All the Moeller lenses are attachments. The Möller 2x is the same design as the Kowa 16D so i would say that they pretty much ARE projection lenses. You are correct regarding the 1,5. It creates a 1:2 aspect ratio. These lenses will not be hassle free but they do a good job for the money. Try even getting a good ISCO lens now for well under 2000 $. If you don't want anamorphic 16mm projection i would just forget about it and crop.
I think I like the idea of the Bolex lens because it comes in a frame that screws into the c mount. Im guessing any other lens would need fabrication to build an attachment to fit to the camera. I am curious about sharpness and quality when using these lenses and I dont even know if they will work with the preset switars. There is so much I dont know!

The 16mm anamorphic projection lens is supported by a home-made ring attached to a rod base I got with another camera (a Pentaflex 8). Same principle can be applied to 16mm cameras.
Martin Baumgarten has a good webpage describing relatively cheap anamorphic lens options for small formats:

There are 16mm and 8mm versions of this lens, this one is the 16mm.
Its a brilliant lens to use, produces an image thats as sharp as the taking lens.
Pm me for anymore details.

I am currently using the Bolex kit as shown above. I find it very straight forward to use on my RX5 with 13x viewfinder. I have the anamorphic matched to the 26mm f1.1 marco switar. I decided going down this path to avoid some of the problems associated with super 16 conversion. Keep look at ebay, they do pop up.

I have been contacted about my Bolex Anamorphot lens via email, so I have attached a few images.

I'm shooting in 16mm with my bolex for a while now but I just discover anamorphot lensand it really looks beautiful...
So right now I can't live more without testing anamorphot sensations!
Do you know where I can provide any Anamorphot setup for my camera? If anyone reading this topic sell some feel free to get in touch...
Is the projection lens solution a really good solution? I guess it's cheaper but what about the quality?
Thanks for helping.
