Cheap 50mm 1.2 :-)
3

Inspired by a thread on Mu-43.com I've brought a 50mm 1.2 projector lens for $10, and have been able to mount it via an old astronomy helicoid I had around.

There's no aperture control so it's wide open only till I rig some waterhouse stops, which means I can't test it outside today (the brightest day I seen this year)

A quick test shot indoors:

Thanks for the inspiration & tips @GnarlydogOZ
