    Ha! Looks like I'm not the only one to make that connection. Great minds think alike, and all that.

    The Xeen spherical lenses use T apertures beginning with T1.5. That prototype is using f/1.4. Don’t know how relevant that is but if it holds up, they’re not releasing them as Xeen Anamorphic primes.

    I’m still undecided about that real budget alternative from SLR Magic that I mentioned in the SLR Magic thread. The SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33x-65 may not embrace all the effects of a real 2x Anamorphic prime, but I’m not chasing that aesthetic as much as just making the most of every pixel on the URSA Mini 4.6K 16:9 sensor and it does that with a hint of the Anamorphic look. The downsides are the recommended minimum aperture T5.6 and the best practice to focus both the prime taking lens and the adapter to the same distance.

    Yeah that would kill it for me, I'd rather just crop.

    2x anamorphic or bust, IMO. These days we're beyond the need to squeeze every pixel out of a sensor. So the appeal to me is not about using every photosite I have available. It's about the aesthetic and at 1.33x I'm not seeing enough aesthetic to justify the pain that is dual focusing.

    I have in the past agreed with that argument, as I can’t afford the real thing. I do like the 4608x1920 raw window with the spherical APO primes, but thought the 1.33x-65 adapter might add some character very inexpensively and get me to first base. I leave the home run to you! I’m glad it’s all about the aesthetics as that’s the way it should be. At this time I might take a baby step though. I’ll play Vermeer with tighter control of my lines to your Dali where there are almost no straight lines. I’ll play Newton to your Einstein.
