Pro cinema glass adapters--for seriously nuts

    I wondered why so many adapters for C-mount lenses, when these are--at best--marginally adapted to our cameras. Seriously, does anyone actually shoot true movies with these 8 to 16 mm should-have-been-recycled?

    So I looked for Arri(flex) PL-mount adapters, bumped in the ads of a wild and crazy Polish guy, homebrewing pro cinema lenses converters for Canon SLRs and :43:. Like, if you have a Zeiss (Germany, not the Kyocera/Sony or Cosina stuff they label in Japan for us gullible stills photographers...) Fast Primes set, or forgot some Panavision glass in a drawer, why not use these "legacy" (heritage, rather?) diopters on our cameras, costing the price of their lens shade?

    Anyway, it looks superb: Zeiss Arri PL to micro 4/3 camera GH1 E-P1 AG-AF100 G2 | eBay
    This being only one example--he doesn't have an eBay store yet, but check his other products. I love craftsmen.

    I've got three of his adapters (PL, OCT-19 and OCT-18). Super well-made and recommended.

    I don't see the attraction in the C-mount myself but they are three things these adapter/lens combos aren't: light, small, and cheap.

    But it goes to prove that M4/3 is a great system for using with almost any lens system with the proper adapters.
