Here ´s a photo of my ISCO Kiptar I adapted to the MFT system.
It is a semi Petzval system, a little bit different because it has two cemented elements.
This were needed because of the higher speed of the lens.
It has a goog shapness in the middle and soft to the edges but with the now build in aperture I can manage the softness in a wide range. The aperture has 15 blades.
I milled the bayonett socket by myself as well.
Not shown in the picture but necessary is a large lens hood, it gives much better contrast with it and the colours are getting great.

The lens is really useable, here I used f/2.2 and the Panasonic G6 @ISO 400
Sample were shot at the Andreas Feininger Exhibition in Berlin, Bröhan Museum.

Very nice - I am interested in what parts you used to mount this lens (after you sawed it in two for aperture placement, unless you didn't put it between the elements).

Nicely done. I'm a bit jealous as I don't have access to, or knowledge of working with true milling machinery. All my adaptations are some combination of drills, files, glues,screws and goop (typically epoxy but sometimes superglue).
