  1. I bought mine for $900 and sold for the same in 2014. Good condition. Good luck.
  2. Hyperbole, fearmongering, exaggerations. This reads like a clickbaity Breitbart article.
  3. Interesting. How does this camera compare to the Sony a6500?
  4. Hey - sorry for the late reply. I think it took about two weeks in total (from L.A.)
  5. Yeah, I shipped my Bolex 8/19/1.5 to Bernie at super16inc.com in New York. It came back in good shape.
  6. (Just for the record, I sold the Iscorama in my above post)
  7. It's up on Ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/332191032492?
  8. I consider the condition to be very good, though I'm no optical engineer. There are no serious blemishes, haze, marks on the glass - aside from a few tiny specs that you’d expect with a vintage lens (none of which affect the image as far as I can tell). It's sharp, the focus is smooth and flares a gorgeous orange flare with good light source. Used with the Tokina achromat, it’s WOW. Here’s everything: - Iscorama Pre 36 anamorphic lens - Iscorama taking lens with Nikon mount - Tokina 72mm +0.4 achromat with original box and leather case. Ex+ condition - Variable ND filter 77mm with 72-77 step up ring AND 1.2 ND filter - Large custom built step up ring 52-55mm for mounting on other lenses, that aren’t the Iscorama taking lens. - Original lens cap (for collection) 72mm - but it doesn't really stay on - OPTIONAL: 55mm 1.8 SMC Takuma (the maximum focal distance for full frame). - New, better lens cap for use 72mm and rear Nikon lens cap for Iscorama taking lens - A nice sturdy Pelican Case! Well taken care of by photographer / filmmaker in L.A. Stored in pelican case most of the time. I’ll put into up on Ebay for 3000 later, but on here for 2800 USD. L.A. pickup would be great. For now US only. I can also throw in a nice SMC Takumar 55mm (M42) lens which is really nice for full frame cameras, if you like.

  9. I actually have an Iscorama pre 36 plus Tokina 0.4 achromat for sale. PM me for details (I haven't gotten around to photographing it yet).
  10. Adding film grain in post is a creative choice. Saying that it's "out of style" might be correct but grain should be used by a talented director where a clean look isn't appropriate and a grainy look is. Saying it's not longer in vogue is claiming that all films should be shot with a clean look in mind, which simply isn't true, even if some think it might be going out of style, because it's one of many creative choices the filmmakers have in their arsenal.
  11. What's the maximum focal length this anamorphot covers?
  12. They have to change that name now, surely ;o)
  13. As it happens, I have paired this lens with a bolex anamorphot. It's "OK" - definitely sharp but you get ugly flares because of the modern multi-coating and I always get a crap ton of purple fringing with new Zeiss's.
  14. Interesting, I hadn't considered a zoom lens. I'm leaning towards the Mir 1b 35mm (although they all seem to be multicoated) and/or Olympus OM F2 35mm for APS-c. Reading a lot of complaints about the Takumar 35mm though. I do like the look of the auto-Takumar 50 for FF. Thanks for the input everyone!
