    Front element being spherical doesn't mean it's rear anamorphic. all of the Master, Scorpio and Atlas anamorphics have a "spherical" front element and none of them have anamorphic in the back.

    I don’t mean spherical in shape (though it is), but that it looks like the element behind the front isn’t ovalish at all either. Granted it is hard to be 100% certain by that pic.

    And why would an element in anamorphic lens be oval? (since this isn't a medical forum I assume that's what you meant)

    It would be an oval because it’s 2x taller than its width (just look down the barrel of any 2x front anamorphic lens and you’ll know what I mean)... whereas spherical would be equal tall/wide...

    As for “ovular”, is that bad English (being that “oval” is egg shaped)?... oval-ular? Ovalish... oval-shaped? Feel free to take your pick! I switched to ovalish because that didn’t give an autocorrect suggestion.

    SLR Magic released an anamorphic adapter, but it's dual focus and it has a 1.33x squeeze. I wish I could be impressed:

    I'm surprised that Lomography hasn't done anything anamorphic. I told them a couple of years ago to release an M mount camera with anamorphics (even if there was no rangefinder). The lenses could be T4 or T5.6 as long as they were good quality. They haven't listened, it seems, and are more interested in lo-fi Instax Dianas right now.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    Would be great if Samyang could give us a release date. Or even what year, that would be great.
