Finally got the adapter today so took it out for a spin after office. All the shots are taken with the lens wide open, except for the where you see star-shaped bokeh lights. Originally, I got this from ebay for $29. But now it's only available for $39. High demand, perhaps.

Great shots! I've got one of those lenses and an adaptor on their way to me, so now I've seen your shots and video I'm really looking forward to giving the lens a try!

It's a really fun lens to take around AJ. It's just a bit weird that the lens is cheaper than the adapter :)

wish a class of 25 mm lense at 1.4 existed without vignetting but the shots show promise , looks like it could be useful for a vignetting portrait lens etc


the pric is unreal , qualiy is interesting

it would be really interesting to know if there is vignetting on widescreen video.

I've just ordered the E-P2 and is waiting (impatiently) for it to be delivered to me. This looks like a fun lens to have, but what adapter is it that you have for it?

That little extension tube is a C to CS adapter.

I have a 50mm version of this, once you get beyond 35mm or so, there is no more vignetting.

thanx for the reply...do you have to do any changes to the adapter for it to focus infinity and do you have a problem focusing infinity? :smile:

That's a good question. I've only shot cloeups with it but will check this afternoon when I return from work.

Though if you don't mind spending the extra money you can always get the metabones adapter. Pricey but reaalllllly nice.

The lens will not focus to infinity with this adapter. Here's two shots I got today on my way home from work though.
