It looks like Laowa could be on a mission to make anamorphic lenses more accessible for everyone if the new 20-second teaser trailer is anything to go for. 

Laowa makes some incredibly nice still lenses and cine lenses such as the Laowa Argus 35mm f/0.95 FFII and the Laowa 6mm T2.1 Zero-D Cine but up until now it’s never ventured into the world of anamorphic. For years, anamorphic lenses were reserved for top-level cinematographers shooting big-budget films, but these days some of the best anamorphic lenses won't break the bank. The  Sirui 24mm f/2.8 1.33x and the Sirui 50mm f/1.8 1.33x are two affordable anamorphic lenses that won't set you back anymore than a pro stills lens.
