my first posting - so: Hello!

It looks like - fingers crossed - that I will be working on a big doc next year. And so I started thinking about how to shoot it.
First: It will be a cinema production. Like we all know, that doesn't mean there is tons of cash but the film is meant to be for the big screen. 4k is no must-have. Anyway...
Most of the shots will be indoor. So only natural and some minor other light-sources. Basic stuff all in all. I need a camera that has decent low light quality, like the FS100, but can also handle anamorphic lenses... or at least give me the possibility to attach an EVF that can handle cinemascope (if the camera monitor can't).

Overall it's not really decided to shoot it in cinemascope, actually it's also not really handy shooting it having no zoom, but we just love the look of it.

So.. to break it down:

What would be a decent anamorphic-camera-setup?
I do have several anamorphic lenses here, like the Kowa 8z, the Iscorama 36 and some others, they have all been mounted on DSLR but for that project I want to eliminate DSLRs. As they gave me a pretty hard time recently.

Can the F3 handle anamorphic glass?

thanks!
