What do you think of the Schneider? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Schneider-Kreuznach-FL-70mm-Super-Cinelux-35mm-Cine-Projector-Lens-/282363288310?hash=item41be29daf6:g:H5wAAOSw3v5YpgDS

A local Cinema seems to get rid of one, seems like it has other focus options than these knobs on other Schneiders

The list is just a projector's lens, not including anamorphic lens.

I do not have any experience with anamorphic adapters and I am considering SANKOR 16-B, which from what I have gathered is one of the most popular choices for beginners, and KOWA PROMINAR 8z, i have read that KOWAS are generally sharper. Any advice would be really appreciated

Here's one I've never seen before. An Isco x2 Anamorphic with built-in Aperture (15 Blades Iris) Anyone see anything like this before?

This is just pornography to me :

Too bad the price is too high (and I already have 3+ anamorphic projection lenses :D )

Can't believe how overrated this lens is.

My favourite retailer has posted some new stuff again, curious about thsi one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-x2-Singlefocus-F1-4-Anamorphic-Lens-Anamorphot-warm-flares-1-/132162601288?hash=item1ec5814148:g:O8EAAOSwHMJYG7J8

Damn! Now i've got one of these that i don't use anymore & if they go for this sort of money I might just put it up on ebay!

Is this a real price, as i've been looking at selling off some lenses, but difficult to know what price to put on them?

Anyone know what a Isco Widescreen 2000 &/or a Iscomorphot S8/x2 (fixed focus) go for nowadays?

Hi everyone! I know this is an amazing lens but... Am I the only one thinking this is "a little" overprized??? Anyone have one of this? Is it at the level of Iscorama 36 on terms of sharpness? Is it better or worse than the 16/32? Cheers!

You will find guys in both camps to which is better. But both camps would also agree that 3k for this lens is stupid high.  Spending about $2.5k ( $1.5k + 1k for a Hard Core DNA ) would give a Iscorama 36 a run for it's money. But you have the light weight of Iscorama and easier use of 72mm diopters vs 86mm diopters for extreme close ups.

a normal price for a Bolex 16/32/1.5x is about between  $1,5K and $2K at this moment. Also depending what colour flares it has. The lens in the auction is missing one screw in the front ring, which means that the lens is opened by someone. If that was done by a professional,  you will have all screws. $1K for this lens would be a fair price. If you have luck, you can find higher quality Bolex lenses for less than $1,5K

I sold mine for half this about 6months ago... This is the most overpriced lens on the internet imo, I laugh everytime I see someone getting ripped off.

Hey everyone,
I've been interested in the Hypergonar lenses for some time, and I'm currently considering purchasing one myself.

Would any of you know the differences between the 16 ST, Series C, and Berthiot models? I've been seeing a couple 16 ST lenses recently on ebay and I'd like to get one soon (really like their yellow flares).
Thanks!
