Hi guys,

I've recently purchased Panasonic anamorphic adapter LA7200G. I attached it to the normal AF 18-55mm and 55-200mm VR lenses, but they fail to give me sharp images. Is that the lenses I'm using? or the adapter that's not sharp?
But, on youtube, i've checked many vids in which they use LA7200G and successfully attained sharp imagery. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance!

You are missing a f/16 on the lens. Anamorphic lenses are not easy to build, and they don't just screw on to any old zoom and perform well. Google over to DVXuser to things like Iscorama and Kowa and Singer for long, long discussions. This forum is relatively new and not the best place to repeat what has already been written about extensively elsewhere. good luck.
