Got a set of very cheap extension tubes, stacked them to the longest length, and played with Minolta Rokkor MC 55mm f1.7 on rainy days:

These last three images are all different and all superb. Well done, Damiano!

God I want that lens and the 40m! Great shot.
I occasionally see the Kodak Cine 40mm on evilBay but boy, do they want a pretty penny for them! :rolleyes:
I am a little suspicious that it might vignette, after my disappointing experience with the Kodak Cine 38/2.5 (which admittedly is designed for 8mm film!)
I don't seem to be able to find any sample images taken with the 40mm anywhere...

Thank you, too kind.

IT is this Forum and the help from you guys that allowed me to go beyond "native" (lenses) and start to explore adapting glass.
I find myself no longer using any of the brilliant M.Zuiko and Lumix lenses and now much prefer the need to focus manually where I can create an image.
Often I find that just by rotating the helicoid and focusing past or before the intended subject I achieve a different and often much more interesting image, something that probably I would miss with auto-focus.
And then the ability to see how aperture affects the image as I am composing is now crucial to me. With native lenses is focus wide-open but the image can change once the shutter is triggered because the lens will stop down. Only recently I have been instructed on how to avoid that (but just with one of my cameras, the E-M1, not possible on E-P5 :().
Furthermore I have a thing for lenses that have few glass elements where the edges tend to go just a bit funky (field curvature) and give an image that (possibly) subliminally reflects more the human vision instead of edge-to-edge pin-point sharpness.
Although not sure where the fetish for swirly bokeh come from :hmmm:
