Among my smallest C-mount lenses so far. It's a rather inexpensive lens compared to what it can do in my opinion. Very Happy

Here is a couple of samples:

I have one of those too, but it looks VERY different.
I must make a pic of the lens on my G1 to show you.

In the mean time, here's a pic shot with this combo :



Swirly bokeh king !

I have seen this version many times on Ebay and I think it's a very good looking lens to Very Happy

Looks to perform quite nice, I love swirly bokeh, but I still think the real swirly bokeh king is the Cooke kinic Wink

The Cooke Kinic is the one to prefer IMHO. It has the better image quality, much less corner vignetting, an impressive swirl and a better focusing helicoid which allows closeups (see my published examples here on mflenses).

I also bought the spherical version of this lens. Here is a couple of interesting bokeh shoots Wink

Motion Sickness in a picture!

Very interesting. Maybe a central subject would show the peculiarities of the lens better?

I find these lenses difficult to afford and to find.

Good buy!

I'll give you a tip, I often buy 16mm cameras with lenses. Then I just store the 16mm cameras and use the c mount lenses on my m 4/3 camera Wink

I paid 26$ for this lens with camera two weeks ago Very Happy

And I have seen many go for 20 - 30$...

Not on eBay you haven't! javascript:emoticon('Sad')

I am house bound more or less, so the flea markets are out. Maybe I should try some classifieds. javascript:emoticon('Embarassed')

Clever old you, anyway! I acquire so much trash that the treasure really excites! You must get a huge kick! And the wife is happy too!~ You are ensuring a pension fund! The cine lenses are a real investment as they cost megabucks new nowadays and lack all those interesting foibles.

I got a 16mm cine cam and serital lens for $61, on fleabay.

No designation as "serital" but same patent number and an early serial number, less than an other example of serital. Very good.

TTH.
