Full Frame AIVASCOPE 1.5X single focus anamorphic lens on Sony A7S II + Panasonic S1

I have the (quick) opportunity to film on full frame such as Sony A7S II and Panasonic S1 with the new AIVASCOPE 1.5X single focus anamorphic lens.
It’s the first time I’m filming with A7S II, sorry for the overexposed shots. With this experience with the A7S II, I think I prefer the GH4 -it’s video codec rendering and it’s viewfinder-
I just have a few time and a very few lenses.
The 40mm is maybe too wide and vignetting with the Avaiscope, especially on close focus, also because of the ND filter. It’s better to film with it from 50mm. Some of the shots had been slightly cropped.
The M42 Vivitar 135mm was just used here to show more the anamorphic bokeh.
The Pentax-dfa 100mm f2.8 is also not really adapted, it was quite hard to focus with it, but the background is more out of focus.
The Panasonic Lumix S Pro 50 mm f/1.4 is really not adapted it’s vignetting, due to its depth and maybe it’s filter large thread (77mm). We will see when there will be adapters for the Panasonic S1, to provide shorter vintage lenses.
The Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm at 70mm at f/4.0 is obviously not adapted (the last four shots), anyway its a zoom, not surprising…

When I will have another access to the A7SII with better adapted primes I will do a much more proper test.
Thanks for watching.
Comments are appreciate.
