Angenieux was a French lens maker that did some lenses for Leica, Nikon, and Canon, with L-R, N & C-fd mount. The price for this lens in '82-'84 was about $1000, and then they went belly up. Crazy prices on eBay now is about $1400. They're probably worth half of that ...

I use mostly Leica R lenses on my Canon via adapter, and focus in Live View x10 when time alows it. So yes to your question, I use Leica R to EOS adapter with the Angenieux.

Optical performance of the lens is better than most of todays lenses, but focus and aperture are manual. If you get one for $500 like me, don't hesitate to buy (unless it's Canon fd mount)

Hey, maybe the FZ150 will be better with manual focus? I'll bet it can! Must test that 8-)
