Iscorama 2003 1.5x anamorphic monobloc lens for Pentax K mount. Rare and very neat little lens I wouldn't mind keeping, but it's a bit redundant in my stable. This is pretty much an Iscorama 36 MC with a Pentax 50mm f/1.7 stripped down and rehoused right up to the rear anamorphic element. Solid and fully built out of metal, doesn't have the tapered plastic housing of the anamorphic adapter attachments. Almost covers 36x24mm full frame at minimum focus, just some tiny dark corners at f/22.You could likely pull out the anamorphic bits for a Exo Optik rehousing if you wanted to. It's been recently cleaned and relubricated. It was stuck and gunked up with old grease, but can now focus with a single finger while remaining evenly dampened. Alignment is still locked to factory settings (adjustable with one lock screw and three grub screws if your camera mount/adapter is rotated for some reason). Optically excellent except for a scuff on the front coatings (pictured).
Haven't found it to affect image quality. Some specks of dust show up with the flashlight test but that's an extreme case. Missing a rubber ring around the mid barrel area, doesn't affect usage, should be easy to find some replacement material. Some general wear and one small dent/mark on the focus ring.
