anamorphic set help


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have an option to round out a rental set of Cooke anamorphic i primes (32, 40, 50, 75, 100, 180) with either a 65mm macro or 135mm.

To me the 65mm isn't really a big magnification and as I have a 50mm and 75mm in the set, I can just add a diopter and get similar results (albeit with some chromatic aberration around the edges but that can be nice at times and take the digital edge off.) I get that I can't focus to infinity but the weight penalty of this large lens leads me to be happier with adding diopters to regular primes. Am I missing something here as others have talked about the 65mm being special....?

I'm leaning towards the 135mm as that's a built in close up lens, 100mm not quite there without a diopter and 180 is a little too tight. 

Looking for advice from anyone who has used these lenses a lot. Thanks!
