    I found it on auction with price around 80$, but have no info about this


    Is it c-mount lens? Does it cover m4/3 sensor or not?
    Thank you!

    It's very likely a c-mount. I would not expect it to have an image circle that would cover a :43: sensor, which means that you will experience significant vignetting. I believe I read somewhere that any c-mount wider than 22mm will not produce a large enough image for :43:, but the widest c-mount I have is a 25mm, which vignettes significantly.

    I guess that you could use it in Extended Tele mode (or whatever they call that mode which uses only the center of the sensor), but I don't think I'd recommend it as a :43: option, unless it was a lot cheaper.

    Projector Lens

    It appears to be a projector lens for a Swiss-made Bolex projector. I have an Bolex 18-5 8mm projector it looks to use lenses similar to that one.
