14 May Wide angle 1.8x anamorphic lens for full frame sensors launched by Vazen

Chinese lens manufacturer Vazen has launched a 50mm T2.1 lens to add to its anamorphic offering for full frame users. With its 1.8x sequeeze this 50mm will deliver the sort of horizontal angle of view we’d expect from a 28mm regular lens on a full frame system, so it is effectively a wide angle lens.

The 50mm joins the company’s existing 85mm T2.8 in the FF 1.8x anamorphic range, and these are set to be made into a trio when a 135mm lens begins shipping in June/July this year.

These lenses all come with interchangeable PL/EF mounts and shims included in the kit, and all have 0.8 mod cine gears on to the focusing and aperture rings. The 50mm and 85mm also have matching 86mm filter threads and 95mm matte box fittings, and have full aluminum body construction.

The lens has a closest focus of 3.6 feet /1.1m from the sensor, is 5.2in/13.3cm long, 95mm in diameter and it weighs 3.24lbs/1.55kg – so it is actually quite small. You will though need to factor in a PL adapter depending on the camera you are using.

Scheduled to ship in August 2021 the Vazen 50mm T2.1 1.8x anamorphic lens will cost $8000, though you can save $2000 if you buy the $8000 85mm at the same time. This is a lot of money, of course, but it’s a good deal less than other anamorphic lenses designed for FF sensors. For more information see the
