Hi Rob,

if you buy it from Ebay, you sometimes need to adjust the Rectimascope a little bit, but this is not hard to do.
Only two screws...

Christian,

I've never considered shooting with the Rectimascop because of a few factors. The lens is very heavy which would necessitate the use of support rods, The locking focusing ring is fine for projection, but problematic for shooting on the fly and I'd prefer a better minimum focus distance. As for distortion, once the lens is seated correctly I find the image to be razor sharp.

However, it has been done. Here's a picture of one mounted on a Canon 7D.

Thanks for the reply about shooting with this anamorphic lens.
A 75mm lens on a 7D is around 120mm in terms of 35mm film due to the crop on the 7D, so I am wondering what I am doing wrong.. I can't get my Rectimascop focused on my 5D Mark II.. I am using a Carl Zeiss 135mm 3.5 lens with it. Any suggestions?
