    Smile Relay Lenses

    I am in the process of putting together a relay lens system to use on mirrorless camera systems and will report any progress (hampered momentarily due to lack of bits and pieces of adapters) in due course.

    There are many commercial ones available starting from the famous Panavision's Frazier lens to much lesser known (and way cheaper) ones for CCD cameras.

    Has anyone worked with any and is there any experience to share?

    Of particular interest is the non magnifying types that would preserve the apertures of the taking lenses.

    When the infinity focus is within a lens, this is what is possible even when I hold the Repro Nikkor 85/1 straight on the NEX-7 (registry distance 18mm).

    Already ~ 1:1 magnification.

    Re: Relay Lenses

    I'm not sure what a relay lens is for. I'm using enlarging lenses with my Betterlight scanning back, tonight. A gutted and rebuilt 162mm f4.5 Wolly Raptar got closer than I expected to my subject. Ill add a link when it is done uploading...
