Steve Morton made 2 fantastic OCT19 mounts for my MovieCam cameras.
Most lomo anamorphic lenses clear the mirror but a couple of the odd-shaped ones interfere with the camera body in front of the mount on a SuperAmerica oddly enough. I have not yet tried the square 50mm, 30mm or 22mm which have obnoxious tail ends protruding past the mount. If they fit on some reflex camera in Soviet Russia, they ought to work on another reflex camera in principle.
I'd love to see if an OCT19 mount would fit on the front of a 435! I think it's asking too much for an A-Minima though. Open gate 16mm 2x anamorphic would look sekksy!

IMO older Konvas lenses are mechanically not worth of such mod. investing 450 to 550 per PL machining the allready super thin barrels that as is have ton of flex is not good investment in my opinion. Kinor type is way better and easier to convert over all it will cost you less and final will be way more solid. but still you are looking at 50% of the lens price for PL conversion. is it worth? i have OST-19 to E mount, OST-19 to Sony FZ and OST-19 to Red Epic and in last 3 yers i have shot a lot with my Lomos, (around 70% of all the things) and i never had any need to convert any of my 19 lenses OST-19 to PL. Probably biggest mistake i made was that i didnt buy A-mount in a start and have Alexsa/Res/F55 option on a one end and OST-19 among with all photo glass on the other end. Allstar kit for alexsa Red and E with OST19 will cost you around 1500USD and its best and most versatile mounting system on the planet. Main problem i faced with Lomos in OST-19 was not new digital cameras but rather 35mm. i couldnt use my Arri435 and i have a several Konvases just for that. working with Konvas Viewfinder and 1000 small issues, mag scratching's, leaks and stability issues can justify PL conversion so one can shoot with Arriflex/Moviecams. also be aware that even with PL conversion many Konvas and some Kinor lenses will still have an mirror clearance issue. this issue is same for film reflex camera as for Alexsa Studio. If i was you i would keep the Kinors as they are and get Allstar A-mount. one more reason is that you can keep switching your Lomos on a constant search for better specimen. once you invest in PL conversion then you are stuck
