Any one using adapted pancake lenses? Please show the pictures!
I've shared this one elsewhere...but here it is again:
Which lenses are they ;;;; the photos taken by these lenses,are they good enough ;;;
The lens is a Voigtlander 35mm f/2.5 Color-Skopar. By itself its 23mm long and with the 31.5mm long--half a centimeter longer than the 20mm f/1.7.
I've posted some images here.
They're good enough for me. The corners smear a little, especially the top left one, but in the center and through the majority of the frame, the lens is incredibly sharp with excellent colors--helped by its rather simple design & moderate aperture.
It's less than 1.5 inches deep, including adapter!
Voigtlanders... cheap Asian made crap If you have any I'll be willing to help you make space for more lenses on your shelf by taking them off your hands. I'll even pay for the postage... coz I'm a nice guy...
An SLR pancake - Konica 40mm on a PM1
I really liked my Hexanon 40/1.8 when I first started playing with adapted lenses, there are plenty of shots in the Konica 40mm f/1.8 Hexanon AR Image Thread
Here's a few of my shots with that lens:

Industar 69. There are a few posts on the forum about mod-ing it.
thanks for sharing in the mod in this thread. you just gave me a
project to do. looks good.
As phigmove pointed out, it is an Industar-69. It's a 28mm f2.8 lens from the old Soviet Chaika half-frame camera. Good copies are readily available on eBay for less than $50. It uses a standard M39 screw mount but the lens has to be modified for infinity focus on a M4/3 body. Fortunately, the modifications are very simple due to the extremely simple construction of the lens. Sometimes, all the lens needs is adjustment as opposed to any physical modifications.
Once you've fixed the focus issue, it's a perfectly acceptable little lens. It's not razor-sharp edge to edge, but center sharpness is fine and there's no vignetting. Not up to the image standards of the Voigtlander or Konica, but it's still a lot of fun. I posted a couple of sample images in the gallery documenting the hack. Industar-69 Hack - Mu-43 Gallery
