SLR Magic to Launch Redesigned 12mm T1.6 Lens Soon

SLR Magic have announced a new 12mm T1.6 HyperPrime cine lens. Due later in November 2013, the new lens encompasses the same optics as the popular original but with a mechanical redesign. Aesthetically, the new lens is in keeping with the rest of the new HyperPrime lenses, the 35mm T1.4 II, 25mm T0.95 and 35mm T0.95. The redesign, aimed at cinematographers, provides gearing to both the focus and aperture rings which previously required an optional lens gear. The optical element of the 12mm HyperPrime remains the same.
