Will it cover the height of most 2x anamorphic lenses?

Dragon sensor is 30 x 15.8mm. 4-perf 35mm anamorphic area is approx. 22 x 18mm so 2X anamorphic lenses would cover the 1.20 : 1 area of the Dragon sensor since you don't use the full width of the sensor to get a 2.40 image once unsqueezed from 1.20 : 1. But since the Dragon sensor is 15.8mm tall instead of 18mm tall you are getting a slightly tighter field of view from the lens.

Doing some rough math, I get about a 1.2 crop factor with 2X anamorphic lenses on the Dragon sensor if you will using a 1.20 : 1 area, so basically if you like the view of a 50mm anamorphic on a 35mm camera, you'd use a 40mm anamorphic to get something similar in view.
