Q 12mm Pancake lens DIY

I thought I would share this. It's one of the great things about the Q with the short 9.2mm registration distance you have many options for making lenses.

and the full post

The Quirk (Pentax Q-mount 12mm f1:4.5 macro, central focus, pancake lens) | Wallace Koopmans Artlog

Let me know what you think.

Very creative. I like the photo samples, many have an odd appeal due to the distortions.

Thank you for adding the picture I thought it would show up but obviously not. For this one I've decided to leave the distortion so I have a Lens Baby style look if I want it.

Thank you very much, having gear is OK but creating with it I believe is the point.

Very cool; I always like optics with unique character. Nice shots too! And it's portable, which is always a plus.

Would love to hear a step-by-step about how you put this together.

Pretty cool, a Qute lens baby

I like the look, although it's "sprinkle to taste" rather than standard fare.

Speaking of body cap lenses... C'mon, pentax, release the Q's promised body cap lens. After seeing what the new olympus body cap lens puts out, I'm jealous!
