Great Joy 50mm T2.9 1.8x full-frame anamorphic lens mini-review

Great Joy 50mm T2.9 1.8x full frame anamorphic lens
In December 2021, Great Joy announced its first full-frame anamorphic lens, the 60mm T2.9 1.33x anamorphic. Now, the company is back with a new 50mm T2.9 1.8x anamorphic, and we’ve gone hands-on to see just how it performs.

What makes this new Great Joy 50mm T2.9 1.8x anamorphic lens stand out is that with a squeeze factor of 1.8x it gives us a more dramatic anamorphic effect than most other budget anamorphic lenses, all while retaining a reasonably fast maximum aperture that covers full frame sensors, albeit sometimes with a slight crop for some camera models.
