Kowa Anamorphics have been produced in the 1970s. Due to their compactness they are often used for action or aerial sequences. The range consists of four primes (40, 50, 75 and 100 mm). The optical design and coating type of the Kowa Anamorphics can not be compared with today´s standards. Heavy flaring, distortion, breathing and softness are inherent to this construction. Unique vintage looks can be achieved by using these lenses on modern digital film cameras.
