    Is this a C-mount lens?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Benoist-Berthiot...#ht_2666wt_973

    It looks very interesting and the price is pretty good. A bit long, but I've got the 20mm already. Do you think this would vignette a lot?

    Not a chance (c-mount)!

    Looks like a projection lens for cine 35mm.

    Do you think it's worth it?

    To me that looks like a lens for a 35mm projector used in cinemas, just as Vivek said.

    A lens with no focusing function, no aperture mechanism and no mount (these projection lenses are clamped at place in front of the film) - what would it be worth to you when out taking images?

    Frankly, even when I worked as cinema technician I wouldn't have considered the asked price a bargain... Now with all the cinemas closing down around the globe I don't know if it is worth anything at all.

    Thanks for the info, I'm totally lacking in old mount knowledge.
