Going thru their catalog I stumbled on a line of lenses they sell. Not cheap, but the 8mm lens is interesting. Covers 1" format with a c-mount.

8mm FL, F 1.4 to F 16

They claim 120 l/m in the center and 80 l/m at the corners. Has anyone any experience with these?

Seems quite interesting. Somebody with the money to spend, should give them a try…

That's funny, I was looking at the EO lenses the other day and wondering the same thing. I think you'd get vignetting on the wider ones. As a comparison, my 1" Fujinon TV 25/1.4 has only very slight vignetting, and Fujinon TV 12.5/1.4 vignettes quite a bit without helicoid modification.

Those EO lenses are actually very affordable considering the wide focal lengths and the speed. You'd likely have to shave a bit of material off the near mount diameter though, depending on your adaptor.
