  1. Not sure about FF cameras. On the GH2 35mm lens is probably the widest possible before real vignetting starts. That should mean 75mm on FF if i'm not wrong....
  2. Centascope is sold Kowa 8Z is still there - 400€ for you guys in a great condition! http://www.ebay.de/itm/291122889070?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

  4. If the price is too high for it you shouldn't buy it and mind your own business!!! ...or try to negotiate with me privately. What you just did is simply not fair not cool and simply stupid. The fact is - that the Bolex is an amazing rare x1.5 film lens with amazing optics. If you prefer to pay 3 times the price for an Iscorama it's your right (which you might justify), but this Bolex gets a nicer image.... Yes! Bolex has indeed much better glass than Isco, and was made for a film camera and not still like the Iscorama. Show me one person that use Isco's spherical lenses - you probably won't find anyone - because their glass is simply average. people are still buying the common 16H for just a bit less and it's x2, projector lens and again, pretty common. So how can you say the Bolex is expensive?? have you ever tried it?? Most likely you havn't i would say. Just for you to know - I havn't made any profit on this one. SOLD!
  5. I don't exclude anyone and can send worldwide. Get in touch if you're interested!
  6. Price is reduced to €800! I can ship on Monday, afterwords won't be here for a week. You wouldn't get any anamorphic at this level for that price!
  7. Hi There, Check out the lens on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=291107399756 Price for you guys will be 830€ + shipping (around 10€-20€) for direct Paypal. Feel free to ask questions!
  8. Updated the price - Get it before someone else does :)
  9. Can be that the reason is the SLR. But for me their anamorphot seems like nothing more than an improved model of the century 16:9. That's not a compliment. People that know to appreciate the organic look and sharpness will go for the classics. I wish there was a relevant competitor but there is nothing out there yet. Give me new anamorphic glass that can compete with the brilliant optics of the Bolex anamorphot...Same for the Lomos, Kowas and the Iscoramas (and well...for most of those things that smells like the 60's :-) I'm not talking only about sharpness here. It's also distortion, Chromatic aberration(!!!), organic flares and...oh...character! I believe it would take some time to see something really good around, definitely not in single focus soon for a decent price. I'm also generally not a fan of those focus through adapters. They always seem like the easy way to do it and it's just never really sharp and / or too much diopter oriented. Even the Letus is not really sharp (but still expensive, especially with all the extras you want to have) Besides X1.33 is not really that cool. We need a bit more spice than that. If you have a sharp camera, or you're a lucky 4k owner, you can blow it up a bit and nobody will say anything. That's just my opinion. And regarding the new lenses it's all impressions i got from links online, Iv'e never tried them myself. Conclusion: I prefer to focus two rings and get a lovely classic anamorphic image there. Or of course to go for a single focus Lomo / Isco if my wallet stands the pain...
  10. The lens is in a close to mint condition. For details check the auction on ebay: http://www.ebay.de/itm/Bolex-anamorphot-19-1-5X-anamorphic-lens-close-to-mint-condition-/291100959414?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276 For EOSHD members - 760€ including worldwide shipping! (for direct Paypal) There are few of those running now on ebay - I made sure to give the best price - probably for the lens in the best condition.

I'll be happy to answer any question!
  12.         I see what you're saying, and in addition it really makes more sense using a rotating filter in the front.  The only problem is, since in most of the anamorphic adapters there is no filter thread, you really need rails and a matte box and i'm not so excited about it yet. keeping things small is sometimes more efficient, especially when using a dslr light steadycam or such things.        Sound also very true. so would say -  if you want flares - ND in the middle. if you don't care about flares (also if for individual shots) ND in the front. I think i'll mainly go for a middle ND than but maybe better a fixed one, which i can replace. a bit of a hassle to change filters but probably no choice to avoid rotating system.   
  13. alright, that's an interesting point with the variable ND filter. I actually dont like when things can move around in the system...but maybe with a fixed ND it can be a way to go. Thanks for you comment! 
  14. Alright , important to know...thanks!
  15. So i have two different opinions so far...any more ideas? And what about my second question - multi coated taking lens- does it make any difference flaring wise? Thanks people
  16. I'm sure a lot of anamorphic shooters are asking themselves those questions as well:   1. working with a ND filter - should i place the filter in front of the anamorphic, or is it just as good to place it         between the taking and the anamorphic lens? (can be more practical most of the time)   2.  would you recommend to use a taking lens which is not multi coated, in order to keep stronger flares?    Would be happy to hear your thoughts,   thanks!
