Hello, im very interested in this lenses since i live near a store that is about to sell them.

But i cant find any information about the Taylor Hobson Taytal .. does anybody knows anything about this lense? i suppose is a C mount since it is a thread of 16mm, the lens is said to be a " Taylor Hobson Taytal 0.5 inch F1.7 Telephoto Cine Lens ", i saw this post on ebay too like for GBP 21.00.

I also found this guy that owns A LOT of switars and t.hobsons, but i havent contacted him. (Vintage Addict)
Ok pls help me out to see if they can be used for something ill be glad to sell them since they own like 3 to 5 of each, for now i was only able to touch and see the one listed above!.

c mount tread is 25mm , it was made for 16mm cine camera

16mm tread is not C mount , it is "D mount" made for 8 mm camera

D mount cannot fit m4/3 camera

and it will not focus to infinity .
