SLR Magic Working on Anamorphic Lenses for Micro Four Thirds

In a chat with SLR Magic today, the company confirmed to us that they are working on Anamorphic lenses (and not toys). In a forum, they asked users (as is typically their fashion) what types of lenses are yearned for. So far, they’ve gotten quite a bit of response. Not much has been released yet, but they’re currently deciding on 1.33X, 1.5X, or 2X. They’re currently working on the idea of a 25mm f/3.2 1.35x or 35mm f/3.2 1.35x

Now combined this with the news of the new Black Magic Cinema Camera announced with a Micro Four Thirds passive mount, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a killer system already.

Our rep with SLR Magic couldn’t give us any more info, but it’s exciting news nonetheless.
