Hi,
I know that using 35mm lens on a GH2 give you roughly double the focal length. What would a half frame (olympus pen f) or a C mount lens give? I have one Bolex 75mm C mount lens designed for an H16RX. I also have three C mount lens for my Bolex H8RX camera. Would these be suitable for trying on a GH2?

I see a lot of different prices for lens adapters from a few quid to a couple of hundred. What is a good make to go for?
I also hope to try a few Lecia lens as well. Though I have not seen it listed is it likely a Thamber 9cm would work on the GH2?


cheers

I dont think the c-mount will cover the gh2 sensor without using the telecrop mode. You can always try but I'm guessing it will vignette. But don't take that as gospel. I could be wrong.
