It is a heavy but still portable projector lens. No iris, but sharp wide open!

My apology, it should be a Meopta Meostigmat 70mm f/1.4 ! I have confused this set of pictures with the 140/1.8 ones!

For those of you who are interested in the Meostigmat.. this is a link to another Thread, showing the Meopta Meostigmat 1.4/70mm on Canon FF (5D MKII) and Sony NEX 7... including the way the lens was prepared to work on those cams...

Hi, Henry . Thanks for the thread which provided very detail instructions on how to convert it to a M42 lens. My problem is I don't have the skills and equipment to convert it in the same way as you did! I envy you.

There are more Meostigmat lenses... i converted a Meostigmat 1/70mm to Sony NEX 7... i will report later... and of course, only possible if you have the skills and equipment for doing each kind of conversion.

Could you show us, how do you manage to bring the Meostigmat to your cam?

Cheers
Henry

My conversion is simple. I bought a M58 focusing helicoil and inserted the whole lens into it. Then I stepped it down to M42 by using a M42-M58 ring.




The final step is to put a cheapo M25/M42 to M4/3 adapter purchased from eBay and the lens can be used with infinity focus.

Great set of pictures, they impressed me enough to buy an identical lens. Smile
If you have links to the parts you posted above it would be much appreciated.

I also found a matching 35/1.3 but I don't have the funds to get it too.

STOP:

the Meopta Meostigmat 1.3/35mm is a totally different lens and the register - distance is completely different from the 1.4/70mm and the way to adapt the 1.3/35mm not identical to the 1.4/70mm.

Th 1.3/35mm will definetely not reach infinity in a helicoid like shown here.

I did a conversion also with the 1.3/35mm for a Sony NEX 7 cam... a totally different way is neccessary.. !!!!

So the way is only useable for the 1.4/70mm Meostigmat.

Cheers
Henry

Here are 3 of all 4 lenses (the 1/70mm is missing) i converted to Sony NEX.. (register distance 18mm instead of 19.x mm) so this makes it more difficult for µFT cams to convert them for that standard. Mechanical easier for NEX, but IQ maybe better on µFt..



And here some pics about the conversion...



As you can see... you only need the lens group from the rear... its a complete screwed-in package. You dont need the big Meopta tubus... its only for compatibility with the filmprojector - lensholder

In second step you have ot shorten this tube with the optical group on the right side of image.

The register - distance for the reach of infinity is about 24mm... so you have only 4.xmm for a focus helicoid on a µFT cam..

As you can see in picture, i shorten the Meopta rear group holder to fit into an helicoid part from VNEX System tools.

Then i worked on a lathe to get a wider diameter in an "Zebra" LTM to NEX adaptor... to let the lens group intrude as deep as possible into the adaptor..

Here are the converted lens 1.3/35mm... on a Sony NEX 7



As you can see... no chance to use a cheap asian helicoid as shown in this thread for that lens

Here are some pictures with the 35mm sorry for entering this thread... but i think its a good thing to give some hints and warnings for people which do have interest in doing such experiments with the Meoptas..
(if this posting is on the wrong place or disturbing, so please moderators, move it into an new thread)










In the next image you can see the sweetspot of the lens, which perfectly covers the 16mm... outside of this 16mm diameter, the lens is going to get big barrel distortion. But the lens is a very good "playing tool"... Very Happy



Cheers
Henry

Thanks for the heads up Re: the 35/1.3 being a different registration.
The pictures from it still look interesting.

My 70/1.4 just arrived, now to figure out my conversion.

I'll be converting to NEX mount, so I have a slightly different requirements, but wanted to confirm how you put yours together.
Is the lens just friction fit in to your helicoid? Then the helicoid connects to m58-m42 ring, which is connected to the thin m42/m25 to m4/3 adapter?
