Whilst Canon L lenses are like a fleet of company Lexus cars. This isn’t really what I want in my films. I need something different. Something with character.
For this reason I’ve long been using anamorphic lenses. I recently shot some test footage with the Iscorama 54 anamorphic. This is essentially an Iscorama 36 but instead of a 36mm rear element it is 54mm. Even though the whole lens is double the weight, not as sharp and almost triple the size I like it because it has character.
