The Kowa ‘Evolution’ Anamorphic lenses are based on the original optical designs of the vintage and rare Kowa Prominar Anamorphics.

The lenses are built in a brand new compact, lightweight housing with modern cam driven internal focus mechanics. The focus throw has changed significantly compared to the originals. The Evolution lenses offer a 200° angle on the focus ring and a 100° on the aperture ring.

The look and bokeh of the Kowa ‘Evolution’ lenses match the genuine anamorphic look of the original Kowa Anamorphic lenses. The optical design of the Evolution lenses is based on their original optical design and the front anamorphic principles. They are low in contrast and warm in colour and can be made to flare.

The 80mm front diameter is perfect for the use of a clip-on matte box and a 77mm thread has been added for screw-in filters. That makes the Evolution anamorphic lenses for handheld, Steadicam or drone camera work.
