    And the somewhat saggy rig. Need better mounting and support

    A bit more extensive. Shot on the Helios 44 full frame with 1.2x digital zoom enabled. Cropped to 2.66.

    I'm sure we'll see a more advanced shim system in the coming weeks. The key here is the lens has to be close enough to 71mm to fit inside the shim that is currently shipping. Like I said, I got REALLY lucky that the Hypergonar just happened to fit the shim well enough to be ghetto rigged inside the FM. I'm incredibly stoked that the Helios works with the A7s full frame with a 1.2 crop (for 2.66 cropping in post [throwing away the edges]). The combo is such a sweet spot between clinical and dreamy.

    Initial mounting was really easy. Included was a small silver aluminum collar. The Hypergonar I own tapers towards the back so as a work around, I focused the anamorphic to infinity, gaffed the collar onto the anamorphic and slid it into the FM lens. Used the included hex key to clamp down on the collar and slid onto my crappy plastic cage. I'll need to figure out a more secure mount with the 1/4" threaded clamp. The weight of the focus module causes it to swing loose. Some pictures:

    First impressions:
    SHARP! So glad it's so sharp
    Focus throw feels huge but it's only the size of the lens. Focusing is really a breeze.
    Mounting was easy, easy to adjust anamorphic leveling.
    The rear collar could be a bit wider (ie two 1/4" holes) to keep the heavy lens assembly from swaying. Nothing a little rubber can't fix.

    More shooting tomorrow!

    Focus throw test. Of course it's raining today in New Mexico (of all days) so tests will have to happen on the weekend. After cranking the lens down with a flat head, the swaying is gone. Focusing isn't bad at all. 58mm Helios barely vignettes full frame (cropped to 2.66). Cropping to 2.66 helps with the edge distortion as well. The flare in the first video might have come from the slightly dimmed overhead light or my iPhone. Regardless I don't know if it came from the front element or the small space between my anamorphic and prime. In shooting around the house, shooting into direct light seems to cause some softening and glow around light sources, due to the HUGE front element. As mentioned before, it seems this lens is sharp when it counts, but promotes the organic nature of anamorphic. Very satisfied.

    Just received the lens but unfortunately I'm at work. I'll do some tests tonight/tomorrow and get something up! Packaged really well. Solid build, slightly metallic focus feel but very solid. All of the grub screws are snug and a hex key is included for the small screws on the barrel. Caps included as well as a silver collar which seems to be for smaller anamorphics. The small grub screws on the barrel itself could be replaced fairly easily with longer, stronger ones for smaller anamorphics. More later.

    Using a Hypergonar. A7S with a set of Russian glass. Initial tests will be minimitable focal length for FF and APS-C as well as quick rack focus, sharpness tests, and of course bokeh and flares.

    Order and honored the discount. £560 to my door via FedEx in 3-5 business days. As soon as I get it, I'll try to get some test up. What does everyone want to see?

    @comurit Thank you so much for all the work and correspondence.

    All three were Cinelux WA, Canon 50mm 1.8, and a GH2.

    Very sharp, very crisp and defined flares.

    No longer own this and kind regret getting rid of it. Own a version 2 Hypergonar now, which in comparison has much less crisp but very long flares. I would say the Cinelux is more clinical and the Hypergonar more filmic and organic.
