I recently got to have a look at Angenieux's 25-250 that can be converted to an anamorphic 44-440 by a similar simple swap of the entire rear optical housing. It seems they're developing a clever modular design range that could usher in an age of modular lenses that can be easily converted for different formats.

The Vimeo page says:
"Filmed entirely on Angenieux's new EZ-1 lens in both VV & S35 configurations on a Red Weapon 8K Vistavision and a Red Dragon 6K."

It should look pretty good then.. .. they seem great for the price.. but I guess you need to buy both to get the full range..

Seems you will get the lens with the two rear optical blocks for $13,500.

But there are two separate lenses arnt there.. a wide angle zoom and the one starting 30mm.. that can both be converted.. or is that wrong.. two is still cheaper than the CN7 I think..

Yes, two separate zooms with this rear optics option.

Let's you have 1 15-40mm T/2 and a 45-135mm T/3 (if you're looking for focal range), or have them both at T/2 if you need the speed and less reach.
Very, very cool looking glass.
