The same sorts of nasty non-reversible modifications are being done to C-mount lenses that don't fit perfectly into C-Mount to Micro Four-Thirds adapters (because of the MFT register distance, the C-mount lens needs to be somewhat recessed into the adapter). People are also doing optical modifications to C-mount lenses to unnaturally enlarge their image circles to cover more of the MFT sensor. Of course, if they had a Pentax Q, they wouldn't need to go hacking up any C-mount lenses for them to work perfectly with adapters on the Q, because they'd just work! It makes me sad.
