    SIRUI have today introduced a groundbreaking new 24mm F2.8 1.33x lens that redefines what is possible from a wide-angle anamorphic optic. It features the beautiful stretched oval bokeh and streaked lens flares that Sirui’s affordable anamorphic lenses have become known for, combined with a new wider field of view.

    Options for affordable wide anamorphic shooting have been very limited until now. Traditional wide-angle anamorphic cinema lenses have cost tens of thousands of dollars, while DIY anamorphic adapters based on optics designed for projection don’t cover wider angles. In addition, most of these solutions have limited close focus.

    The SIRUI 24mm F2.8 is designed from the ground up to address these needs. The lens features a 1.33x squeeze factor and has an imaging circle that covers APS-C sized sensors. It is available in native mounts for Micro Four Thirds, Sony E, Canon EF-M, Nikon Z, and Fujifilm X cameras and is sturdily built with an all-metal body. Front filter size is 77mm and the lens barrel is non-rotating which allows for easy use of variable ND and other filters. With persistent efforts, the SIRUI R&D team resolved key technical problems to deliver a previously impossible 0.6m minimum focusing distance – all without the need for additional diopters.

    The fast F2.8 aperture of the 24mm lens allows foreground objects to stand out against smoothly blurred backgrounds and night scenes to be perfectly captured. Combining the fast aperture with the 0.6m close focus also makes for interesting close-up options.

    The new 24mm joins the company’s existing 50mm and 35mm 1.33x anamorphic lenses to form a set of lenses that share common aesthetics and handling. Cinematographers can now use the lens trio to tell complete cinematic stories with SIRUI’s signature look, switching freely between scenes while maintaining common background rendering.

    Sirui lenses truly enhance the artistic appeal of your footage and immerse your audience in an anamorphic world.

  • I already got the 50mm and the 35mm: built quality is very good, anamorphic "side effects" are there (like horizontal flares, oval bokeh,...) but not to much and the image is sharp (especially when compared to anamorphic adapters!).

    Only thing that is not optimal: the squeeze factor changes slightly when focusing at a different distance (which can be compensated in post, but you have to be carefull).

    All in all, you can really shoot a movie with those lenses - not only flare and bokeh tests ;-)

    So, I'm in the first batch for the 24mm and I hope they will make an even shorter focal length lens (arround 12mm for MFT would be perfect).

  • It’s the anamorphic lens that doesn’t behave like one. Not oval bokeh, not so many aberrations, distortions from the anamorphic glass. Like a very controlled image. It’s not bad, but takes out a lot of the magic character of anamorphic imagery.
