Zeiss Ikon Anamorphot 22/1.5x In: ANAMORPHIC Posted December 19, 2018 On 12/17/2018 at 11:24 AM, Bioskop.Inc said: Nice lens & pretty rare, so well done for buying it. A few tips about infinity & some vintage lenses (especially the Helios) - I've found that sometimes the taking lenses infinity mark is slightly off & you might need to dial it back a little (mm if anything). Test the taking lens, get the infinity set properly & tape it down so it doesn't move or remember the mark - this should sort your infinity problem out with some vintage lenses, it's certainly the case with most of my Russain lenses. The Meyer 100m is a really nice lens, one of my favourites for colour/contrast, not always the sharpest but I don't care about that nonsense. I've found that the Nikon Ai-s 50mm F1.8 pancake lens is a really good one for anamorphics - really cheap too! Another one to think about is the Super-Takumar 55mm F1.8 - small & sharp (don't get the SMC one, the Super-Tak version is single coated so will be good for flares etc.). The normal rule of thumb for taking lenses for these anamorphic attachments is to find one with a simple lens recipe - the Helios 44-2 is normally a winner with most of these attachments, but if it's not working for you then you'll need to experiment. One thing to take account of, if this is really a Baby Iscorama rebranded etc. (as is claimed in this thread), then wide open they are dreamy soft. Thanks for the detailed reply! Much appreciated. Yeah I've noticed that if I focus just off infinity on a few of my lenses it does seem a bit sharper. Especially on my Canon FDs. Taping it down at that point is a good idea I didn't think of that! Yes I'd like to try that Nikon I've not used that! So many lenses! I wish I worked in a vintage lens shop sometimes so I could test them all ha. See which ones work and which don't. I had a Tak but I sold it because it's radioactive and I'm weird about stuff like that! Kind of wish I'd tested it with some Anamorphics though. I sold it before I really got into anamorphic shooting. I'm pretty sure it's an Ikon...... Well I hope it is! what colour are the flares of the Baby Iscorama? While I have you here do you have any experience with Leica and Iscoramas? I have an Iscorama Cinegon as well as my Ikon and was thinking about investing in some Summicron-M glass. I've always wanted a nice Leica set anyway for my stills but if it works well with my Iscorama then thats a bonus. Ive been speaking to Christopher at Van Diemen and he said he has actually made conversions with Leica glass integrated into the new rehoused body of the Iscorama making it a prime lens able to change appature obviously. If people are doing that then I'm thinking they must be a good match...... I still think my favourite lens with my Iscorama is the Helios 44-2. Like you said for me that's the winner. But if you have any experience with Leica and Anamorphics please let me know.
