Hi I'm looking for a reasonabely good lens for my KINOR 35H, that eventually can be converted to anamorphic.
Roundfront primes would be first choice ovviously, but I have to compromise with my budget.
I'm not so sure if the LOMO 35 OPF-7-1 (25-250 zoom) will give a good sharpness, how is it compared to the COOKE 25-250 Zoom (1st generation)?
I found this one on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item2304d84083
can this COOKE be used with the rear anamorphic lomo atachment?
I'm also considering a FOTON 37-140 with front anamorphic atachment, but I have some doubts abouth picture quality. I have a feeling that a front anamorphic atachment will not work as well over the whole zoomrange like a rear atachment, maybe somebody knows more about it.

thanks
Daniel

I forgot, the COOKE zoom on ebay looks strangely non symetric, is this normal? http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item2304d84083
