Will a barrel type lens designed for cameras work the same way as the panamorphs? As long as the lens is large enough to allow the light to pass through I don't see the difference in the two except price.
I've looked in the past and I couldn't find anything with a large enough aperture to avoid vignetting and artifacts. And if you don't find a 1.33x stretch lens and use custom scaling, then you will not be using the full panel, which kinda defeats the purpose.
