Chinon 8mm film movie lens ...
Lens: Chinon 8-40mm f/1.2 - 8mm movie lens Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Poitiers 
Posted By: Jean Poitiers, 11-06-2014, 01:08 AM


Another exposť of a modified 8mm movie lens. Here a Chinon 8-40mm f/1.2. I removed an inner lens element/group and reversed plus re-position the rear element group. Here's a first test sample using a bellows to achieve focus. Again a "wide open" shot since there is no aperture present ... Salut, J

Your supply of flowers seems to be as infinite as your lens supply.....! adapting these film lenses to the pentax is admirable enough, but getting into reversing rear elements, borders on the techno genius...Bon Jour!
