Very nice collection. Being so small they looks really good with the GF1. What type of lenses/mount are those?

Very cool! :D
Did you have to do any type of modification to get them working properly? I've read that C mounts are really hard to get working properly without some mechanical changes.

Could you post a list of these C mount lenses that you have and also tell us about the ones that don't work on mFT Panys and Olys?

thanks

I tried lots of C-mount lenses. The three I had that needed modification were:

Tevidon 25/1.4
Cosmicar 12.5/1.4
Kern Switar 25/1.4

The Tevidon and Cosmicar needed machining to fit the adapter. The Switar fit the adapter but extended too far into the G1 body and rubbed on the baffle. I sanded down the Switar and finally got infinity focus and still a little rub on the baffle.

The night pictures in here almost look like the are tilt shifted!
No tilt or shift. They are classic examples of illumination vs coverage. The lens appears to illuminate the entire sensor while the coverage is at best ~12mm circle.

Hmmm the lens is a 25mm Kern Switar, I thought that one coverd ~18mm ?
