  1. I’m aware this is a rare item, but I know one was sold here a few months back. I currently have two purple Kowa 8Z lenses in fantastic condition which I would be more than willing to trade to anyone in exchange for this thing. Kowa’s a re lighter, easier, more practical, and give more coverage in shooting anamorphic. I’m filming a short in the vain of "The Robe” (1953) so this lens would be a fantastic fit. Let me know if anyone has one, knows someone who has one, or is interested. Thanks!
  2. I know "highest quality" is a relative term, but regarding sharpness, rear size, focusing, and lack of abberation, which one would you guys say reigns supreme?
  3. Thanks a lot for the info. Do you happen to know how large I can have the front element of the taking lens be for each before the image would start to vignette? Also, I know the Kowa only allows a focal length of about 50mm widest on the taking lens for full frame, but what about the Bolex? No sweat if you don't have this info. Thanks.
  4. I'd like to hear the pros, cons, and overall differences between these two 1.5x anamorphic projection lenses and people's experiences using them.
  5. https://www.ebay.com/itm/384545645331?mkevt=1&mkcid=16&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 Asking Price: $15,000 Rare opportunity here friends, I am currently selling my Todd-AO 35 2x Anamorphic 40-240mm f/4.2 Varifocal Cinema Zoom lens with its original casing. This once in a blue moon piece of glass from the 1970s is used with signs of ware external ware, though in perfect working condition with no loss of optical quality. It is made with a BNCR mount, which may be converted to match any other full frame lens mount which supports BNCR flange depth (IE a PL mount for example). This is a vintage anamorphic cinema zoom lens from the 1970s which comes with its original casing. Todd-AO’s are known for their incomparable violet anamorphic flares matched with a sharp yet distinct image. If this is a lens you can’t let slip by, click the link to my eBay page at the top of the forum. If an eBay account isn’t your thing, feel free to send me a direct message. Other than eBay, I will only accept PayPal. Item will ship once payment has gone through, and I will handle the shipping costs. All sales are final.Feel free to reach out with any further questions!
