SIRUI Mars: cinematic rehousing
The SIRUI Mars kit includes a 24, a 35, a 50 and a 75mm Anamorphic 1.33x re-housed in a more cinematic fashion. The kit is currently only available for Micro Four Thirds cameras. It would be great to see an ever longer focal length in the future, as well as other mount options.
All lenses feature a T2 aperture, with the exception of the 24mm T2.9. The iris value is now expressed using the T-stop scale rather than f-stops.
The four lenses have built-in focus and declicked aperture mod gears for easier use when paired with a follow focus system. In order to make working with accessories easier, the distance between the two gears is the same on all lenses, as well as their physical diameter.
However, there’s a slight difference in weight between the four focal lengths, which might be a little drawback when balancing the camera package on a steady cam or gimbal.
Moreover, the SIRUI Mars kit lenses are designed with a long focus throw that should make pulling focus even more precise. In fact, the longest focus ring range in the kit reaches an excursion of 303°.
The lenses still feature a metallic construction and 67mm filter thread. A 1/4”-20 threaded hole has been added at the bottom of each lens in order to provide more mounting options and better support.
