    Hakkalo, I would be very interested to know/see the result of 1 Inch (25mm) lenses uncropped in 4:3 format. I am looking for one that covers the whole sensor in 4:3 and does not vignette.

    Do these lenses cover the m4/3 sensor? Or are they cropped as they are because they would otherwise vignette?

    Thanks,

    Thanks, I have seen that spreadsheet. I was wondering specifically about the 1", 2", and 3" lenses Hakkalo is using, which are all cropped. Hakkalo, uncropped, at 4:3, do they cover the m4/3 sensor?

    They were all uncropped,at 16:9. Lens with focal length above 2 Inch will cover M4/3 sensor,some 3 Inch even can cover Full Frame.

    Re: G1 with American made lenses

    Thanks for the clarification. Some of these shots are quite lovely. I particularly like the one of the trees taken with the Elgeet 3 Inch F2.9 Cine-Tel. However, I'm wondering what advantages these lenses have over other manual focus lenses adapted, say, from Nikon or Canon. Is it primarily that they are quite small? Or is there something about the image quality itself that is appealing to you?

    You've to modify to use with Nikon or Canon by meant of a helicoid in order to focus.

    What I'm wondering is not how to adapt them, but what drew you to using these lenses instead of lenses from still cameras by other manufacturers. In other words, what do you like about these lenses more than other lenses?

    Old classic lens like old classic car ,has its own characters in which the computer made modern lens and car are lacking of these "taste". Not every one's cup of tea though.

    Hakkalo, I just love the results you get from your Trioplan. I have the 100/2.8 Trioplan in M42 mount and it's a very interesting lens.

    Cheers!

    E-P1 with American made lenses

    Elgeet 12mm, f/1.2. I'm not sure how I feel about this lens yet. Its not love at first sight for me, but I'm collecting other c-mount lenses in the 12~13mm range. Oh, this is with the E-P1, not the G1.

    Thank-you, Hakkalo. This f1.2/12mm Elgeet that I wasn't so sure about has just won a reprieve this morning: when it arrived a couple of weeks ago, it would not focus to infinity at all, only macro. So, I took it apart and found I could make it "focus" to infinity by unscrewing the back rear element about 1.75 turns away from fully tight. So it kind of worked after that, in a somewhat arty Lens-Babyish kind of way (for example, my picture above). By no means sharp, and I knew my "fix" wasn't really the right approach at all.

    Today, I realised I could take the screws off the focus ring - meaning that the ring turns continuously with no stops at either end of the focus range. I re-tightened that rear element I'd previously loosened... and voilá, now I can achieve good focus and it's become a much sharper lens (in the centre). Apart from infinity, I can also get close focus of just a couple of centimetres - probably a greater range than the lens was originally designed for!

    Probably, someone had modified position of the focus ring so they could specialise in macros previously, and it just got sold to me like that. Here are a couple taken after my tinkering.

    The picture of kitchen implements was cropped. The detail of the Balinese painting was not cropped (but it was shot in square mode on my E-P1, so really it has been cropped in-camera). I'll post a picture of the lens within the next couple of hours.

    Re: G1 with American made lenses

    Here's another from the Elgeet f1.2/12mm. I like what it does - sometimes. I have since acquired a Cosmicar f1.4/12.5mm, and it is so much better than the Elgeet that it's not funny - quite a bit sharper and less prone to blooming flare off bright objects. I've seen the same Elgeet lens floating around eBay with a Buy-It-Now price of $799.99. That's totally insane - its not worth anything like that - and never was, whether mounted on a m4/3rds camera or a Bolex. Mine "only" cost $150, and even that's a bit rich, really. Still, it's possible to have fun with it from time to time.

    I have one too. It's an weird softy wide open (can be interesting) but stopped down it's really quite nice. Strange lens for sure:

    Ha- I think the people in Solms would have a thing or two to say about the edge sharpness! However, there is a certain "look" to this lens that I think will grow on me - it may well be my most "interesting" lens so far.
