Note that this is a brand new P+S Technic lens and housing with new optics manufactured by P+S to match the original KOWA Prominar lenses

Read the case study of a short film shooting with 16:9 sensor and anamorphic lenses

Supplied with focus and iris gears, larger numbering, left right side focus scales, 80mm fronts, improved mechanics than the original KOWA lenses,

The new lenses include new internal focus mechanics and new housings too but stay close to the original compact form factor and light weight of the Kowa Anamorphic primes.

The KOWA Anamorphic prime lenses have been produced until the 1970s. In general for four different focal lengths are available for which P+S TECHNIK offers lens rehousing: 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm.

These rare and popular lenses were renouned for their compact form factor, making them ideal for handheld, steadicam or drone use.  Low in contrast with a warm hue, they can be made to flare easily for a vintage look but the new mechanics make them feel like modern lenses.

77mm threaded front for separate filter.
