    seems that

    Good morning folks

    I noticed yesterday that Ciecio7 has a put in an iterative change on his FD adaptor for the micro 4/3 cameras. He seems to have included a light baffle on the back to reduce internal flare.



    some have suggested that internal reflections can reduce contrast as the lenses produce an image circle covering much more than the 4/3 sensor.

    I will be putting up my test results as soon as mine comes to hand.

    Nice! Looking forward to the test results! I might have to get one of these adapters to check it against my current RJ version.

    Not at all, the mere fact it's an incomplete sentence invites one to look further

    One alternate possibility (for all those old SLR mount lenses) is the Panasonic made c-mount adapters made for their CCTV cameras.

    If that is an improvement it will be(come) my third FD adapter.
    Ciecio is the best
    Thanks Pellicle for pointing me to their direction.

    Folks

    the new FD adaptor from Ciecio7 is quite nice. I am unable to find any advantage in the new mask system (which has been touted as a possible advantage in the Rayqual one) but it seems that there may be some reasons.

    I've placed a review of his new adaptor on my blog

    http://cjeastwd.blogspot.com/2010/07...1-adaptor.html

    hope its of interest to some
