FS: Isco Micro 2x Anamorphic Lens for GH4 / GH5 / DSLR with clamp & 58mm thread SHARP!

Recommended Posts

Hello, all. I'm selling this Isco Micro Cinemascope Ultra-Star 2X Anamorphic Lens with extras. All the pictures are of the actual items for sale.

This lens is in excellent condition, with 100% pristine glass. No scratches, cracks, dents or fungus on the glass. It looks and works like new. The only reason I'm selling it is because I purchased it for a project that fell through and is no longer happening, so I don't need it anymore.

The Isco Micro 2X is super sharp, and works well with cameras that shoot 4K resolution or higher. It shoots in the classic 2x anamorphic stretch ratio and achieves the coveted "waterfall blurred background" and "oval bokeh" and horizontal lens flares from so many iconic Hollywood films. Works perfectly with the Panasonic GH4 & GH5 as well as any camera that can shoot in a 4:3 ratio (like Canon cameras with Magic Lantern installed).

You can attach it to any taking lens with a 58mm thread using the included clamp. I successfully used it with the Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 lens on a GH4 in 4K anamorphic. Anything wider than 35mm and you'll get vignetting. I also tested it with the Voigtlander 42.5mm lens and even at f/0.95 it still retained its sharpness! Please note that you need to adjust focus on both the anamorphic lens as well as the taking lens in order to be able to focus on objects.

I've included some tests images I took with the lens on my GH4 with the Voigtlander 42.5mm f/0.95 lens. The first image with the guy shows you how the footage looks in camera at a 4:3 aspect ratio. The second image of the guy shows what it looks like after stretching the footage to the traditional 2.40:1 aspect ratio for final exhibition. The next three images show what the lens flares look like when pointing a light directly into the lens. The actual 4K test footage is here:https://vimeo.com/207839150/58efb6a85b

The front of the lens has a 67mm thread. I'm including a set of four dipoters with a 67mm thread, as well as a 67mm to 77mm step-up ring with 77mm lens cap.

The lens is sharp at any aperture, even wide open. Focuses down to 3 feet (0.9 meters) without diopters. With the included set of 67mm diopters you can achieve much closer focus.

If you're looking for a new look for your footage, this is it. Gorgeous, sharp, cinematic footage without spending thousands on Hollywood lens rentals.

Included in the sale:

  • Isco Micro Cinemascope Ultra-Star 2X Anamorphic Lens
  • Lens clamp w/ 58mm rear threads
  • Set of four 67mm dipoters in a carrying case (not pictured)
  • 67mm to 77mm step-up ring
  • Front and rear lens caps

Selling for $675 with free shipping! PayPal only, USA only. Sold as is. Contact me via email at [email protected] to purchase the lens.

Thanks for looking!

      I'm selling a copy of the smallest Anamorphic lens in the world, the Baby Hypergonar 1.75x. It's been said there were only about 50 of these ever made. Designed by the OG, Henri Chretien, and made in 1957.
      It is in great condition. Comes with a little black carry case. Really lovely copy, no scatches, fungus, haze. Body is in great shape. There are a few small coating blemishes on the front, but they are so hard to see I couldn't even capture them in the pictures, and they don't show up in performance. 
      Can be used by just focusing your taking lens or in combination with a single focus variable diopter. Neutral unique flares and beautiful rendering.
      - PRICE: $1500 USD
      - LENS NAME: Baby Hypergonar
      - CONDITION: Near Mint Optics, Mint Body
      - PAYMENT METHOD: PayPal
      - LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA, USA
      - FEES & SHIPPING: PayPal fees and shipping paid by buyer.
       
      Please PM me if interested

      FOR SALE: Moller 32/2x Anamorphot
      Anamorphic Adapter
      In Good Condition 6/10
      $500
      Cosmetic: 6
      Has scratches and wear on outer body. But none of the cosmetic imperfections affect the over-all lens performance. No dents or damage to the lens body that affect performance. The focus is a little stiff, but nothing a tune up and grease won’t fix. The front focus gear does need to be lubed, greased and the front element could be dialed in with a focus chart for sharper image. But the lens functions properly.   
      Optical: 7
      Has a scratch on the front element and cleaning marks on the rear element. It also has wear on the inner housing that gives veiling when hit with direct beam of light. I don’t have all of the equipment or time to tune up this lens but I can send tests shots if requested. 
       
      Notes:
      Very unique Moller 32/2x black non-coated version. Old lens with imperfections, but the imperfections of this lens make it very unique and give it a very unique character.
