If you ever get a chance to use an anamorphic lens, even as a stills shooter, take it. It's great fun. They can be a bitch to focus, but they're worth it. Even the more affordable 50 and 75 from SIRUI are very good lenses and produce the familiar cinematic look with decently ovular bokeh and bright flare lines.


The new Laowa "nanomorphs" look really interesting, although note that they only cover Super 35 (essentially APS-C), which is still the most widely used format for cine although full frame is gaining ground fast.

They also asked me to update the review with information on this new model, but I will wait until it is available.

Hei Bastian, please keep us updated, that lens would be the easy solution to my "cravings" of super bokeh using my M10r.

Bored by "sharp" and nervous bokeh in mid distance (3 to 6 m) coming from all other Chinese Nocti, Voigt 1.0, 1.2 (the better indeed) etc..

I have already a 40 1.2 and that, by your samples, would be better if well built on full-body portraits at f1-1-1.2 with his super-smooth bokeh.

Google's Chinese to English translation produced a nearly incomprehensible word salad but did I correctly ascertain that the filter thread has increased from 52mm to 58mm?

I do hope Mr Ding has his focal plane levelled out. My Syoptic is a paperweight now.

and here https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1740891/5#15945846 re: faulty helicoid... it's quite obvious, and at all apertures - I understand that this design error is not uncommon.

The lens is very cheap, i suspect old version, reading problems written here, wathcing pics of cam, i said it is not make using classic double thread helicoid, but a coil railway with teflon rollers.
But i haven't disassebled it to be sure.

I was searching for "syoptic", so I couldn't find it - My fault

Thanks - can't wait for reviews. If there is no focal plane issue, then I'm in.

I'm wondering if the other lens mount versions of this lens are better? So far I've not come across the same problems with the Z-mount version as others here have mentioned when using the M-mount.

This is interesting from their website. I have not seen a discrepancy with my M lenses between film and digital!

"The lens' macular focus is based on the Leica
M Digital Edition. Players using Leica M film
cameras need to adjust the lens focusing
mechanism according to the instructional
video. Please kept informed!"
