Atlas Lens Co. releases the Orion Lens set, anamorphic that isn't the price of a new car.
You might remember Atlas Lens Co. last year with their 65mm prototype anamorphic lens. Well, this year they came back with a huge upgrade to the Orion Series Anamorphic Lens set with a 40mm, 65mm, and 100mm lens. The three lenses are T2 throughout the set. If that's not enough to get you excited, Atlas will also be shipping a 32mm, 50mm, and 80mm T2 anamorphic lens set early next year.
A 32mm T2 anamorphic is an extremely wide and impressive lens. The big selling point of these lenses though is the price point, each lens is about $8,000, except the 32mm which will be about $9,000.

I know these are cheap by Anamorphic standards, but $8000 per lens and 'Not breaking the bank' is still funny to me.

Yeah, which bank account are we talking about here? Not mine, that's for sure. It would be beyond repair.

My (second hand car) car costed me $4000, less than those 8000.

"Atlas Lens Co. releases the Orion Lens set, anamorphic that isn't the price of a new car."
At $25,800 including tax for the set, it is exactly the price of a new car. To be specific, the price of a 2018 Honda Accord. Please consider your article headlines a little more carefully.
