    I want to get a C-mount lens for cheap (under 50 or so) and I'm not sure what the difference is between all of the options. I found this rather cheap kit:
    25mm F1.4 CCTV Lens Set for Micro 4/3 M43 GF2 EPL2 GH2 - eBay (item 390323961632 end time Jun-28-11 00:52:39 PDT)
    I want crazy bokeh and some vignetting, but I do want a fairly sharp lens...

    Oh, and what happens if I get a CS mount rather than a C mount? I guess I need to buy an extension ring in that case? I also want to be able to infinity focus properly (and ideally not beyond it but I can deal).

    I'm pretty sure that ALL those Chinese CCTV lenses on eBay are made by Fujian. It's actually a fairly sharp lens.

    They usually go for about $25. The link you posted is actually a good dealm because you're getting the adapter as well.

    Ok, cool. I had a suspicion it was all out of the same factory but confirmation is good. Thanks!
