  1. Hi there, I have just got a Kowa 16D over the weekend. I am completely new to this and I have read on this forum and elsewhere, but I am not sure yet of what lens and clamps are best. Apparently, the Kowa 16D is not the same as the 8Z, as they say here. I have seen that in a lot of videos people is using the Helios 44 with Redstan Clamps. Is this the best for the Kowa 16D? I have also seen that some guys are using the Nikon 50mm. I have got a Panasonic GH2 with a SLR Magic 25mm T0.95. So I believe I will need to buy a lens anyway. I would like to also add some diopters as well. If you guys have some suggestions, I will very much appreciate any comments. Thank you PS: I am at work and I have the lens at home, so I will post some pictures later.
  2. Hi tferradans, When I first saw the offer on Craigslist I was attracted by the price and the possibility of checking the lens before buying it as I though the buyer was based in London. But thanks for the info. Borja
  3. Hello au8ust Thanks for your info. Really helps. I emailed the guy and got this answer: I replied saying I am not interested any more as I need to see it first. I believe you are right, it might be scam so I wish someone near Irvine, read this an email him, either to uncover this troll or to get a great lens. I will keep on looking online for another option. Thanks
  4. Hello there, I am trying to get an anamorphic lens for my GH2 and have come across a LOMO Arriflex 20-120mm with PL mount that someone is selling for £1.400. http://london.craigslist.co.uk/phd/4297942296.html I am new to anamorphic and I was looking for the cheaper Sankor and Kowa, but I was really excited at first. After that, I read this: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> Now, I am not sure if this lens it is as amazing as it looks and if the price is fair. I also found this video from what it seems to be the same lens: Any advice? Thank you for your time Borja
