Anamorphic Lens experience : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

Does anyone have any significant experience using either the Century or Optex anamorphic lenses? If so, please post.

I'm planning on buying the century lens for my sony vx-1000 in december, however, I'm going to test it out sooner than that. I'll let you what I think. One thing that you may already know is with the anamorphic lens you can't use your zoom all the way, only 2/3. Also, you can't use it with other lenses, such as a wide angle diopter.

I have had great experience with the Optex lens. I have shot 2 short films and a commercial with it and acheived amazing results. There is a sample still shot of the lens in action. I am selling my lens. If interested email me.
