Hands-on with the Sirui 75mm F1.8 1.33x anamorphic lens

It was only at the beginning of 2020 that Sirui announced its first 1.33x anamorphic lens, and already the company has a collection of four focal lengths in the set. The 50mm F1.8 was followed by a 35mm F1.8, a 24mm F2.8 and now we have a 75mm F1.8 aimed at those needing a longer perspective for portrait shots. I still find it surprising that other lens companies haven’t muscled in on the action, as these Sirui models remain the only low/mid cost lenses for those wanting to shoot anamorphic on Micro Four Thirds and APS-C/S35 sensor cameras.

This new model is set to retail for $899, but as usual the lens is being launched via Indiegogo where ‘Early Bird’ offers see it going for $699.
