    Just curious, has anybody tried this combination out yet? I've seen some beautiful work done on Flickr but I have yet to see much video done with this lens.

    I've never even heard of that lens. But the thought of using that sucker at night makes my bank account weep for its life.

    The Canon f/0.95 is actually a rather cheap lens, and a true gem for the money!

    There are some things to consider when using this lens with the GH1...

    There are two versions of the 50mm f/0.95. One is made for the Canon 7 rangefinder bodies and the other is a "TV" lens. Both lenses are optically the same, however the "TV" lens aren't designed for the Canon 7 rangefinders and loses functionality when mounted to them (not much of a concern for a GH1 user).

    What's important to consider for mounting these lenses on a GH-1 is the mount. The f/0.95 is designed for the unique external mount of the Canon 7 so you won't find any adapters for it.

    There are two solutions for this, and they are both relatively simple:

    1.) The first is to use a C-mount adapter. The "TV" lens came with a C-mount adapter (which also acted as a rear lens cap), and the same adapter also fits the normal lens as well; the adapter usually goes for around $60-100. From there you can just use the C-mount to 4/3rds adapter to use this lens on your GH-1.

    2.) The second method is to have a converted lens. The popularity of this lens means that there are a lot of Leica M mount conversions for this lens. The converted lenses tend to be more expensive online, but you can have any lens converted to an M-mount for around $150-200. From there you just use an M-mount to 4/3rds adapter to fit the lens on your GH-1.

    There are stores like this that do conversions :

    We'll see some footage with this lens eventually...

    In the mean time I did a head to head of some 25mm F0.95 lenses that I own on the G1 @ 16:9. They are lots o fun:

    iso 100....wow. Looked at your comparison. The Soligor is pretty.

    Upshot, which of those 25mm .95s do you prefer? I might be looking for something in that length for darkened room baby photos and obviously a lot of baby portraiture coming up. How are they to work with on the G1/GH1?

    It's almost impossible to find but I prefer the soligar. I recently picked up the Kodak Cine Ektar 25mm F1.4 which is better @1.4 for sure and there is my Switar 26mm F1.1 which is also very very nice.

    Out of all the 25mm c-mounts I've amassed... I'd put them in this order:
    1. Macro Switar 26mm F1.1 (full sens coverage @ 16:9, Joy to use, exceptional performance, lovely bokeh)
    2. Cine Ektar 25mm F1.4 (full sens coverage @ 4:3!!, easy to use, great performance, butter bokeh)
    3. Soligar 25mm F0.95 (vigettes but my best @ F0.95 (from what I've seen the Berthiot 25mm F0.95 beats it though), little challenge to handle but not bad, great performance, decent bokeh)
    4. Schneider Xenoplan 25mm F1.9 (full sens coverage @ 4:3!! easy to use after I did some modifications (focus grip), wonderful performance, so so bokeh)

    It's tough... they all have characteristics to like. For example I have a Taylor Hobson Filmo 25mm F1.9 that gives the flattest field I've ever seen (full sensor coverage to boot) with a wonderful sharp vintage feel... but it' s really tough to handle and flares like crazy (which can be cool in it's own right!)

    The 2 c-mount lenses I have both vignette:
    Angenieux 12-120 mm 1:2.2 covers maybe 2/3 of the sensor
    Cosmicar 12.5mm 1:1.4 almost full sensor coverage

    I am still hunting for the right wide angle lens with 1:1.something below 4
    any tips in the c-mount range that really cover the sensor?
