Wondering if the Lomo FOTON A front anamorphic adapter would be useable with lenses other than the Lomo 37-140. Would anything with an equivalent FOV be able to shoot through this?

Chances are quite good it will work out. Depending on the front of your zoom lens (how close can it get to the Foton-A back), you should get down to about 40mm on the wide side.

Of course, you lose the convenience of coupled focusing with the Foton-A/zoom combination.
The original zoom is not a bad lens to begin with, so it might not be worth the trouble unless you have a really excellent modern zoom to replace with.

The Foton-A plus modern spherical primes should also look excellent IMHO.
