Atlas Releases Affordable, Quality Orion 2x Anamorphic Prime Lenses, 40mm, 65mm and 100mm T2, in EF and PL Mounts

Atlas Lens Co. has released the first three lenses in its Orion Series of relatively affordable cinema quality anamorphic prime optics, comprising 40mm, 65mm and 100mm focal lengths, all at a maximum aperture of T2 and with a choice of Arri PL or Canon EF mount. 

The Orion 40mm T2 lens may well make an excellent first anamorphic lens for anyone wishing to explore or seriously shoot in the CinemaScope Anamorphic format on Panasonic Lumix cameras like the GH5 and GH4, whether renting or purchasing the lens.

The makers recommend adapters for those wishing to use the Orion Series lenses on cameras without EF or PL mounts:

An Interchangeable Mount System means you can use Orion Series Anamorphic lenses on any PL Mount camera one day, and any compatible EF,  E-mount, or Micro 4/3 camera with appropriate adapters for your next shoot or second unit.

One possibility may be to attach an Orion 40mm T2 to your GH5 or GH4 via a Metabones EF-to-M43 Speed Booster or Smart Adapter, thus obtaining different effective focal lengths from the one lens.
