About Item

Want to go wide on Micro 4/3? This is most likely the widest linear lens for video use!

The lens is in excellent condition with no marks, scratches or fungus on the glass. There is some minor wear on the body - see pictures.

The lens is tiny, therefore perfect for gimbal work! See the attached video for image samples. Epic flares, right!?

The lens is originally a c-mount lens with no front filter threads. I've installed a very tight-fitting m4/3 adapter and a slip-on mount with reverse 67mm threads. There's also a metal screw on cap.

The lens doesn't cover the full m4/3 sensor! cropping into 2,35:1 gets rid of most of the vignetting. Turning on e-stabilisation on the GH5 crops in a bit and removes the vignette in 16:9 video. GH4's 4K crop has no vignette either. BMPCC uses only the center bit of the frame, so there are no issues whatsoever. Have a look at the explanatory picture with cropmarks.

You have to be careful though when using screw on filter. They must be with the slim ring otherwise, there might be some vignetting. I used a 67->82mm step up and a 82mm ND filter with great results.

I could include the 67->82 step up ring if needed.

Let's make a deal!
