    Hey Vivek...Olympus Pen 40mm f/1.2?!!?

    Vivek, I was reading an old thread here in which you described having "supercharged" a Pen 40mm f/1.4 so that it opened up to 1.2. Not sure I want to alter my 1.4, which is wonderful...but the camera nerd in me is dying to know how you did it. Care to share?

    Yeah, added a Leitz Macrotar VIb (mounted in a 43mm hood) to the 40/1.4
    and mounted the pen F lens directly to the G1 to get infinity focus. Flare is a problem, other than that it is superb.

    Cheap and simple.

    So how does adding more glass effectively increase the aperture? Physics-wise, this is a bit beyond my ken.

    I don't know. You asked what I did and how I did it and I provided the answer for it.

    I am not a physicist.
