Last Week End with Iscorama on my GH3

I visit my brother, niece and sister in law, and I met in Toulouse Olivier, a anamorphic lenses collector. He lent me for this week end one of his Iscorama. It was the first and hope not the last time that I have this lens in my hand. It's working very well, sharp, and usable for closed shots without a diopter.

It's nice to see your results with the lovely iscorama.  to me a wonderful tool.  the low light anamorphic king.  sharp enough at very fast apertures and no light loss.  When you finally pull the trigger on an iscorama I think you will love the flare factory modifeid helios44 I sent Andrew Reid (optimised to make iscorama a lot more rustic and lower contrast).

I have a question about the flares at about 0:33 on your video... I noticed that in the right hand corner there is a straight, rainbow type, 45 degree angle flare. Do you see this to a greater degree when you shine a light directly in the lens? I'm wondering, because when I use any other taking lens on my Iscorama, other than the original, I get this straight 45 degree flare, if the light source is bright enough. If I'm using the original 50mm, I don't get this weird flare. I have some slight lens separation in my lens(but very little), so I thought this mite cause it, but I don't know. Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks Richard, and yes I have to order one of your lens, but for the moment I save money because I'm going to shoot from next monday two weeks of Manhattan in anamorphic... :)

I'm sorry I don't know, maybe a particularity of your lens
