UK based MTF Services is now converting the popular Sirui 1.33x anamorphic lenses to Sony FZ mount for F5/F55 and F3 owners.
The optics specialist outfit has been on a roll lately offering custom lens mount conversions from Micro Four Thirds to RF and L-mount for the popular budget anamorphic trio of lenses from Sirui.
Furthermore, the new custom conversion to Sony FZ is available for the Sirui 24mm f2.8, 35mm f1.8 and the Sirui 50mm f1.8 lenses.
Some of you may also recall, Sony used to make a sweet cine prime set for FZ mount, but since the F5/F55 and the F3 have already been superseded en-masse by the FS7 and more recently FX9 and their E-mount, the FZ mount is a bit of a dinosaur.
Nevertheless, the FZ mount’s “old school” status may be solidified as the PMW-F5/F55 are now a decade old (more than 10 years for the F3), but there’s plenty of pro cameraman/women still rocking these cameras that would love to have access to some seriously affordable anamorphic primes.
Sirui Anamorphic for Sony FZ mount thanks to MTF Services
The 1.33x anamorphic squeeze factor of the Sirui lenses is perfectly suited to the 16×9 aspect ratio image of these Sony models and fully covers their Super35 sensor.
The Sirui anamorphic lenses are designed for non 4:3 aspect ratio sensors and unlike 2x squeeze anamorphic lenses, which are a lot more expensive, offer a much more compact form-factor.
Moreover, once you properly de-squeeze the image, the result is a pleasing 2.39:1 CinemaScope image with the traditional stretched oval bokeh and the sought after blue streak anamorphic flares.
More Custom Conversions for Fujinon MK Series
Additionally, the latest Sony FZ mount conversion for these lenses is the latest mount to be offered by the UK-based MTF Services.
As some of you may also recall, MTF also offers FZ mount conversions for the Fujinon MK 18-55mm T2.9 and 50-135mm T2.9 cine zooms, plus a wide range of expanders and adapters.
