LG, thanks for the reply.

I asked the question because I had the FD 85/1.2L too and it was converted to EOS mount.
But the position of rear "fixed" optic element was unchanged, so it hit the mirror.

Previously I and the lens repairman planned to move the optic forward, but through some advices that I read on the internet (including from past FM threads) - which said that moving the rear part could degrade the image quality (sharpness etc., especially at close distance) - we decided to keep the position of the rear element as is.
Do you spot some issues I mention above on your lens?

Hi,

My travels through NV pawn shops are sometimes great and sometimes "meh". I found this CCTV lens (attached to a vidicon camera) for $8.00. After a good internal cleaning and machining a spacer, it works well. Not sure who the real "Made in Japan" manufacturer is; re-branded as Norelco TV Lens (N.V. Philips Eindhoven Division). Looks good to me...

Window frame done on NEX 5n with FD 85L @ f1.2 in front.

As said in another recent thread, shallow DOF is totally a crutch. But I suck at photography, so it's all I have to go on!

Just picked up a 50/1,2 Nikon AI-s. I really am enjoying it wide open.











Both are taken wide open on a 5D Classic. I don't get the shallow DOF like I was expecting however.. I need to get an 85/1,4

Nice ones, Leady - the last especially has a very cool look to it.

Some cross-posted from the Voigtlander and/or Nex images thread. Nex-7 with the CV 35/1.2. I was using a var-ND (and hence polarizing) filter on it.
