    40mm is the classic moderate wide-angle anamorphic lens if shooting a sensor area similar to 4-perf 35mm anamorphic (about 21mm x 17.5mm). A lot of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” was shot on this focal length as well as Wes Anderson’s anamorphic movies. If you want something more like an 18mm spherical then you’d have to get a 35mm anamorphic.

    I don't suppose you'd have some examples of shots done with a 40mm anamorphic.

    Best advice I could give is to rent them all before you buy :)

    Or go to a rental house where they will let you test them on the prep floor for free.

    Gemini and an Alexa mini both have a very similar FOV if you’re delivering 2:40:1 from a 6:5 cut of the sensor.

    Please forgive the format disparity here, open gate on the Arri sensor is 1.5:1, and we are working on a 1.2:1 origin target for both...

    Anyway, 40/50/75/135 as others have mentioned is great.

    I would almost always take a 40 or 65 if I could only take one! Although a 50 is undeniably cool too.

    Well the 4th may be to deep for my pockets right away so im going with 3. when I used the atlas A set with my mini I felt like the images weren't very wide at all.

    Björn, I like how Flickr thinks you used a focal length of '65535.0 mm' on the Epic. :-P
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    Did you see this article about the use of long anamorphic lenses on "Uncut Gems"? Normal was apparently 75mm anamorphic.

    Look at the frame grabs for these two movies -- most of them were shot with a 40mm Panavision anamorphic lens in 4-perf 35mm.

    I went with 25, 65 (macro) and 100 . down the line ill probably get a 40 and maybe 135. but for music videos, I definitely need that wide, and 65 can be my workhorse.
