A new reworked Rodenstock f/0.75 from jjeying

Share

The eBay reseller “jieying-usa” made the second reworked Rodenstock 50mm f/0.75 for Micro Four Thirds (he already made one lens a few months ago). It fits on your camera without the need of an adapter. The lens focuses from 3ft to infinity. Wide open, images are very soft but unlike C-mount lenses the circle covers the full m43 size. You can see a few image samples on Flickr.

    its an interesting idea modifying a legacy lens to a direct mount. it saves the hassle to find the right adapter which is tight enough preventing any flex between lens & body. I am having this problem right now with my metabones adapter :-(

      These lenses are usually taken from X-ray apparatus and need additional optical elements in order to be able to focus up to infinity. These additional elements alter the focal length of these lenses as well and the image quality is usually poor.

      I had a Kowa 55/1.0 with a similar modification and was glad that the transaction could be reversed. It looks pretty cool when attached to a mFT camera and gives some interesting effects but nothing more.

        yeah, i was actually thinking about the higher grade legacy lenses such as certain fast M mount lenses from voigtlander. I own the nokton 50 1.1 and its an awesome lens, but at 1.1 its very tricky to get the focus right when the adapter shows some flex

    I want a fast lens as much as the next guy, but this thing looks too soft to be very useful. If it was cheap I might get it to play around with, but for the asking price it just doesn’t make sense.
