Mount Type?

Just to confirm, this is a C-mount lens, correct?

Which, of course, won't work on the MFT sensor. Or am I misinformed?

I'm not familar with that but I'm pretty sure that it won't work for either the MFT or the EF mounts. If I can ask…why were you interested in this particular lens? If you are looking for an alternative to EF series lenses you might try a B4 lens with a b4 to EF adaptor. The B4 lenses will stay in focus from 100% zoom to the wide side of the lens and that can help a lot in a run and gun situation. You can also get motorized power supplies for these for the motorized zooms that frequently accompany them.

I mostly just ask out of curiosity. The primary reason I opted to the MFT in the first place was for the application of "vintage" lenses to expand my visual palette. I tend towards older, partially-degraded aesthetics.

That said, I hadn't hunted down an adapter for that mount type yet so I wasn't sure. I just know the sensor can be somewhat of an issue and that's not something that's always easy to dig up specs on for anything made before the 1980s.

It wasn't so much an alternative to the EF series so much as it is a creative experiment of sorts :-) Thanks for the advice, though!

I get it. But I've decided to get the best lenses that I can afford and then I can degrade them in post. Really? You like that?

Hi Andrew - this is not a C-mount lens. It is a brass Cameflex mount for the old Eclairs.

You can certainly buy a $149 Cameflex to micro 4/3 adapter to mount this lens on your camera, but it's a standard 16mm lens, so you'll get vignetting at the wide end on a Super 16 or micro 4/3 sensor.

Since you posted this in the Blackmagic subforum, I assume you have a Blackmagic camera with a Super 16 sensor?

If so, a Super 16 lens like this one would prevent vignetting, but would also be more expensive.

The mount matters less than the sensor coverage.

Hope this is helpful,

Bill

Definitely. Which is why I wanted to confirm that (which you most graciously have). Thanks a bunch! :-)
