Kowa Prominar Anamorphic-8 2X (Baby Kowa) Silver Ring Version. One of the smallest 2X anamorphic lenses ever made (see photo #3 for size).
Extremely rare in such good condition. This lens can go wide - can take a 40mm taking lens on Super35 format. Can be paired with a Rapido FVD-8A for a tiny 2X anamorphic setup. Classic Kowa purple lens coatings creating beautiful magenta-blue flares. Optics: No scratches, no fungus, no separation, no haze/fog.Generally clear glass with some minor defects. The rear element has some cleaning marks (see photo #9). These defects are not visible in the images taken by this lens. Mechanics: The focus ring resistance is a bit heavy but still rotates throughout the full range. Other than that, no issues. Minor wear and scuffs from use.
