Elite Mk IV Anamorphic Prime

The Elites are Russian lenses produced in the late 20th century as a spiritual successor to older Russian anamorphic lenses. They are based on the LOMO Round Front optical designs but with improved mechanics. While they can be considered vintage in their coatings and look, their housings are more modern in design utilizing a threaded focus drive. These lenses are well known for their extreme anamorphic flare effects, and mild distortion at the wider focal lengths, which give them a character unlike other anamorphic lenses.
