    I have 2 hassy lenses, an old 80cf and a 150 f2.8 f lens and am wondering about adapting to mft. I used the 80 on an adapter for an enlarging lens for years so I still have the adapter and it could be mounted to a mft mount. I know they would be a lot larger than other similar focal length lens and I do know they were just about as sharp as you could put on a fc2000 camera. I have a small lathe and micro mill so it would be fairly easy to make up a mount.

    So the question is has any one done it or heard of some one using hassy lenes? Thanks John

    While they were certainly sharp for their time on a 6cm^2 piece of film they won't be very useful on mft.
    You would be using only a tiny portion in the center of the image circle. It's like trying to get an 8*10 print by printing at 24*30 and then cutting out an 8*10 piece in the center.
    I'm afraid even the cheapest mft lenses will actually give you better results.
