Hello!
Last week, I visited a "old" family's friend who want to sell his Angenieux C mount collection (11 lenses in total and two Bell&Howell camera's!!!!). I will try to sell it for him because he is a little bit too old for that and doesn't have even Internet! As for "present", I could keep one (or two!) lens for myself, quite a good deal for me I think Very Happy .....
Anyway, here are my first quick shots with this "famous" Angenieux lenses on my G1 (click on the pictures for a better resolution Wink )....

1/Angenieux 15mm f/1.3 type R41 @ f1.3 (due to a lot vignetting, it's not realy usefull with the G1 so just for the fun! ):


2/Angenieux 25mm f/0.95 type M1 (also quite a lot vignetting)
first two samples @ 0,95 and third one @ f/2:




3/Angenieux 50mm f/1.5 type S5, all shots wide open except last one @ f5.6 or f/8! (also a little bit vignetting but can be removed easily with PP):







I must say that it was almost my first shots with the G1 and it was also a very cold and cloudy day, so may be not the best samples you have seen with this combo Confused .....
I found the 50mm really impressive (more than the 25mm on my test), very sharp wide open and I find the bokeh very pleasant and "creamy"...
Some test shots with the 2.5/75mm will follows later, I don't want to borrow you to much for the first time !!!!!

Thanks for looking and any comments are welcome Wink
Pascal

A 4/3 cam and these old lenses must really be fun!

Very nice pictures. I dont mind about vigneting, not too much with this camera, it gives some character to the shots.

Any idea what these lenses would produce on an APS-C (I dont want to buy a GF1 right now Wink)?

Regards,
Xavier

Yes it's really fun Very Happy ......I'm really impressed with the results of this lenses but in fact, I'm not really impressed with this camera Confused ....May be because I dont have enough experience with this cam but until now, I must say that I'm a little bit disappointed Sad ...I have also a Nikon D700 witch is a very very good cam and it's an other word of course Rolling Eyes ....The G1 is I think a great little "vacation" camera and in fact, thats' one reason why I bought it. The other reason why I bought this camera is because I love to use old MF lenses and it's unfortunately almost not possible with Nikon (except the Nikkor Ai lens of course). What I found really bad with the G1 is shooting with low light, the electronic viewer (and/or the live view) is then not so easy to use and above 400 iso are the pictures very bad/noisy (again, I must not compared with the D700 Confused )...........
To be honest, I'm not sure thats a good idea to buy such "expensive" lens for this camera! The Angenieux 0.95/25mm is I think overpriced (prices on e-bay I mean!) and I will never buy such expensive lens for the G1, but may be I will change my mind when I will have more experience with this cam Rolling Eyes ......

Merci Xavier Wink
I have seen on Internet (some MF forum in Japan for example and on Flick), some guys who have adapted C mount lenses for APS-C (Canon and Nikon) Shocked ..I have no idea how it's possible (but I would really like to try a C mount lens with my Nikon!) but some pictures made with C lenses on APS-C are really impressive Shocked ...
Click on this link for example:

This guy is crazy I think Very Happy ........

Hi!
I didn't know that he was also a member of this forum but do you know him Rolling Eyes ???
Few weeks ago, I have sent an e-mail to Jore (via Flick) in order to may be get some more info about the C lens conversion in Nikon mount but as I expected, I never received any answer Rolling Eyes ....
Anyway, this guy has an unbelievable great lens collection (and not only C mount lens!), and seems to be a "genius" with lens conversion Very Happy .....

superb samples!
as for the G1, it is still a first generation sensor way behind canikon level
body pass, lens stay; m4:3 sensor will get better

I was afraid you were going to like the 50mm Wink That was the one I have been looking for and had almost doubted it existed... Thanks for the pictures, very nice to see the whole family and some examples shot with them. BTW, are the 25mm ones all M1s?

Hi Stefan,
Yes the 1.5/50mm is a great lens but I don't know yet if I'm gonna keep it Wink ...but I thought you already found one Question ....
And yes, all the 0.95/25mm are M1 type....

Pich900, I also thought I had found a 50mm, but it turned out the phone connection was bad, they sent me a 15mm and are out of the 50s... Sad Let me know if/when you sell it Smile BTW, did you get my PMs? My PC does strange things today...

Just adding a few from the 25/0.95 Angenieux. I need to use this one more, in 1:1 format it really gives great results IMHO. This was at f2 IIRC. These show daughter, father - and the little brother...

Father and little brother are two peas in a pod! Shocked
(in Italy we say "are like two drops of water")
The lens seems very good, congratulations.
