Adorama is now stocking SLR Magic’s line of lenses, including the Noktor 50mm f/0.95 HyperPrime lens and the new Noktor 35mm T 0.95 HyperPrime Cine lens. There are plenty of cool Micro Four Thirds, Sony E-Mount and other lens mount options from SLR Magic.
These ridiculously fast primes could also turn out to be solid mates for the upcoming Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, along with the 12mm T/1.6 lens, which works out to roughly 36mm field of view equivalent on the Super 16 sensor of the BPCC.
Check out the full line of SLR Magic lenses here at Adorama.
