For those of you with various 25mm, 20mm, or 15mm Cine Ektars with large apertures (e.g., f1.9 or even f2.8), you may want to try reversing them on a long bellows. When used at f/2.8, the Kodak Cine Ektar 25/1.9 (1inch model) is as sharp as a Zeiss Luminar 25/3.5 lens from 10:1

See these photos taken with a reversed Cine Ektar 25/1.9:

I'd have it adapted to the Minolta mounts. I have two Minolta bellows, one of them the Auto Bellows version which has swings and shifts.

When reversed, these lenses can be used on any camera, including even 4x5 or 8x10 large format camera, if used at a large enough magnification.
