    Hello there !
    We had the opportunity and luck to be part of the "Dominica Film Challenge" this year, here is the result of our week in this tiny and lovely island from the Carribeans !
    Hope you'll like it.
    We mainly shot with a Red epic, but there is also some 5d III raw footage as we had troubles with our luggage (4 days to arrive..). There are also a few drone shots made with a phantom 2 and a gopro 4.

    Yes, it does appear to be the same lens referred to in the thread you mentioned. Keep in mind; the one used and mentioned by QuickHitRecord was modified to have a shorter focus throw instead of having to turn the barrel 5 complete revolutions to travel from infinity to close focus. Seems interesting and a rather convenient modification especially given the close focusing capability of this lens without the use of diopters.
    Pricing seems to be all over the place as usual and I am sure a good deal could be found at some point. The ones I have seen under/around $100 tend to have little issues with the optics such a scratches or light fungus. So I think above that is realistic currently. Actually, there are a few online now ranging from $165-$499(overpriced for the latter IMO). As mentioned in the thread link above, some ask unrealistic prices and my feeling is that they are not really that rare at all.

    lomo foton 37-140mm is exactly what you are wanting and even has an interchangeable mount. In fact it is designed to work with a anamorphic front as well. It is designed for s35 so not sure if it will cover the sensor. However with all lenses on a still camera there is the issue that you cannot adjust back focus. For a lens to be parfocal its flange focal distance must be correct which could be a problem. The foton does have a back focus adjustment as I recall.
     
    I loved my foton before its aperture failed, they go for $600-$800.

    olympus OM 35-70 f3.6 is supposed to be good. the front element does not rotate either. I haven't gotten around to buying one, so haven't actually tried it though
    You can get one is nice condition for less than $100

    Bold got a reaction from Thai Reisje in My first Anamorphic lens, some advice please ;)   
    Congrats on the anamorphic lens!
    I had been wondering about that too, but after some searching I found an earlier Helios (the 44, not the 44-2) on eBay in great shape with a gorgeous golden coating.  My understanding is that there were a lot of different 44-2's manufactured over many years, some may have the same coating. But keep an eye out for the original 44 too.
    Cheers,
