Century x1.33 DS-WS13-58 arrived this morning ... proper testing to follow. Nothing scientific here! Just uploaded some flaring (pretty much the main reason I bought this adapter).

    Footage was horizontally corrected by +33% in Premier Pro.

    So for now, footage here is a 7D (1080/24P) with the WS13 screwed directly onto a Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 and also a Zeiss ZE 35mm f/2. Thankfully, no vignette on either of these. Will test wider ASAP.

    The footage showing more pronounced, round flare elements is from the 85mm. The Zeiss 35mm tends to dampen almost all but the horizontal anamorphic flare.

    It is possible to rack focus through this adapter; so quick & sloppy shots (suffering from excessive edge of frame softness & CA) can be pulled off by just focusing the prime OR if you bother to focus both the prime & the adapter, then the image quality improves by a significant amount.

    Plenty more test footage to come.

    Following on from the flare examples in the previous video – weather messed up plans for a proper shoot today, so – grabbed a few quick shots from the roof of our warehouse.

    Barrel distortion is not the lens; I failed to align it precisely after swapping out 85mm 35mm.

    My rack focusing is not very good – I try not to do it very often! - but one example in the stairwell shows how you can focus the prime between near to far subjects without touching the adapter.

    A mixture of 720/60P and 1080/24P footage vertically shrunk to 75% (a rough inverse of widening footage horizontally to 133%).
