I thought I'd try some of the best ones here again before I go to the auction site. The first is the Bell & Howell version of the great little Angenieux 25/0.95 lens. There are plenty of pictures out there that show the outstanding quality of this lens on the m4/3 format. I had a chance to compare this one to the M1 version, and I prefer the B&H; the handling is a touch easier and, while I haven't weighed them, I always thought the B&H weighs a little more and that makes it feel like real quality.

The lens is in excellent shape, I can see none of the obvious flaws like scratches, fungus, cleaning marks etc. It was checked on a collimator before I bought it and was found to be a very sharp copy. Only minimal external signs of use. Comes with both caps and the little Bolex case. The rear cap has some scratches or oxidation, I can add another generic one if you like.

Prices have come down a bit on these, but I expect that with the GH2 and the zooming options the prices will go up again. I have two of these lenses and want to sell the extra one. Price is $1,099 incl shipping, insurance & paypal inside the US, everywhere else, please add $25 for tracked express shipping.

Here are two more c-mounts. I like the Canon 25/1.4 on the m4/3 format, it has a great handling, the IQ is nice, the size is perfect, and the sensor coverage is decent, i.e. slight vignetting but less than e.g. a Kern Switar. The lens is in good shape, it has been sitting around for a while and would benefit from a good cleaning, though... I can add a rear cap but don't have a front cap for it. $149 incl shipping, insurance & paypal.

The Canon 13/1.5 is a decent cheap wide angle for the m4/3 system. Like most wide c-mounts it does vignette and the sharpness falls off toward the corners. But it is usable, especially in 1:1 format, and being fast as it is, I like having one of them around (I have more than one of these...). This copy here is a mixed bag: The outside and barrel show signs of use but nothing that is worrisome, the glass is also good, I can see no major flaws. However, some of the inside paint seems to be bubbling up a bit (see second picture). This does not affect the IQ in any way that I am aware of, and it seems to be similar with all the copies I have, so I assume that is a design flaw. Low price on this one, $89 shipped & paypaled in the US. Comes with a case, no caps.

Two comments: 1) the Angenieux is an unbelievably great lens, probably my favorite in any format or mount, and, 2) Stefan is a great seller to deal with.

just curious, how do you get 1:1 format - is that via setting or cropping? (yes, i'm a noob)

I'm not 100% sure but I think all MFT cameras after the G1 have a format they call 1:1 or 6:6 which essentially gives you a square picture. This is cropped in-camera, so this format does not use the full size of the sensor. Since I started playing with MFT, 16:9 and 1:1 have become my favorite formats.
