its not one of those wierd mounts that has issues

I have 3 different MD adaptors all different makes and they all work fine no issues

 

just make sure you move the aperture lever on the back of the lens to it activates the aperture

I jam a piece of plastic tubing in it so it always works

      Looking to sell my GH5(mint condition), with battery grip, along with a metabones speedbooster, and three Minolta lenses. Also comes with 4 batteries.
       
      The lenses are 24mm 2.8, 35mm 1.8, and 50mm 1.4
      The Battery grip is a great addition, letting you record continuously for at least 3 hours straight. The image coming out of the GH5 is pretty amazing. Incredibly detailed image, free from moire and aliasing. The IBIS is amazing allowing you to shoot handheld without any shake. The speedbooster gives you a S35 field of view and an extra stop of light. Combined with the fast minolta glass you can get some really nice images at 3200 iso in low light. The minolta lenses give the image a cinematic feel. The 35mm 1.8 is especially nice being very sharp wide open. The GH5 allows you to crop in to get more reach out of the lenses too.
      Selling because I recently purchased an URSA mini and already have two Fuji cameras. This was my second time purchasing a GH5 and I'll probably be back to it at some point, but alas this one has to go for now. The GH5 is like the ultimate run and gun camera, at least for the price.

      Great condition lens + micro four thirds adapter. Used it on my blackmagic micro cinema camera. Lens is made for 16mm sensor. 
      $315.00 USD.

      Hey, all. We have our rokinon cine set for sale that is no longer needed. Comes with a pelican case and assorted tiffen filters. 
      Lenses are virtually unused and was bought for  a limited project. Would be perfect for any m43 camera especially the gh5.
      Located in San Diego, California. But can ship at buyers expense (will be pricey for case)







      Price is $2000 flat for the whole bundle, good deal considering everything is literally brand new.

      Perfect optical condition. No scratches or marks on the glass. Minor cosmetic scratches on the metal.

      I have posted this on facebook as well. Here's all the info:
      There's a nice set of s35 primes I found to go with my iscorama, and I need some extra cash to fund it, so I'm about to make a heart-tearing decision to sell my super nice anamorphic setup.
      This is single focus.
      Isco s8 2x, Distagon, Rangefinder, clamps and a rail mount.
      Anamorphic lens – Isco s8, clean glass, no makrs/scratches/fungus, comes in original ISCORAMA SET box. Modded to infinity (I made a tutorial about how to do it here https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=dmMiuMFQSuU ) Barrel of the lens is scratched where all the clamps attach, you can only see it when clamps are off.
      Taking lens – CY Contax Zeiss Distagon 28 2.8, with green aperture mark (german-made) in like-new condition. Glass is clean, not a mark on it.
      Distagon has an adapter for micro 4/3, but it's wobbly and I would suggest getting a more expensive one if you will not use rail support.
      On the front is SLRmagic rangefinder, no witness marks. I bough it from HonKong before they were available in stores, paid $500 to be one of the first people to use it. One cool thing about it is that the 77mm back can be detached, and it reveals the 82 mm threads, which is what more expensive versions have. Not sure if it's standard for all of them or if it's some sort of a pre-production batch. So you can put it closer to the front of the anamorphic adapter, and save a couple of precious millimeters to avoid vignetting. I've never experienced any image softening with this one. Images have virtually same sharpness with the adapter on/off, only slight color change due to blue coating.
      Two custom made clamps with bunch of spare thumb screws – these were made specifically for the isco, so they fit it really nice. They are made of aluminum, so are lightweight, but have much thicker bodies then anything you can find on the market, including redstan stuff (tho they are not anodized and don't look as good). Clamps are real heavy-duty, I used this setup with follow focus and there's no way these would ever move/loose grip/mess up your alignment.
      Isco has a black original clamp/ring mounted to the rail support bracket, it provides great support, and feels very solid. I never had any issues with this setup, and always used it on rails with follow focus.
      Camera in the images is not included.
