"The first series of Hawk anamorphic lenses did consist of Russian glass remounted for greater precision and reliability. The modern line of Hawk anamorphics is manufactured for Vantage Film by Rodenstock GmbH of Munich. AFAIK this began with the Hawk lenses used for EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE (1999).
More about Hawk lenses can be found here:
BTW, they just introduced Hawk V-Lite, a new series of lightweight anamorphic lenses for Steadicam and hand-held cinematography. "

These C-Series are not really used that much anymore, because Vantage came out with the V, V-Plus and V-Lites which are all much better lenses and nothing like the Lomos.
