  1. Hey, I've got this one on my Bolex, http://www.jjc.cc/index.php/Product/product_info/id/421 Looks like this:
  2. Hey! I think this one will give you some answers http://suggestionofmotion.com/blog/metabones-speed-booster-comparison-mft/
  3. Hey, you're welcome. On ebay everything seems very nice, but please note that this lens does not have a front thread, so you can't mount a diopter or ND filter to it. Also, there is no mention about the widest aperture you can shoot with this lens (before the image gets unusably soft). Well, it was a struggle for me as well, i spent months to make my research, then I ended up between 1.33 and 2x with the 1.5x Baby Moller, so far I'm really satisfied, can't wait to try it out on a commercial project. My next, 2x lens will be something cheaper. There is a lens called "MOSTY", try to search for it on ebay, you can geti it for aprox 300 eur and can shoot wide open. Also, Kowa would be nice. Note, that these lenses are not focusthrough, sou you have to rack (double) focus, or buy an SLR Magic rangefinder to make it singlefocus. In my opinion, kowa + rangefinder is still cheaper than slr magics anamorphot, not as handy and small, but cheaper and has the character. I'm not sure where are you located, but if you're in europe, try this seller: http://www.ebay.com/sch/die_bitsbox/m.html?item=131728005478&hash=item1eab99d966%3Ag%3A8uYAAOSwG-1WwNes&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 He delivers absolutely great lens and service, also his offer changes day by day. Good luck! Alex
  4. The 2x anamorphic lens won't work with focal lengths shorter than 80mm (on fullframe). So Nikon 50mm f1.8 will probably work but the others won't. SLR MAGIC says: So not sure if it will work with the zoom lenses. Like Tweak said, get som cheap vintage lenses, they will do the job. Get a Pentax SMC, old Canon FD's or other lenses. Few more things that you need to be aware of, before buying a 2x anamorphic lens. If you're looking for a true focusthrough anamorphic, SLR magic may be not the one. The lens has 2 modes, Near and Far. You have to set your anamorphic lens attachment according to the focus distance. Using 2x anamorphics won't let you shoot slowmo. The 4:3 mode is accessable only in 4K photo mode. No 1080p! Well, you can shoot with it in 1080p, but your final image will be 3.66:1. You can't go wide with 2x lens. The min. focal length is 80mm (on fullframe). With the 1.33x you can shoot at 40mm (FF). You have to shoot really stopped down to avoid soft image. Some says F5.6-8. These are just few things I found out before I purchased my lens. These are just some downsides, of course it has a brighter side as well You get the oval bokeh, flares and the waterfall look. So, it's your preference
  5. Hey, Bought a Moller few weeks ago. It's an awesome piece of gear, got it with a custom housing and threads. As you can see, it is very hard to pull focus properly. This was shot handheld, without external monitor. Because of the anamorphic lens attachment, there isn't coming too much light throug, so the Gh4's focus peaking does not work very well, so I had to judge the focus just by my eyes. The lens was set to f2.8, but note that there is a speedbooster in the chain as well. The setup was: GH4 + Mitakon Lens Turbo + Canon 85mm f1.8 + Moller 1.5x anamorphot + 0.5 diopter I did not spend much time with the edit...
