Can anyone supply any info on a place where I can buy a Super 8 Anamorphic Lens so that I can shoot 2:35:1 ?

Thanks very much,
Matthew Buick.

Hello!

Look at ebay!
For Super-8 you need an Anamorphot with magnification 2:1 to get the 2.35:1 ratio.
Try to find something like an KOWA 16-H lens.
Also it depends on which (zoom-)lens you would like to use with the anamorphot.
You can find a lot of tips for anamorphic shooting with s8 (and more) on the website of Mr. Martin W. Baumgarten:

happy stretching,

You're in the UK, try the Widescreen Centre.
I doubt you'll get the best price.
