P+S TECHNIK, world leader for rehousing and servicing lenses, announce the remake of the vintage KOWA Anamorphic lenses.
Sample lens is on display at Cine Gear Expo 2017, booth 83. The P+S TECHNIK Anamorphic Evolution lenses are based on the original optical design of the KOWA Anamorphic and the P+S TECHNIK's sturdy, but rehousing for KOWA Anamorphic lenses.
The original KOWA Anamorphic prime lenses have been produced until the 1970s and usually for four different primes are available: 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm. "We got the feedback that the original focal range is limited so we added two additional focal length, a wide-angle and a telephoto 135mm, which match the Look of the original set. So we named them Evolution lenses." says Alfred Piffl, founder of P+S TECHNIK and continues "We aim to offer the cinematographer professional products to tell stories - (e)motion pictures - whether published on silver screen, television or video stream. CinemaScope or wide screen is a wonderful format visualizing stories."
