    Oh yah thats wide. Computar 12mm f1.3 shot wide open to show off our mess after a candy making experiment gone awry. :biggrin: I shot 16:9 and cropped to 4:3 as well.

    Anybody else using this thing? It was a huge pain to grind it down enough to achieve a usable focus but I think it works pretty well.

    Yep, probably the best of the cheaper wide c-mounts. I hate to say this after you worked so hard on it, but there is a little stop screw under the focus ring - if you remove that, you can focus further and reach infinity...

    You mean I ate all those metal shavings for nothing? XD

    Actually, I looked for the focus ring and didn't really understand those tips so I just ground it down (i'm an impatient sort)...
