Lens makers SLR Magic are working on an anamorphic lens prototype, and Edwin Lee has published some results for review, shot on the GH2:
According to Edwin:
As mentioned above, this is a prototype lens. I cannot reveal images of it but I can say it’s light and compact. Built to operate like a single lens, it allows shooters to pull focus to a certain degree. It also has a neat close-up function that allows you to shoot up to about 1 meter.
Right now, the flares are a little too scattered for my liking – I’m just too used to the Hypergonar and Lomo styles. However, SLR Magic has yet to apply any lens coating so I hope to see something that suits my taste.
