The 85mm T2 1.8x Full-Frame Anamorphic Lens from Vazen creates enhanced anamorphic flares and a dramatic cine-style aspect ratio for your footage. This lens features user-interchangeable PL and Canon EF mounts, providing compatibility with an array of full-frame cameras like open-gate ARRI models and the RED MONSTRO 8K.

This sharp 85mm prime provides a 1.8x anamorphic squeeze and an ultrawide 50° horizontal field of view. The lens creates a cinematic 2:39:1 aspect ratio with 4:3 sensors and compared to a 2x lens, creates less framing to crop out when used with 16:9 sensors.

Asked by: Ravinder

Will it work well with a Red Raven ?
Asked by: Anthony
The Vazen Full-Frame Anamorphic Lens is meant for Vista Vision sensors like the RED Monstro but it will cover the RED Raven Super35 sensor.
