I dare to say i have gathered quite amount of mf glass. 7 full frame and 4 c-mount.

How do you get on with vignetting?  I have a few C-mount lenses but most of them either vignette on M4/3 of the aperture ring fouls the recessed portion of the adapter rendering it inoperable.

the full frame lenses give me quality, the c-mount lenses are just for fun/night shooting (6-12mm f1.4)
i shoot mf lenses a lot, more than my native (i own just 2)
my favourites are the minolta 50mm f2, tokina 28mm f2.8.
the minolta must be focused using magnified view since it has a narrow dof.
the tokina can be focused without magnification, although its not fail safe.
i tap the screen and i have full magnified view, half press the shutter button, and normal view pops up. simple and effective.
