C mount lens reviews (featuring Switar 26mm f/1.1)

Hi there - many of you saw my E-P1 review a few months back ( http://www.lawrenceripsher.com/blog/2009/09/olympus-ep1-review-diary.html )... well since then I've been building a quiet interest in C mount lenses and have acquired a couple.

One is the Switar 26mm f/1.1 (effective 52mm on the E-P1 / GF1) which I am starting to develop an unhealthy love for :). You'll see why when I post a review of this lens over the next few days - but the point of this post was to gauge interest in this sort of thing. I have a few more knocking around here (Angenieux 25mm f1.4, Switar 25mm f1.4, Switar 75mm f1.9) and if I get some interest I'll add them to my backlog of articles to write. These are very interesting lenses with some unique characteristics but there's precious little information on the net on this topic so I'm planning on filling that void.


Here's a couple of shots with the Switar 26mm f1.1 (including the last one which was from this weekend):
