    Sweet little set. What is the magnification, 2x? I'm curious how much more vignetting occurs using the wide angle. With the dark background it's difficult to tell.

    Lenses adapters work decent with 6:6 crop or ok at 16:9 crop but at 4:3 full frame anything bellow f:2 is OK to good depending of the subject or character of the image, see bellow examples . cheers as for the magnification i am not exactly sure , i will do some research into it

    6:6 crop @ f:2.8
    f28square.

    6:6 crop @ f:4
    f4sq.

    4:3 @ f:4
    f443.

    4:3 @ f:2
    f243.

    The only issue i have so far with the adapters is i lost all the cool Bokeh and edging that the Kern Paillard is great for :(

    Emmanuel, thanks for taking time to shoot these for me. I seldom read about such kits as yours, and am quite interested. I have a Kodak Ektar Cine 1.4/25mm and often I find the length a bit too long.
