I'm interested to know if anyone has any experience with Panavision's anamorphic lenses and if anyone has any recommendations.

I've shot four features and a short film on Panavision anamorphics, mostly the Primo anamorphic primes, the Primo 11:1 zoom, and a few C-series and E-series.

Have you used the G-Series and/or front anamorphic zooms?

No, those came out after my last anamorphic shoot.

Would you consider shooting anamorphic again?

Sure, am looking for a project where I can do that.  Trouble is that today, producers don't want to budget for 4-perf even if they budget for 35mm film, they automatically assume you are shooting in 3-perf.

Well, you could always shoot digitally couldn't you? Don't the Alexa and Epic cameras have anamorphic modes? Then again, if it's a visual effects show, you could use it as an excuse and say that you can't use 3-Perf.
