C-mount Scenes

Challenge #14 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
Originally intended for 16mm movie film and other small image formats, C-mount lenses can be adapted to mount and focus to infinity on mirrorless camera bodies such as the Olympus/Panasonic micro 4/3 and Sony NEX APS-C. These lenses often are tiny, very fast, and relatively cheap, especially for shorter focal lengths. My Instructable about using C-mount lenses, http://www.instructables.com/id/C-Mount-Lenses-for-mirrorless-micro-43-and-APS-C/ , concludes that C-mount lenses generally don't make impressive images using these larger sensors. Submit photos that prove me wrong....
