  1. It won't work. Check the table here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flange_focal_distance
  2. I think I have one, it has blue flare. Nothing special. Kinda small and light weight. If you find a cheap one, just buy it.
  3. I almost get one myself but after seeing the review that it's not IF, I'm officially out.
  4. You can buy a new Aivascope for 2250 EUR from their FB page. I haven't seen anyone selling a used one though.

    Mystery lens

    After many years, I found one on eBay again https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wide-Screen-super-MAGNUM-Anamorphic-Lens-super-rare-1-5x-made-in-ENGLAND/254194573211?hash=item3b2f2d5f9b:g:uYAAAOSwKEhchA5h Actually, I was surprised to see myself replying this thread in 2013. I didn't' realize that at first LOL
  6. It looks sharper than most vintage anamorphic out there which is good, at least for me What is it like for the focus ring on the Aivascope? Is it buttery smooth like most manual focus lenses or stiff like Rapido FVD-16A?
  7. I used to own one that's working just fine. I don't think there's an easy way to adjust the infinite. Hope someone can shed a light for you.
  8. Thanks for the info. I read someone commented on a Facebook post asking for EF mount so I wondering if the lens would cover S35 sized sensors.
  9. Both 28mm and 40mm cover only m4/3 sensor?
  10. I wish they had interchangeable mount.
  11. Thanks Nahua for the input! This is actually the Original Iscorama. I don't recall exactly when it started having the rainbow flares but I somehow recall it wasn't there when I tested it long time ago. My Iscorama Cinegon doesn't have these rainbow flares at all so that made me wondering why it happens. Tito told me it was from the original Iscorama's design. I'm still not sure though.
  12. Not sure when it started to have these wired flare at corners. Anyone knows why and how to fix that? It appears with every lens I tried. The glass looks clean though.
  13. By the way, I just recall I've sent Christopher my Iscorama Cinegon one year ago... I think he's still working on it
  14. Yeah... me too. Luckily I didn't send mine.
  15. Would be awesome if Veydra makes some Anamorphic lenses for S35 sensor.
  16. ‚ÄčIf you are willing to sell yours for half price of the mentioned listing. Please let me know
  17. I owned a similar version with a slightly different squeezing ratio at 1.42x. Felt disappointed so I sold it after awhile. IMO, The Iscorama 36 and the Cingeon are the best so far.
  18. You guys have to see this! http://www.ebay.com/itm/SINGLE-focus-anamorphic-lens-anamorphot-iscorama-kowa-8z-iscomorphot-cinemascope-/111538031181?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_146&hash=item19f82f4a4d
  19. Nope, mine has close focus at 4ft too. But since I asked Christopher to put metric scale I got 1.2m to inf. See more photos here.
  20. I've finally received my lens today! The package arrived in not so good condition. A lot of scratches and tears but the contents inside was packed carefully. The lens and rod support work good. I feel the rod support could work better if it does not rotate easily because the screws aren't so secured. The Iscorama itself has some stiff focus movements around 1.6m - 3m not sure why he didn't fix that. Also he somehow made some scratches on the Iscorama label on the front part of the lens but that's okay. Even though it is a nice modification, if I would have a chance to choose again I wouldn't send my Iscorama to get modded!
  21. Hi rich, What is the thread size for the Tokina +0.4?
