Unknown "lookalike 16D" lens

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I have this anamorphic lens but I can't really know what it is exactly. Who can tell?

It's exactly similar to a Kowa/Sankor/Singer 16D (and the "72mm Front Filter Ring" works on it), but it's only written on "Japan 2X anamorphic lens for BELL & HOWELL". Is it better or cheaper than the others Kowa/Sankor/Singer?

My other question is: would it need an achromat or is it good enough to work "nude"? (I would like to try an "okina achromatic close up +0.4" with this anamo and have maybe a sharper image.) Would it work inevitably better with an Okina, or not?

 

Thanks a lot!

It's a "Tokina" achromat. It does sharpen the image but more so is to help you get closer minimum focus. 

 

"Tokina" yes, sorry for the bad "copy and paste". Thanks Lucian!
A guy told me that this lens is a Sankor 16D even if it's not written on. He told me too that it's good enough to work without the Tokina and use a single element achromat (I'm talking about sharpness not about closer focus).

So what do you think about it? Do agree? Is it exactly a Sankor 16D? Would a Tokina overkill it?

 

Thanks.

IMO, looks like no better than Isco integrated project lens, in terms of optics and wide angle. The Isco lens can go with 85mm in FF. This lens looks need above 135mm in FF.

      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
