Infrared Anyone?

I am not using my recently acquired (back-up) EM5.2 nearly as much as I anticipated, so I am pondering sending it out to for IR modification to the sensor. I would love to hear from the m43 community here:

  • What internal (sensor) or external (filter) IR photography have you tried?
  • For internal IR modifications, what company and process (e.g 720nm or 850nm) did you try?
  • Did you also buy the sensor coating to avoid reflections?
  • Did the IR conversion degrade the image quality (e.g. smeared corners)?
  • What m43 lenses have you tried with it, and what works well and what doesn't (hotspots)?
  • Any IR samples from your 43 kit you could share here?
  • Share any thoughts or experiences on M43 & IR?

To give you an idea what I am looking for, here is an example of the kind of IR image that has given me the inspiration to try this:

This is made by Dierk Topp (using IR converted Sony A7R @ 720mm), and you can see this and other samples from his Flickr feed here:
