    One of the perks of m4/3 is of course adapting lenses.
    Shot on the D16. BTS shot on GM1. Footage of lens line up is shot with a Cosmicar 22.5-90/1.5 that I've been told covers the gh4 in UHD.

    All the settings both in camera and computer are identical. All differences is purely in the lens itself.

    The lenses are:
    Zeiss Tevidon 10mm f2.0 C-Mount
    Computar 12.5mm f1.8 C-Mount
    Zeiss Tevidon 16mm f1.8 C-Mount
    Tokina 24mm f2.8 m42-Mount
    Zeiss Jena 35/2.8 m42-Mount
    Zeiss Jena 50/2.8 C/Y-Mount
    Yashinon 50/1.9 m42-Mount

    All of the Yashica lenses are good; I prefer the Yashica MLs in C/Y mount to the Yashinons, especially the 50mm f/2 which is an amazing lens.

    Thanks for doing this, I love old C-mount and M39 glass.

    That was fun and informative. I love my Cosmicar 22.5~90/1.5!
