Hi guy,
I've been thinking about this idea.
Old Betacam lenses are 2/3.
What about those lenses?
There are lot of them (Fuji, Canon) and very cheap.

To use a 2/3" lens you will need something like the AbelCine HDx2 B4/PL Optical Adapter which doubles the focal-length and enables the lens to fully cover the much bigger m4/3 sensor.

I expect that this optical adapter is not cheap.

Guy, many of these Betacam lenses have "duplicator".
I don't know much, but a 2/3 lens is a 2/3 lens for HD and for SD. The difference may be that in the SD the lens is framed for 4x3 and in the HD for 16x9.
The thing is to know if with the same adapter those lenses would work.
HD lenses are great but too expensive.
Don't know if I'm saying a "bêtise".

I think you will have to test, as I can`t imagine that it is this easy, otherwise more people would be using these old lenses, and AbelCine could not charge a lot for their optical duplicator.
