    Meopta 12,5/1,8

    Does anyone know how this lens performs on m4/3? Vignetting probably, but how much?
    Old Czech aluminium c-mount lens, that's all I know.

    What has happened to that picture, hakkalo? It is totally unsharp, it cannot be the lens, or do you have a bad copy?

    Definitely, this one is good. BTW, this thread should be named G1 with Czech lenses

    Don't you have access to an early 40mm/3.5 Kilfitt Macro Kilar? That could complete the series with the only Liechtenstein lens I know of

    Cheers

    I've a black M42-mount Kilfitt Makro- Kilar D 4cm F2.8 (W. Germany),but haven't got time to try it on G1 (too many classic lenses). I love this lens and it is better than Nikkor Micro 55mm F3.5 (none-Ai) I sold not long ago.

    Besides a C-mount adapter, I got the Meopta Largor 12mm today. Big front lens, filter threads must be some odd 38mm. Vignettes heavily ofcourse. Almost a complete circle within the frame. Nice and straight though, little vignetting.
