Hello all,

I just got a 50mm Lomo anamorphic Square front lens Bas 4-15. It seems to have 2 or three scales on it. There is a scale that starts at 1.6 meters. Another scale starts at 0.5m. --Then there is a raised metal square with a red line on it, it's scale starts at 1.1 meters.

I know there is a two diopter set that screw onto the front (which I have on order from Rafcamera). I assume the 0.5 mark is for the diopter marked 0.5m. There is also a 1-2.5m diopter. Does that use the raised red mark? Anybody personal experiences with these lenses?
I plan to finally do a test soon.

I guess this rules out any of those "Spielbergian" (first heard it on this site :lol: ) shots with this lens. It's native close focus (5ft, 4in) is much too far away for those wide shot to big closeup push-ins. I'll have to try that with my 75mm round front. You can get a head and neck closeup with it without diopters. It focuses more smoothly too.

Thanks in advance,

Steve Zimmerman
