I know it is almost released, but seems to be a lot of demos on this and it looks interesting.

The adapter is coming out for $899 and a set of 3x diopter lenses for it optional for $299 for close ups.

This video demo from Eyepatch Entertainment, goes through showing how to set it up and use with a Blackmatic camera and is quite intriguing...a lot of trouble to set up, but the images, to me look VERY interesting.

I'd really like to think about getting this lens, to play around with, but need to make sure it will work with the lenses I have, etc.

The site says this about the adapter:
Quote
The adapter has a 77mm front filter thread and a native 62mm rear thread with a 58mm, 52mm, 49mm adapter rings provided. As such it is only suitable for lenses which have a front element size of 50mm or less.

Does anyone know off hand what EF lenses this would work out with? I'll start researching but wondering if anyone knew off hand..

I currently have:

24-105L f/4 lens (kit)
17-40L f/4
70-200 f/2.8 II IS
85mm f/1.8
40mm f/2.8 pancake

I need to start looking up to see what size they are for filters, etc....

Has anyone else heard of this one? Is anyone else out there with a Canon, shooting anamorphic? There was another apparently nice recent release, the Letus lens...that comes in about $1700.  This one appears to be a way to get into shooting anamorphic for a bit more reasonable cost.

Thoughts? Links?

Well, looking so far, from what I can tell, this filter won't work with many of my best lenses. <P>
It appears it will work with my 40mm 2.8 pancake and my 85mm 1.8, but my L lenses are all too large for it to mount to.

Still, VERY interesting, but right now I have a 50L and the 100L macro on my lens list to buy next, so barring a lottery win, I may have to put this on the back burner behind those lenses.

Then again, who knows what will happen one weekend after a few beers and impulse online shopping hits...

:)

I'm keeping my eye on this however, it does look very interesting.
