  1. Hey Nahua,   I live in Bushwick Brooklyn an own a pre-36 Iscorama with Contax Zeiss lenses.   What did you have in mind?
  2. Different lenses for sale: (EDIT-VOIGT 17.5mm SOLD) KOWA 2X http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kowa-Prominar-1 ... 2a2e6423e5 SLR Magic 12mm f1.6 http://www.ebay.com/itm/SLR-Magic-Nokto ... 2a2e643a79 SLR Magic 25mm f0.95 http://www.ebay.com/itm/SLR-Magic-Nokto ... 2a2e644fa6   All like new except the Kowa 2X anamorphic. I'm getting rid of them cause I never used them and I rather have the money. I tried returning them but Noktor has a strict return policy (no returns).

  6. Rob,   I'm willing to buy it from you if you like! I'd love to have an Iscorama M42 mount.
  7. So the first image is 5ft at 1.4 https://www.dropbox.com/s/i3g7nqcff8te23j/1point4at5ft.jpg   the second 15ft at f8. https://www.dropbox.com/s/irczwrp5m3f1wd2/15ftatf8.jpg   So the lens focuses it just needs to be stopped down. I'm trying to figure out how to fix this some other way so I can shoot lowlight :/
  8. This is correct- I played with the focus somewhat but that would be the sharpest I can get it :/   I mean technically while both are different the gist of it should be the same... so if the anamorphic has this issue would it be possible that a diopter would fix it? If so which diopter?
  9. So I just did a test first thing in the morning. These are JPEGs from my stills camera (olympus OMD EM5) using a Canon 50mm FD 1.4 with an anamorphic clamp and a recently repaired Kowa 16H.   It doesn't seem to make much of a difference as to what I am focusing on. The first images are of the same focus point- the only thing changing is the aperture and ISO to compensate for change in aperture.   (I couldn't figure out how to upload the photos so I just put them in my dropbox and posted links) https://www.dropbox.com/s/b5vhomhiyxudoll/f1point4.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/wgwo34amyoifzky/f4.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/4jvkt44xttw2bae/f5point6.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/di1rzkoxv18742d/f8.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/0xuv3esd9bo1001/f11.jpg   As you can see it's only till I close down my aperture lens to about a f5.6 that I start to get good results. I'm wondering if this is the nature of the anamorphic lens (Kowa 16H) and it can easily be resolved with a diopter or perhaps it's my prime lens (although it is perfectly sharp at f1.4 when not used with the anamorphic).   I'm also attaching photos of close up objects to show it happens no matter where I am focused: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5l7gyy0d3etvo35/f5point6close.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/waooocj9zn9dcqk/f8close.jpg   Thanks for the help and listen :)
  10. So I purchased a Kowa 16H 2x anamorphic on ebay back in december. My first anamorphic lens, I was quite excited. Upon receiving it I noticed that moving the focus mechanism did absolutely nothing- even when the prime (50mm 1.4 Canon FD) was at the same focusing point. So I found someone to repair- sent it out- and got it back now. At first I noticed the same issue- there was just no way to get the lens to focus...and then I moved the aperture ring on my FD lens to f5.6. I've noticed that if I shoot f5.6 or higher the image finally gets in focus (which is what should happen as depth of field becomes longer) but does on really have to shoot at an f8-f11 to get a sharp image on a Kowa 16H??? Is mine just broken?   I figure I might need diopters but I want to make sure the repair guy actually did his job...
