Greetings! I have a Black Magic Ursa Mini 4K and have been interested in shooting with anamorphic lenses for a while now. I have several Nikkor prime lenses. What lens would you recommend for me? Cheers!

I’m currently looking for lenses that will work on the ursa mini 4.6k. Is there anything you can recommend?

Hello! I am extremely interested in shooting on anamorphics with my black Magic Ursa Mini 4.6k. I am somewhat new to using anamorphics with an ef mount camera. Would you have any suggestions on getting started, meaning certain lenses/set ups for this kind of camera? I would like to use vintage glass. Thank you so much!
