Atlas Lens has commenced pre-orders for three cine lenses within their innovative Mercury 1.5x anamorphic line. Among these offerings are the Atlas Mercury 54mm T2.2, 95mm T2.2, and 138mm T2.2 1.5x lenses. Positioned as high-end, these premium lenses are tailored to synchronize seamlessly with top-tier cinema cameras.

Anamorphic Atlas Mercury price and release date

The inception of the new Mercury series of film optics dates back to its debut at the IBC 2022 exhibition in 2022, revealing a trio comprising the Atlas Mercury 42mm T2.2, 36mm, and 72mm T2.2.

During NAB 2023, a prototype of the Atlas Mercury 54mm T2.2 1.5x lens was showcased, and it’s now open for pre-orders.

Distinguishing itself from the renowned Atlas Orion 2x anamorphic optics, the Mercury 1.5x line is defined by its compactness and lighter build. An inherent distinction lies in these lenses’ original design for full-frame and wide-format sensors without necessitating an extender. Their compression of 1.5x is less extreme, hence allowing for a more compact construction.

Inheriting the character and color tones akin to the original trio (36, 42, and 72mm), the new anamorphic cine lenses from Atlas Lens present distinct golden flares, meticulously tuned barrel distortion, and near-absent chromatic aberration.

Exclusively available in the professional ARRI PL mount, the Mercury lenses boast standardized mechanical attributes, featuring a 95mm front diameter and a contemporary cinema body complete with standardized gears.

The second array of the Atlas Mercury Series optics is now available for pre-order through at a price point of $7,995 per lens. As per the company’s announcement, shipments for the entire lens range are slated to commence in the third quarter of 2024.

Additionally, Venus Optics recently unveiled two new inclusions to its Anamorphic Laowa cine lens lineup within the Nanomorph series, catering to cinematographers seeking enhanced versatility. This announcement also introduces a front anamorphic adapter featuring a 1.33X zoom ratio. The Laowa Nanomorph series, comprising the 27mm T2.8 1.5x, 35mm T2.4 1.5x, and 50mm T2.4 1.5x, is meticulously crafted for Super35 sensors sporting a 16:9 aspect ratio, offering operators the opportunity to achieve a cinematic aspect ratio of 2.66:1.
