Hi everybody! From my general understanding usually for 35mm lenses the sweet spot of the lens is usually 2 stops down from the widest aperture. I wanted to know if anamorphic lenses have the same features or where the sweet spot of the lens usually is.

Thanks in advance!

It's not a bad rule for anamorphic lenses.  Keep in mind that the more you stop down, the less strong the anamorphic artifacts get because more of the image is in focus.
