is PLx2-VV extender compatible with ARRI ( Zeiss ) Master Anamorphic ?
Asked by: Damir
According to IBE Optics mechanically it is not a problem. Optically it is not something they have tested. They are also concerned that Master Primes have a very high T-stop and that the quality may changing using the adapter with a higher T-stop than it is designed to handle. There concerns lead us to not recommend this combination.
