Lomo Round Front 2:1 anamorphics are vintage Russian lenses made in the 1970s and 1980’s.
These lenses produce all the beautiful anamorphic characteristics DPs are looking for including classic oval bokeh and stunning "blue streak" lens flares. These vintage lenses will also give you gorgeous skin tones and when shot wide open, have slightly lower contrast compared to modern glass. Do yourself and your project a favor: don't waste your time with anamorphic lens adapters, blue streak filters or oval-shaped aperture disks. Get the real thing and make your project truly special with visuals only vintage front-anamorphic lenses can give you.
In Lomo Round-Front anamorphic lenses, the anamorphic element is between the spherical assemblies, and focus is controlled by a pair of spherical elements at the very front of the lens. This design produces minimal lens breathing when pulling focus.
The lenses are also relatively compact and light-weight. They can be hand-held no problem especially the 50mm and 75mm.
