anyone try a reflex C-mount lens?

I have seen a couple listings recently on eBay for C-mount lenses such as this one that has a reflex prism and a viewfinder. This seems like it'd be a very interesting way to shoot with a Pentax Q; wondering if it would clear the top of the camera (and what would be really cool is a bracket that mounts on the flash shoe!)

Very cool! So sounds like the reflex optics are designed to have the viewfinder to the side of the lens, which doesn't clear the Q's body. Would be fun to try out but not for what these lenses usually go for on ePay.

Man, that flickr user sure has a collecting bug!

Oh dear, I have been diagnosed with ancient LBA. It's official.

This particular lens was about $30 on the 'Bay, I was so excited I didn't notice the shipping was also $30. Arrived in a beat-up box with a USPS sticker for $6.

A good C-mount reflex lens to have would be a P. Angenieux 12-120 f/2.2. I have one without the viewfinder and it makes very nice images. However, these things are much more expensive.
