I removed/unscrewed the spiral for projection use which reveals a 50mm thread, then its a 52-50 step down ring then into a helicoid which you can buy here 

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M52-to-M42-Adjustable-Focusing-Helicoid-35mm-90mm-35-90mm-35mm-to-90mm-Adapter-/170840812847?pt=UK_Photography_CameraLenses_Lens_caps_hoods_adaptors_ET&hash=item27c6e7ed2f

 

Then just add some M42 extension tubes depending on the camera, for mirrorless you will need size 1 + 2.

 

The tripod mount ring is padded with some rubber strips cut from a sheet so its nice and sturdy.for this 4 inch front optic

 

This lens is part of a family which mount the same way, the set is 

 

1 ISCO Ultra AV F3.5 200-300mm purchased in England for £20 
2 ISCO Cinelux AV F3.5 110-200mm purchased in Germany for €14 
3 ISCO AV F3.5 60-110mm purchased in US for $11 

 

so the helicoid gets a lot of use as well as for other lenses....

 

The lenses suffer from PF in high contrast areas which is easy to remove in post, see the 1:1 pixel below. The image is pretty good at 1080p

Just curious if anyone has used the the m42->m43 speedbooster clones and tried out, say, the Tair 11A or Mir 20 f/2.5?

I've got the M42-m43 speedbooster from jinfinance & it works with all my M42 lenses:

Super Taks 35mm & 55mm

Mir 24M, Mir-1B

Helios 44-2 & Helios 40-2

Tair 11a

Jupiter 9 & 37a

Yashica ML primes are some of the most sought-after vintage manual focus lenses.
widely regarded as Carl Zeiss Distagon Equivilants the Yashica ML prime lenses are superb for Cinematography.
The ML series was the pro line of Multicoated lenses developed and produced by Yashica (Kyocera), to sit between their consumer grade DSB line and the state-of-the-art Zeiss T* within the Contax / Yashica system.
According to 'Lens Doctor' Eddie Houston, these lenses were the 'L-series of the era'
Being 35mm format lenses, they cover Full Frame (Canon 5D, 1D, 6D etc.)
They perform extremely well even at wide open aperture when used on a 'crop frame' system.

180+ degree focus throw allows for accurate control - ideal for cinematography use with a Follow Focus kit.

The set includes the Carl Zeiss Biometar, this is a superb legendary lens very sharp and used on Hollywood Movies as it is so good (it is a very sharp fast medium format lens)

180+ degree focus throw allows for accurate control - ideal for cinematography use with a Follow Focus kit.
Included here are:

these lenses are full metal casings - no cheap plastic like kit lenses.
all have full metal lens hoods added - these just screw on the front and help stop lens flare - and large lens caps for the front hoods (see pics)
rear lens caps are also included

The set comes in a aluminium flight case

 

PM me if you are interested I will do a reduced price for EOSHD members.

Was poking around for a deal on one of these 35-70s, stumbled upon a relatively unspoken gem (or so the critics claim) that is the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8.

The Nikon version has an aperture dial, runs about the same price as that Nikkor zoom I mentioned, yet has a larger useful range and has been compared optically to the Canon L of this type. Its no 50-150, but for the price I'd be crazy to pass this mid-range up!


Just wanted to follow up on this. Apparently there are 2 versions of the Tamron, one with a gold ring (black letters) that was made in Japan, and another one that is black with gold letters, made in China. Don't get the black one!

I figured they'd work, I was unclear with my question, sorry. How do they look, what with the reduced crop factor and the extra stop.. Are they worth playing with?   :)

As you know the Russain lenses aren't perfect, but that's what gives them their character. And yes, you get [some of] that character back with this type of cheap speedbooster simply because you have a reduced crop factor - its still m43 size, but its better than S16 in terms of how much of the lens is used.

For video they are perfect & i'm not an anal pixel peeper, so i haven't even bothered trying to see if they are soft at the edges. They probably are a little bit, but i don't care as the images look lovely & no one ever looks at the edges of a shot/screen anyhow.

Just a basic maybe stupid question. Is my Pana 14mm on my GF3 actually 14mm? And is the 14mm, 52mm on my BMPCC?

 

panny GF3 has a x2 crop , so are you referancing Full Frame equivilants? is that what you mean ?

 

14mm on a GF3 is wide = FF 28mm

Anyone have experience with manual focusing on the Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4? Is the speed constant? As in, it doesnt focus faster or slower based on how fast you turn the ring? And what is the degree of the throw?

 

Also I know that a 24mm lens on APS-C has the same field of view as a 35mm on full frame, but does it have the same compression?

 

Also, is there any way to create a hard infinity focus stop for modern lenses such as the Sigma 18-35mm?

 

Also, how does one add a follow focus gear to a lens that has grooves on the focus ring? eg. '>

Dilemma: To sell or not to sell my Nikkor 14-24mm 2.8 for video

 

I have a Sigma 18-35 and a Tokina 11-16. Both Nikon mount, used with a SpeedBooster on a BMPCC. I never found the need to pick up the 14-24 after purchasing these lenses, especially considering how big and heavy that thing is. If I sell it I could use it for critical upgrades (such as audio-related gear). But I hear all over that and agree that the 14-24 is one of, if not the best wide angle lens available. Should I sell it? Or stick with my current audio set up consisting of a zoom, H1, H2n, and an Audio Technica lav mic.

Hi folks,

 

Here is some footage shot with :

  • Olympus 45mm 1.8
  • Canon FD 35-105mm 3.5
  • Helios 135mm 2.8 (m42)

I use the RJ Lens Turbo FD to m43 with the 35-105. Pretty happy with this 3 lenses, really good for the price. Just in search of a good wide angle.

      I'm looking to swap my Zeiss ZF.2 lenses for the equivalent Canon mountable Zeiss ZE lenses.
      Each of my lenses comes with 16:9 adaptors (which adapt the lenses to EF bodies, with de-clicked aperture and AF confirmation). 
      I have the following ZF.2 lenses: 21mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.0, 50mm f/2.0 (Makro Planar), 100mm f/1.4 (Makro Planar).

      I'm really considering making a big upgrade to the URSA, but I've already invested in a fleet of Canon FDs. I've been doing some research on FD to PL mounts without a lot of luck. I know ARRI make an FD adapter to the ARRI mount (PL??) but besides that seems there's zilch out there. Some talk about machining the lenses to fit the new flange but I was hoping someone here knows of something...
