Lenses

Samyang has unveiled a premium, fast prime lens, the manual-focus XP 50mm f/1.2 for Canon full-frame DSLR cameras. It's the third lens of the premium line up, following in the footsteps of the XP 14mm f/2.4, XP 85mm f/1.2.

This lens easily resolves more than 50 megapixels for photography and 8K for video. The lens features 11 lenses in 8 groups, helping to minimise distortion and various aberrations, while producing crystal clear resolution. The special optic lenses, aspherical lens, and high-refractive lens deliver sharp and vivid images to camera sensors by effectively tuning the light path, and, thanks to the ultra multi-coating, flare and ghosting effects can be controlled. 

The lens will cost £799 when it goes on sale next month.

Legendary British lens maker Cooke will reveal its new S7/i Full Frame Plus lenses, the only purpose-built full frame lens set on the market designed specifically to cover the 46.31mm image circle of the RED Weapon 8K. The lenses will go on show at the BSC Expo in Battersea, London on 2-3 February 2018.

Converted to Fujifilm!

Fujifilm's MK series of affordable cine zooms may only come in an E-mount at the moment, but two British filmmakers have had theirs converted for use on Micro Four Thirds and Sony FZ mounts to make two new short films.

MTF in the UK and Duclos in the USA convert the MK lenses to fit Micro Four Thirds or Sony FZ fitment, and filmmakers Jim Marks and Alister Chapman have used their services to match up the MK optics to the favourite cameras. In Marks' case a Panasonic GH5, while Sony specialist Chapman used a Sony F5.

Try Fujifilm's new cinema lenses for free as part of Hireacamera's promotion in London on October 30 at Cherryduck studios. Check out the official information below...
