Spectacular macros with the Panasonic G1 and 75mm f1.9 Kinotel Anastigmat for macro (C Mount)


I confess, I normally don’t like macro photography. Most of the pictures I see on the web are just boring.
But what I saw today on dpreview forum is amazing! You can find even more spectacular pictures from the same author on flickriver.com. And you know what? They were taken with the “old” Panasonic G1 and the unknown 75mm Kinotel lens. What matters is not the camera…it is you!

Awesome pictures Jerry!

    Jerry does nice macro work. I especially like what he does with his Tokina 90/2.5 in FD mount (I have one as well).

    BTW, the eBay link you posted is not for the same lens he used, but for the f/2.5 version. Still, I agree that it’s the shooter, not the gear, that makes all the difference.

    Impressive work, absolutely impressive.

  • There’s a Japanese blog showing many, many interesting C-mount lens adaptations to µ4/3 bodies,

  • Dall-lens

    In the site in Japan, a lot of images of C mount lens exist.
    I think that I become good reference.


    Thank you.
