    So I went by Midwest Optical today, spoke with one of their managers, and put hands on some of their lenses. According to Midwest Optical, Noktors were originally Goyo c-mount lenses with a different base. When the company was sold to SLR Magic it was taken somewhere else ( likely Senko ), but the original Noktors were Goyos.

    I got to look at the Goyo used, and can see why it would be a great choice, because it would STILL be a great choice. I think for an amount of work similar to what would be done to a Fujinon CF25B would yield a similarly awesome lens with a wider aperture and for not much more money. According to Midwest Optical the lenses are around $390.
    I'd imagine modification to make them worthy of mounting on a camera would me similarly priced to the Fujinon CF25B, if not slightly less expensive.

    So: Who's interested in a Goyo 25mm f/0.95 set up for micro four-thirds?
