Re: David Muench using tiny sensor digicams OT

Henry,

Just for debate.  I have used the Pentax Q (has IBIS) with its tiny sensor but GM1 sized body and D-mount lenses.  C&D mount lenses can be very variable (and is a subject all of its own) but I have just a few that are of excellent quality such as the Yashinon 38mm f1.4. On the Q this is a FF Eq of about 210mm f1.4.

For all the disadvantages this set up can give long-telephoto use in a very small package and surprisingly good images.

I have not ventured very deeply into longer C&D-mount lenses as I don't really need more than what the 38mm can provide and also that you can buy a few clunkers in the process as I have found out to my cost. But a (say) 75mm D mount would give a pretty good reach for not much lens real estate.

M4/3 really struggles (often vignettes) with C mount and D mount is out of the question of course.
