  1. Haha lucky! Yeah saw one go for $80 the other day, then $150. Seems like $200 US is the middle. Some go for $400, who knows, you can never tell with anamorphics they go up and down and up and up and up lol
  2. That’s awesome, I was looking to pick one up as a cheap second scope since they go for 80-150 US these days. Already got my rectilux and everything else, but it’s nice to know it is an underrated lens and you can create beautiful images with it!
  3. Woah looks like it potentially might exist.
  4. Fantastic work man! This is all with a cheap sun anamorphic adaptor? What are you selling it for?
  5. Never mind seller misspoke. I do find it interesting that rapido has a clamp for a 16f though.
  6. Knowledge base question here. Is there a Kowa 16F? I can find little to no Information on this scope on the internet except for the rapido website that mentions it for a clamp. I may have the opportunity to by one from a seller and I am told that it has same coverage as 16d but is a smaller overall scope. This is very intriguing to me, and I'm trying to find out if this is true or at least get some more information since this seems like a very rare scope. Thoughts?
  7. Bump. Also looking for a 16d if avail.
  8. Congrats dude. Haha I coulda turned around and sold it for a profit if I had the money! Glad you got what you wanted!
  9. That won't be my setup but I guess it doesn't really matter, because if I use a step-down ring its all the same, it really has to do with the optics, and the back of the anamorphic anyway. At least thats how I understand it. So if it works for you, then it should be ok for me even if I use a clamp and do a HCDNA on the front.
  10. Yeah you would need a cinema zoom, or at least a long zoom that is parafocal, and very few cheaper stills lenses are. But it seems like the RMC might be parafocal. Has the 72mm front thread of the RMC given you issues? Ana clamps are usually 52mm, and large front taking lenses are usually recommended against for anamorphic.
  11. @Teemu Fantastic stuff man! Usually zooms are out of question for ana setups, but its nice to know you are using one successfully, and able to utilize some of those in-between focal lengths. I think if people keep adding their thoughts and suggestions this could be a beneficial thread for people that are looking beyond the standard suggestions. This is fantastic.
  12. Found a 75mm Meyer-Optik that plays with anamorphics nicely, unfortunately it is not cheap! https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1297905-REG
  13. Nice input guys. @anton.zimin@gmail.com the Biometar looks really nice, its good to know it plays well with anamorphic. I wonder if there are any obscure focal lengths below 80mm in the high 60's to 70mm range. I remember reading somewhere that there was some nikkor that was 67mm or something like that. I can't remember where I read about it, and I can't find any more information about it.
  14. As everyone knows the main recommendations for taking lenses for an anamorphic adaptor setup are generally the Helios 44-2 (58mm) and the Jupiter 9 (85mm) Since some anamorphic setups offer no vignetting between those two focal lengths I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for taking lenses that would fit between 58mm and 85mm that would be suitable to use for an anamorphic setup. Are there any good 65mm 70mm or more obscure focal lengths anyone has come across? In my search I found a possible vintage winner that is just a little wider then the typical 85mm: Carl Zeiss Jena Biom
