Just got this lens and adapter. The f1.9 needs no adaptation
(grinding) to allow infinity focus. These are a few of the
first shots...

How is the vignetting in 16:9 video? I need a affordable wide or fisheye lens for extreme sports video :)

That looks really good! I have the f/1.4 version of the 12.5mm, and spent a day being a "human lathe" grinding its little rear end down. I am a little tempted to also grind the front rim (filter threads) down just a little - I'm convinced that I might gain a little bit of image circle doing that.... any one else tried that?

Nice shots! I have the Computar 12.5mm f1.3, but haven't used it so much since acquiring the Oly 17mm. The FOV after cropping is around 16mm. Still...the faster lens is nice! Interesting bokeh in the flower shot.

Were these shots wide open?
