News and Events about SIRUI
Sirui has introduced a new set of lenses bases on its existing four models. The Sirui MARS lenses are designed to offer better handling for rigged cameras, and come with built-in mod gears for both aperture and focus rings. The apertures have also been reclassified as T-stops and the focus throw of each of the models has been significantly extended to make accurate focus adjustments easier with follow focus equipment.
SIRUI has announced its new carbon fiber AM-2 Travel Tripod series featuring a total of five tripod models.
They are lightweight, with the largest and heaviest model weighing in at 1.22kg (2.69lbs). The tripods are suitable for uses that range from macro to travel photography.
The 50mm 1.33x anamorphic that was launched in February, this lens is designed for APS-C and MFT sensors. It will be only available in the MFT mount but there are adapters for Sony E, Canon EF-M and Nikon Z mount camera systems, according to a video placed on the company’s U.S. Facebook page. The lens will come with detachable geared rings for the focus and aperture rings, uses a 67mm front filter thread and has a minimum focus distance of 0.85m (2.8ft).READ MORE

After much teasing, Sirui has finally launched its second anamorphic lens for interchangeable lens systems.

Mount adapter manufacturer MTF Services is targeting videographers using L and RF mount cameras with a pair of low-cost anamorphic lenses. The company is converting the Sirui Micro Four Thirds 35mm and 50mm F1.8 1.33x anamorphic lenses to work with Leica L and Canon RF mount cameras.
These lenses have an imaging circle wider than the APS-C format, so they work with Super35 sensor areas and even with full-frame recording with a 1.35x crop. With the Sirui 50mm F1.8 costing just under $700/£600 and the 35mm F1.8 costing less than $800/£770, these lenses are the only affordable anamorphic options to those shooting with a host of full-frame cameras.
