    NAC 40mm Anamorphic located in Hollywood, LA, CA. Made by the same company as the Kowa and Todd AO anamorphics, this lens is a close character match to the Kowa 40mm but a little sharper and faster. Works great with any Kowa set.

    This lens is very small, perfect for steadicam or gimbal work. It also has great blue flairs and swirly bokeh.

    Optics are in good condition with no haze, scratches or fungus. There is some dried up balsam cement in the front triplet lens which is common for NAC 40mm's, but it's not in the optical path so shouldn't affect the image.

    Focus is tack sharp. Custom 95mm front ring, geared focus ring and PL conversion have been added to the lens, with fitting lens caps. There was also a custom ring for the f-stop, but it's since fallen off. Also comes with an HPRC foam case and a carrying pouch.

    PRICE - $13,500

    Wire only. Buyer pays shipping and fees. Happy to allow an in-person inspection if you're in LA.

    Yeah,

    Here's a 0 budget music video I did with it a few years ago, I think I shot it all at T2.8ish at 8k on Helium

    and here's a still from a short I shot with it, also 8k helium:



    And this is from the previous owner, shot on his Alexa Mini, which shows off the lens a little better than my work with it:






    When I received it from the previous owner, the elements weren't correctly aligned, so I serviced it and it's quite sharp now.
