In the set is 40mm T2.3, 50mm T2.3, 75mm T2.8, 100mm T3.4
Each lens has a focus ring and solid PL mount.

yes price and covers 4k at least?

Any 35mm 2x anamorphic glass will cover 5k anamorphic on epic just fine.

Of the 4-5 different anamorphic primes i had the chance to see project kowas had the greatest coverage area by far and slightly sharper than comparable cineovision, jdc glass of that time. best-buy for the money no doubt. soft wide open but sharpen rather quickly and corners look 'nice' at a t4... little bit of distortion on the 40mm, they breathe mostly on the x-axis, so im sure you'll get a little bit of the 'mumps'. easy to flair, point sources look like spikey sea-urchins and the horizontal flair stretches sharply from corner to corner.
I would buy them in a heart beat but I don't need to anymore!! you'll see.... soon there will be more kowas in LA than lomos.
the japanese invasion.
tom, darryl didn't tell you they are reverse gear???
just kidding :)

Darryl...Thanks for the purchase. I look forward to receiving them soon. So Excited!
As Mario commented, Their will be another set of Kowas in Los Angeles. I have plans for them to be in New Orleans, Dallas, & Houston most of the time since they don't have a lot of anamorphic's their.
I also have another set of Lomos that just arrived along with (2) Foton anamorphic zooms 37-140mm.

We just got the first out of 5 Hawk anamorpics C's delivered from Darryl. All I can say is the lens was all that we hoped for, was delivered as promised and Darryl is they kind of guy you want to buy lenses from. Very up front and the lenses he can not reach through his connections is not worth looking for.
5 out of 5 lens dealer stars in my book.
Here i a pick the delivered item on wheels:
