    Scientific, telecentric c-mount lenses

    These lenses are very expensive (four figures) don't cover a whole sensor but I'm curious if anyone has tried one? Places like Edmond Optics (get their catalog, it's a c-mount lens paradise) sell them.

    I think I ran across someone who had used one on a different forum, but I can't place it now.
    Panasonic GH1/G1, Canon FTb(n)/F-1, Mamiya C330F/RB67 Pro SD, Chamonix 45N-2, Nikon F5 + Assorted Lenses

    That was probably me I have an Invaritar Telecentric Macro 5x. I'm actually thinking of selling it if you're interested in one - it'd be for quite a bit less than 4 figures.

    Here are a few samples from it. It actually does ALMOST cover the whole sensor - the first image is a 4:3 and you can just make out a tiny cutoff at the corner. First image is a small red ant (like the ones that live in between patio stones [at least here in Ontario]) and the second is the face of a baby mealworm.

    For larger images see:
