I have Quartz 8mm film camera with detachable Meteor-8M-1 lens. Its 1,8/9-38, working as 0.5-2x converter.

I found working full 4/3 frame covering combo attaching it (holding in hands, so no usable photos yet) to Industar-50-2 lens (its 3,5/50) with 2x light loss. As result it close to 4,5/25-100 manual lens.

Is it worth to create such vintage lens?

Any ideas how to use it? It does have C-mount compatible threads, but require some more lenses to be used on camera.

If you're going to try attaching it to the Industar 50/2, would you be better off getting a cheap $25 50mm/1.8 so that you have a 25-100/f2.5 instead? That seems like a much more useful and interesting combination. There are a lot of cheap ~24-70 or ~28-80 legacy lenses out there that will undoubtedly be better than a modification to produce a 25-100/f4.5.

Rear element of Meteor is about 8mm in diameter. It can not fully cover front element of faster lens like 50/1.8

Since there is a dificulty on simply mounting this lens on a C-mount adapter, has anyone tried to mount it on a Micro 43 system just by using a M25 (c-mount) to M42 adapter, and then simply use a M42-M43 adapter?
