    Very nice collection. Being so small they looks really good with the GF1. What type of lenses/mount are those?

    Very cool!
    Did you have to do any type of modification to get them working properly? I've read that C mounts are really hard to get working properly without some mechanical changes.

    Could you post a list of these C mount lenses that you have and also tell us about the ones that don't work on mFT Panys and Olys?

    thanks

    I tried lots of C-mount lenses. The three I had that needed modification were:

    Tevidon 25/1.4
    Cosmicar 12.5/1.4
    Kern Switar 25/1.4

    The Tevidon and Cosmicar needed machining to fit the adapter. The Switar fit the adapter but extended too far into the G1 body and rubbed on the baffle. I sanded down the Switar and finally got infinity focus and still a little rub on the baffle.

    Nice "cheap" collection. This is my "worthless" collection I use with my Panny G1.

    I agree. No need to buy a lensbaby.

    But I have just ordered one, maybe to give a little control

    No tilt or shift. They are classic examples of illumination vs coverage. The lens appears to illuminate the entire sensor while the coverage is at best ~12mm circle.

    How much do you measure from the supplied images? 12mm, 15mm, 18mm?
    Does it matter?

    I find they make an image look like a miniature.

    Agree thats what I meant refering to tilt/shift effect that does the same. I like the way this lens does that.
