I came across this on Dealbert.net (http://dealbert.net/detail.php?id=4650665&ref=home)

Bell and Howell 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical DSLR Lens $204 at BuyDig.com
http://www.buydig.com/shop/product.aspx?sku=BH85MO&ref=cj

$5 off with code MayFlowers5

It's a 4/3 mount, manual focus. They also have it in Sony, Canon, and Nikon mounts.

Probably the same as the Samyang (rebranded).

Should this be posted in hot deals? Or not since it's not mu-43 mount?

I wonder if there is a cheap mechanical adapter for four thirds to micro four thirds (one without electrical contacts like om-m4/3 or fd-m3/4 adapters from fotodiox, rainbow or fotga etc).. I never came across one.. all I have seen have electrical contacts and priced around starting $60..

Seriously ? I have been seeing them around since just before the DMC G1 was 1st released. That was the 1st µ4/3 adapter available before any others. Its not as common to see now but they are available still, like this one for about 13 bucks.


Interesting about the 85mm lens tho. I might consider it if I did not already have a 75mm 1.4 in c-mount. Actually I have 2 of those 75mm c-mount lenses, I have just never got around to selling the second one.

Wow. It's a relatively huge lens, but I always wanted one of these 85's, and the Bell & Howell label is a blast from the past. Too bad it's only a sticker. At $205 shipped, well I can afford that.
