This is the last one I swear!! but also another lens that really impressed me was this olympus 24mm it has quite a heavily damaged rear element from a drop but it does ok, you can get tilt adapters for OM mount but they are quite costly.

I used quite a few different lenses to get the fit right and a base from a teleconverter so that it could turn freely and a piece of rubber tubing to seal it off internally and loads of time with a dremel:(, works nicely on APSC but think the corners would be too bad on full frame

I. Like that, it's a great use of a common lens. And it works a treat. Like 1 small

It really does, I never really liked it on MFT but it has grown on me with the bigger sensor, sort of one of those lenses that's always in my bag Wink

Excellent. I want to try something similar on pentax 67 lenses for my a7ii. I have a 2 x converter that came in with no glass, negotiated with seller to get it for 5 USD. The sticking point for me is the price of P67- Nex adapters. Reluctant to spend 50 bucks on a project that I could very well trash. Your work has encouraged me!

Glad to hear, it won't be easy, I had loads of lens bits to play around with till I found a combination that worked. The pre built adapters for the 67 lenses are hellishly expensive.

One thing to remember when doing the adapter is to try and get the tilting point as close as possible to the actual lens mount and not the body mounting point. This is so that you get to use most of the image circle from the len's and not just the edges.

Found a P67 eos adapter mislabeled for 20 USD. Now to find the time! Any hints? I've never seen one of theses in person.
