces CINE 18mm F2.8 lens for Sony E-Mount

SLR Magic has released a new model in its series of manual-focus lenses for full-frame Sony E-Mount cameras: the SLR Magic CINE 18mm F2.8 wide angle. The optical design of the lens incorporates 10 elements in 8 groups and allows for a minimum focus distance of just 20cm (~7.9 inches).

The new lens features a black anodized body, a low weight of only 445 grams and compact dimensions, making it an interesting option for use on gimbals and other video-centric camera supports. It also comes with a 62mm filter thread. The aperture features a manually controlled diaphragm and 9 blades, and allows you to stop down from F2.8 to F16.

The SLR Magic line-up now covers a range from 18 to 75mm, with the latest addition looking like a good option for landscape and architectural photographers, in addition to video-shooters.

The SLR Magic CINE 18mm F2.8 will be available through authorized retailers starting in October, and will set you back $500.
