All of these lenses have been modified by Iron Glass Adapters to flare bluish colors so the lens set leans more to the "suspense, thriller, sci-fi and dramatic horror genres. As well as music videos, documentary and experimental projects will love these lenses.
What is anamorphic about these lenses?
1. Bokeh - It is oval shaped when the aperture is wide open. This is due to a laser cut 3d-printed oval shape put in front of the aperture to give the oval shaped bokeh.
2. Flares - These lenses flare horizontally. There is a string in the aperture that creates these flares. It also means that any perfect circles of confusion will have a string going vertically through it.
3. Flare Colours - These lenses interior barrel's are coated a cyan/blue/magenta colour that gives the flares a powerful mega blue.
4. Focus Cogs
5. Declicked Iris
The anamorphic disk inside the lens is taking away light. My guess is it's about 3/5 of a stop of light. By doing so, it adds colour. They all have strings going through the oval shaped bokeh and most of them match, but the ones that don't provide a cool effect of their own.
Zenitar 16mm f/2.8
This is a fisheye lens. It's very interesting and provides a unique look when using wide open.
Mir-20M: 20mm f/3.5
I like having the option of this lens. Especially when I shoot music videos, this lens is #1. Nobody has ever made a 20mm anamorphic. As far to my knowledge, anamorphics don't go wider than 32mm, so having a fake of this is something you can't find anywhere else.
-Flares look great!!!!
-It is very sharp
-Widest Ultra Wide Anamorphic
-Great for gimbals
-skin tones look great
-flares are never overpowering
-Godfather of the Anamor-fake's
-Did I mention the flares!!!
Mir-10A: 28mm f/3.5
This lens is cool. I don't always use it because it flares a bit darker than the other ones. I still like how sharp it is and how smooth the iris and focus pull is.
-Flares are Dark Blue (Excellent for sci-fi; match this lens with the 85mm for closest match)
-Awesome for gimbals
-Very mysterious/archaic look
Mir-1B: 37mm f/2.8
This and the 135mm are my two favorites of the "anamorfakes." This lens has a beautiful softness that allows your focus to appear out of focus yet is very forgiving. It's softness lends itself to a movie shot in the 70s. It's also one of the most popular lenses made in Russia, next to the 58mm Helios. Afterall, it was Mir's #1 lens!
-Lens looks gorgeous
-Most authentic anamorphic look
-Very forgiving to pull focus
-Has a beautiful softness
-Great skin tones
Zenitar 50mm f/2
A great alternative with a different bokah pattern than the Helios for a heavier effect than the Helios.
Helios 77: 50mm f/1.8
Was told this lens was very sharp. I expect it's a similar look to other Helios.
Helios 44-2: 58mm f/2
This lens is famous throughout the world for it's swirly bokeh and sharpness. For that reason, this is an excellent lens, although I find it a tad too sharp to pass as a realistic anamorphic look. The sharpness and the flares clash, in my opinion. Some people might love this lens. It's still a classic and especially on a full frame sensor, that's when you'll really see the bokeh swirl the most.
-Beautiful skin tones
-Great for model photography
-Excellent in low light
Jupiter-9 85mm f/2
Jupiters are known for their telephotos and this lens is sharp and has nice contrast. It flares differently than the others, but pairs nicely with the 28mm. The flares are a bit more intense, which is why I would pair it with the 28mm which has the darker blue flares.
-Good in low light
Kaleinar 100mm f/2.8
This lens feels like a nice, sharp, welcome edition to the anamorphic lineup!
Jupiter 37A 135mm f/3.5
This lens flares great! It's another of my favorites. I'd pair this with the 37mm and shoot films all day. It simply looks very cinematic.
