The CINE 3514 Lens is a compact lens designed for compact system cameras for both photography and cinematography. Excellent for portrait and creative photography.
With a wide aperture it shows a sharp “hot spot” in the centre and a beautiful, soft bokeh in the boundary area aided by 12 curved aperture blades and optical design. With different combinations of f-stop and focus, the CINE 3514 provides a lovely feel and look to images, perfect for both stills photography and cine use.
The robust metal construction houses an array of glass elements (8 elements in 8 groups, 4 tantalum) to provide a fast aperture of T1.4 (T stops are a measure of the actual amount of available light). Aperture setting and focusing is done manually. Specifically for cinematographers this lens has an integrated follow-focus set-up and a "de-clicked" (silent / smooth) aperture. These are essential when filmaking.
Compact and lightweight, a perfect everyday companion for everyone. Compatible with Micro four thirds (MFT) mount cameras (Fujifilm X mount and Sony E mount also available). This mark II version has improved focusing and a more robust front section. The latter is designed to allow the use of anamorphic lenses with out compromise.
The Micro Four Thirds system has had a fanatical following among film makers since the breakthrough GH2 hit the market. Its 1080 video went head to head with full frame DSLRs and showed itself to be more than the equal of its prestigious competitors.
