Hi everyone!

I would like to know what anamorphic lenses (aside from the rare Bolex ones) can be fit to a Bolex?
Are any of the Sankor/Kowa/ISCO ok?

There seems to be alot of stuff to know and I feel like it's going over my head :wacko:
Before I spend a fare bit on some lenses that prove not workable, could someone please name a few and the alterations needed?

Thanks alot

Harry

The limiting factor is the lens, not the camera. The anamorphic's rear element needs to be big enough not to vignette.
