Budget lens maker Vazen has just announced their Vazen 40mm 1.8X Anamorphic lens is now available in native RF mount. This is great news for RED Komodo owners, and Canon EOS C70 shooters looking to get some more affordable anamorphic glass. 

Furthermore, in a recent Instagram post, Vazen assured RED Komodo users that their 40mm T2 1.8x anamorphic lens covers the full sensor in 6K 17:9 mode after a 2.39:1 crop and applying a 1.8x de-squeeze. Some slight vignetting around the corners is also to be expected, but it shouldn’t be a problem for most.

Budget Anamorphic for RED Komodo

Vazen Anamorphic lenses were originally designed and still available in Micro Four Thirds mount gaining significant popularity among Panasonic GH5s, Z CAM E series, and BMPCC 4K creators.

In addition to the 40mm and 65mm Anamorphic, Vazen also makes a compact 28mm Anamorphic lens for MFT.

At this stage the company has announced only the 40mm T2 1.8x anamorphic to be getting the RF mount treatment, however chances are that the 65mm may also get it in the near future.
