    Hi all

    I am a proud owner of an E-PL2 for about six months and started supplementing my kit lenses with some adapted-manual stuff.

    The next one I've been eyeing is the computar 12.5mm f1.3 c-mount, but I'm having great difficulties finding it anywhere. Anyone know where I could get one from a source that will ship to either Canada or Australia? (I know their far apart, but I live in Australia and will be visiting Canada soon... which is where I'm from).

    Hello manzoid,

    The Computar 12.5mm/1.3 requires a basic modification to mount on m4/3. The rear diameter must be filed down by a couple millimeters in order to fit within the 37.2mm of a c-mount adapter.

    Here's is a helpful link which shows you how:
    in my view ...: adapting a lens to fit the mount

    PM me if you can't locate a Computar 12.5mm/1.3 anywhere, I have a spare that is excellent and I ship everywhere.
