WANTED: Iscorama 36/42/54 In: ANAMORPHIC Posted June 15, 2012 as I see it the only selling point is the sharpness matched with the focus system. if sankors/eikis had the same focus system I doubt there would be so much obsession with the iscos. If you were shooting a proper movie you would use (hired) panavision lenses. It's nuts these people paying more than 500 for a isco that is very unlikely to see any use within a real production. all they will do is create test footage and then get bored and sell it. the bubble will burst soon enough. my 20gbp century anamorphic + diopter with enough light to allow the taking lens to be set at f8 allows more than enough sharpness for 1080p. f5.6 is sharp enough for 720p and f2.8 is fine for when you need the speed and can handle a bit of softness.
