Dear friends,

i'm pretty sure that if the product to be announced is called "5Dc", it's gonna be our beloved 5D Mk4 with the hoax firmware we were all expecting in mid April 2017 (i still beg for this firmware to be announced for Mk4), priced in the mid 4K to 5K region. In simple english, if Canon is to announce a 5Dc, they're just gonna fool us again in order to milk every single cent out of our pockets, offering nothing really innovative, with no dollar spent on R&D. It's gonna be something like the "new" A7R III. Practically, yesterday's news with a... brand new Type-C USB...ah, and a second SD card for Sony... ;D

Have a nice evening from summery Greece.

Yours
Yiannis

I wonder what a Canon anamorphic lens would look like....and how much it would cost?

A lot.

Probably double that...
But, what would the lens be?  What focal length(s)?

Is there such a thing as a zoom anamorphic lens?

And a real noob question...why would it have to be so $$$ to make an anamorphic lens?

What is so special about them that makes them so pricey?

C

The glass makes them expensive. The novelty will make them expensive. And the uplift for the Canon name will make them even more expensive ;)

LOL...

Well, lessee.....sure, the Canon name will increase the price on an anamorphic lens(es).

But as far as class, is what makes making anamorphic glass more expensive than any other lens? Same glass as a substance, and likely same type coatings, no?

And sure,it will be a bit of a niche lens, but then again, I'd argue that other lenses out there are somewhat niche, a bit expensive, but not $24K expensive....take T/S lenses.  I'd have to guess they aren't racking up huge numbers of sales when viewed in context of all other lenses, or even just other "L" lenses Canon sells, but they are not out of reach of most photographers.

I've been playing around with anamorphic....I have the Anamorpot  adapter that is fun, but a bit of a PITA when changing host lenses, etc.

I found the moondog labs adapter for iPhones is a neat little unit that seems to work pretty well.....

So, it is really fun for video and I think more folks would shoot with it if it were more of a regular configuration lens for regular DSLR's, and not priced into the stratosphere....

Hoping a Canon one would be reasonable, as far as a "L" lens can be reasonable...hahaha.

Also...can a zoom anamorphic lens be made, so that you wouldn't have to buy multiple ones for different focal lengths, especially when just starting out.
