    If more info could be obtained about this, I'll add it to the G1 adapter list sticky.

    Are there any C mount lenses that will cover the m4/3 frame? Also, some of the C mount lenses have rear elements which protrude quite a bit. With that exposed sensor...

    Yes. Yes.

    Wolfgang Rabe had a flickr set with lots of photos taken with C mount lenses, but he's deleted his account...

    I saw his photos before they were deleted, but some of them were clearly taken with lenses that didn't cover the entire frame.

    I'd like to try out a c mount lens I picked up for nothing on ebay, it's an 8.5mm f/1.5. I'm sure it won't fill the frame, but it would be interesting to play with. Too bad he took down his photos...

    I think the lenses have to be at least 50mm in FL for it not to cover the frame. Otherwise, you can see vignetting with shorter lenses like the 25mm when taken wide open.
