Red Dragon with FM + Kowa

Looks very nice. A tiny bit of softness visible, but beyond that, there is very little here that distinguishes this from a high-end anamorphic prime lens. Hell, if you threw on an actual Kowa anamorphic monoblock prime lens, you would dealing with a lot more distortion and breathing. And the Lomos I have at work would be struggling in this desert environment.

While the iscoramas are good, their long-standing status as the "top dog" adapter style anamorphic is due in no small part to the fact that for a very long time they were the only single focus option. Examined on sharpness, chromatic aberrations, build quality etc, Personally I think the Kowas win out, and now they're single focus as well. 

Both are good, but Iscoramas cost $4,000. A decent Kowa with clamps and a Rangefinder can cost less than half of that.

In comparison price wise, absolutely Kowa and single focus option is much cheaper.
