​How did you manage to screw that adapter in? Wasn't the front thread supposed to be some irregular, non-photographic standard?

​It's a 55mm front thread.  The wide angle adapter is 58mm, so I got a 55mm to 58mm adapter.

I know it's been talked about in another thread, but I stumbled upon this guy selling modified B&H anamorphic projection lenses for an unreasonable price: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Anamorphic-Lens-SINGLE-FOCUS-2X-sharp-and-fast-light-Iscorama-/171557551779?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27f1a07ea3

Towards the bottom of the listing there is a video illustrating the mechanism. 

I asked him exactly how he did the modification, because it was curious to see that he used the same front housing, to which he replied: "Hello, I had a machine shop remove the screw threads and add a rubber O ring so that you can quickly move through the focus range. You can soften the resistance by adding a lubricant to the O ring, or even remove it entirely if you like."

Now, I'm not sure how this works exactly, how safe it is, or how practical it is to push-pull the focus ring like that, but it seems easier than building a different housing with a different thread.

Just thought it's some information anyone wanting to buy this nifty lens should know.

The front element is just a diopter really.  So a push-pull modification would work just fine.  But then you can't use a follow focus.  Yeah that guy on ebay is really trying to rip people off.
