Good Afternoon,

Another Canon combo to try on the E-Mii; EF 300mm f4L IS with the 1.4x III attached via Metabones V5. I'm pleased with the results; AF-S only but very fast to acquire and lock.

Regards,

Edd

First shots using my Konica 57mm f1.4 lens on my Olympus EM10ii. Decided to shoot some things that didn't try to escape or hide. A pink rose and a red/yellow flower of a variety that I don't recognize.
Amaryllis, a bulb that keeps on producing more bulbs. Some people obsess about them. Nice shots!

I am making my very first adapter using a C mount adapter as my starting point. I am not sure if all C mount adapters are the same profile or not. This is the only one I have.

From my calculations the red X, in the photo below, marks the plane for the C mount flange distance and the blue X marks the plane for the m4/3 flange distance. Is that correct? I want to be sure I am measuring from the right place to calculate the correct length of my adapter (M42 to M4/3) which should be 26.2mm.

There is also a tiny little screw on the m4/3 part of the adapter. Shown on the black adapter below. What is that tiny screw for? Is it used to snug up an adapter? If so how does it work?

I hope this is the correct place to be asking questions like this? I couldn't find another thread that I thought was appropriate.
Thanks

How did it go?

The C mount requires that the lens goes into the body somewhat. Other adapters exist for other mounts that do not do that, all their bases would be too large anyway but their back focus distance is much larger than the c mount.

Why alter a c mount adapter?

Early attempt with a Helios 44M with the front element reversed. It is just about impossible to get anything in focus on my G80, but produces some interesting results.
