Howdy! I've recently got into the idea of film making, always been interested but never had the time or money to do it after 6th form, got a GH1 second hand, some leses and stuff, and some mates who have the same dreams!

Now, I just got an offer for a Schneider Cinelux 2x MC anamorphic adapter and a 70mm projector lens for 50. I've only found one example of it being used on a GH2 so far, and I'd like to try anamorphic, if it worth getting this one?

Thanks!

Better pass on this one. These are mostly designed for projection purposes and are heavy, and do not focus close enough for filming purposes.
There are much better options for filming anamorphic, both at 2x ratio and at 1.5x ratio.

Ok then! I'd read that this one could focus down to 3m, thought it might be ok.
