Help using oct-18 mount lenses with canon EF

Recommended Posts

I'm looking into purchasing a set of lomo primes in oct-18 mount. I noticed that to directly mount the lens to a canon camera you have to buy either a oct-18 to oct-19 adaptor, and then an oct-19 to EF. They also make oct-18 to pl, and then pl to EF. Anyways, with either of these adaptor setups, I noticed that the oct-18 versions of the lomo anamorphic primes rear lens barrel rotates when focusing. Does anyone have any insight or experience using or converting oct-18 lomo anamorphic primes to any kind of canon EF setup???? And if so how does the focus work, or ways around it??? Any help is greatly appreciated!!

My understanding is that the OCT-18 lenses are only compatible with mirrorless cameras like the GH2. I'd be reluctant to put two adapters together because single adapters account for the accurate flange distance needed for a full range of focus, but stacking two would compromise that distance and you'd probably lose infinity focus.

With regard to the lens barrel rotation, there is an OCT-18 adapter for Micro Four Thirds cameras that has a pin built in to prevent this from happening ([url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/OCT18-OCT-18-LOMO-lens-Konvas-anamorphic-GH2-GH1-AF100-AF101-4-3-adapter-/260910613284"]http://www.ebay.com/...r-/260910613284[/url]).

You might consider looking into the OCT-19 mount Lomos instead. They are typically more expensive, but I know that they can be adapted for use with Canon cameras ([url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/OCT19-OST-19-OCT-19-KONVAS-LOMO-to-Canon-EOS-5D-7D-60D-1D-T3i-550D-T2i-adapter-/260875544582"]http://www.ebay.com/...r-/260875544582[/url]).

      - PRICE: $599
      - STRETCH: 2X
      - FOCUS: Double-focus
      - PAYMENT METHOD: Paypal (fees to be paid after initial payment)
      - LOCATION: Switzerland
      - SHIPPING: Not included
      - INCLUDED: Redstan rear adapter with foot support and Redstan front clamp (value = $100).
      - CONDITION: No scratches and no fungus. Clean glass with the exception of a couple tiny spots on the rear glass. A couple of VERY light scratches that are only noticeable under a light source. Body shows some signs of wear but it works perfectly. Coatings are not flamboyant but the lens creates these signature purple/orange flares perfectly well. I wasn't able to get 1000% tack sharp images, so the lens might need to be serviced. It gives reasonably sharp results though, and my issue might actually come from my taking lens. Bought it from a fellow member of the Anamorphic Shooters group on FB and barely used it because of a decrease in filmmaking activity.
      - COMMENTS: I can send some footage via wetransfer. Open to offers.

      Amazing cage with built-in follow focus wheel perfect for the a7s, Canon and Nikon cameras. It's in used condition but works great. Redrock are a quality company with excellent customer service. I've found this cage to be exceptional as a one-man-band.
