    From the website:
    "LEE Joon-dong, acting chairman of KOFIC, announced the results of several KOFIC supported projects to the approximately 100 industry professionals in attendance. Technological advancements that were presented include DMLITE’s ‘LUMOS Glow Panel 400C’ as well as a new high quality anamorphic lens created by Samyang Optics that comes at a price that is 50% lower than similar products offered by foreign competitors."

    Looking forward to more details and hopefully a complete set of focal lengths will be released.

    "50% lower than similar products offered by foreign competitors."

    This is really broad. What competitors? Zeiss Master Anamorphics at 50k/lens?

    Anyway... lets hope they come out with some nice glass at a nice price point. Looking forward as well.

    I'll volunteer for the first set. Rokinon lenses were good bang for the buck. I hope this is the same!

    Yeah, but there is something wonderful about the unattainability of anamorphic lenses. The only thing that stops it from being a completely overused gimmick is the price point barrier.

    Yeah I have thought about this as well. Hopefully the price will be still high enough, so it does not become a gimmick like Time-lapse, gymbals, drones, slowmotion,...
    Allthough there is this new trend of new filmmakers that only shoot AF (A7III, C200, ...) They will never buy anamorphic or manual lenses.

    The lens pictured seems to be a rear-element anamorphic.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    Ooh hope not, then we would not get the oval bokeh shapes but probably square shapes. Hope there will be info soon :)

    Saw this today. Definitely hope it's front anamorphic, but if the price is right, it'd still be kinda cool (you still get the bokeh and the focal length benefits with rear anamorphics, right?) Also, hope they have stills versions (e.g. $500 anamorphics that cover FF35/VV would be quite disruptive).

    But yeah, judging by the picture, it doesn't look to be PL mount and, unfortunately, it does seem to be rear-anamorphic (the front element seems quite spherical...
