  • while I do suspect that you might have been sarcastic with your question (?) if you are serious about fitting that lens to a digital camera, it can probably be done! Looks like a long focal length ...
  • I tried to photograph those frogs with several different lenses; first with M.Zuiko autofocus and it was a disaster... not a single one sharp. Even in manual focus was a really hassle to try to ...
  • while strictly not really C-mount (they are called S-mount and then adapted to different camera mounts) the Kodak Cine rival my M.Zuiko lenses and some excel indeed, at least for the style of ...
  • I find my copy of the Pen F 38mm f1.8 rather poor on Micro 4/3 sensor, wide open up to f4.  Care to post some samples of wide open images of distant subjects (infinity focus) so I can see how well ...
  • if you are a little bit handy you can probably pull the lens partially apart and re-grease the helicoid to make that focusing smooth as it should be. I just did an Industar-61 two days ago, took ...
  • oh boy, how I wish I would have found your info when I started my interest in Pentax-110 lenses. What is good to know that they fair OK on APS-C sensor too as I have a friend of mine that started ...
  • if you are referring to this image (https://flic.kr/p/GWKF6A) then it's a deception created with the perspective of a wider angle lens :-) It's a photograph at low tide with a small puddle in the ...
  • a few more descriptions on my mod for fitting an iris to the Pentax-110 lenses here: https://www.mu-43.com/threads/pentax-70mm-f-2-8-110.28802/page-2#post-913174
  • The back of the lens is JB Weld epoxy glued directly to the "silver" collar of the M39 adapter with perhaps 1.5mm shim. The iris aperture is available on evilBay: the 23-1.5mm aperture (37mm ...
  • it's a bit crude by some people's standard but works rather well, and did I mention that the whole thing is small? :-) Here shown assembled (adapter provided by moderator Tom Caldwell) Pentax-110 ...
  • you are welcome. I often get laughed when I mount one of those lenses on my "toy" cameras (Micro 4/3), while I just smile in return at the shmuck that barely can leave the comfort of his ...
  • Possibly the coverage of APS-C exceeds the image circle of lenses designed for 110 film format, which is pretty close in size to a 4/3 sensor. I don't notice enough vignetting, wide open or ...
  • Here are my best efforts with those ridiculed tiny lenses: https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnarlydog/albums/72157666759819355
  • the mushroom one is focus stacked since the DOF is so shallow with such a small subject. The Pentax-110 can be adapted with inexpensive commercially available adapters but I prefer to make my own, ...
  • very nice images with thoughtful selective focus
  • I don't do much digitization of slides but thank you for the tip. So true about wishing the images I took years ago would be on digital, of current crop, and then wishing the current ones would be ...
  • Thank you. The mushrooms one is also taken with a relatively small lens (Kodak Cine 63mm) that doesn't cost much but that lens is a more specialized one for close-up as it vignettes maybe a bit too ...
  • the Jupiter-11 is one of those lenses that I should have discovered way earlier and saved myself a lot of time and money trying other lenses hoping to get a compact lens that is light, sharp and ...
  • I have several different brands of C-mount adapters to M4/3 and the one that allows me to get the most lenses adapted has a recess diameter of 40mm, followed by step-down closer surface of 38.5mm ...
  • I have seen some great results from a Jupiter-9 too, so good that made me buy one. Only later I discovered that good results usually come from the old "silver" versions, not the black ones. The ...
