Adding to its 1.8x anamorphic lens line, Vazen introduces the 28mm T2.2 prime for MFT cameras.
Vazen caught a lot of people’s attention last summer at CES 2019 with a 40mm T2 lens dubbed “the world’s first 1.8x anamorphic MFT prime.” Now, the company is adding a second lens to that line, a 28mm T2.2 1.8 anamorphic prime that retails at $3250.
With an aluminum body, this lens is lighter and more compact than Vazen’s 40mm—in fact, at 1.59 lbs., it ended up being the lightest 1.8x anamorphic lens in the world. And because it’s small and lightweight, it makes traveling with it, shooting on gimbals, or capturing handheld shots less of a chore.
According to Vazen, you can expect sharp images from this lens (even wide open). Its 77mm front filter thread makes using ND filters, diopters, and other accessories easy, and features like independent aperture and focus rings allow more experienced, professional filmmakers to have more control over their final images. It’s also got a 72-degree horizontal field of view and focusing distance of 2.7″.
