I am looking for a mattebox for a 24.5mm Elite anamorphic prime lens. The lens has about a 140mm front diameter and is very wide with an adjusted fov at about 12mm. Any recommendations on a mattebox that would work for something this wide? Thanks in advance.
Mattebox for wide angle anamorphic?

Why have a matte box at all for that wide of a lens? You can tape any filters directly to the lens and flag any flares.

True, I really don't want to have a matte box for it but need to get ND on it. Since I am going to be using the lens a lot, I think I might want something a little more elegant than tape though.

That's fine. We are always taping filters onto lenses for various reasons - in an elegant way, of course!

I think I am going to do this for the time being, and focus on getting some ND's - I don't have any large enough at the moment. Probably just 2 to start with. The lens is T2.1 and shooting 24P at 800 iso, I am considering getting a 3 and 7 stop so I can stack and have 3, 7, and 10 stop but would love any suggestions on that front.
