I was able to give some new life to a dead Leica 50mm “Summar” f2.0 LTM (1930s) lens by hacking/adapting it to Canon EOS mount. To use this lens on a Canon DSLR I will still need to do some adjustments to the rear element. It is close. Works fine without adjustments and focuses to infinity on the EPIC X. All the smooth OOF and Leica glow you can handle and then some. This lens flares out of control… beautiful soft vintage looks.

I had some pristine uncoated lenses converted for use on my EPIC. I finally had a chance to test this one out …. an UNCOATED PREWAR XENON SCHNEIDER 50mm f2 (MINT). I am really happy with the look this lens renders so far. Uncoated flares, low contrast… SHARP yet creamy, Vintage style bokeh. Currently looking for a 35 to complete a small set. I have an 80mm on the way, I hope its in as good condition as this little 50mm… fingers crossed.

I had some pristine uncoated lenses converted to EOS mount. Will be profiling these lenses soon. Beautiful optics, and aberrations. Fitted to an EPIC X

5DMKII VIEW CAMERA   - TEST FOOTAGE

I’ve been getting a lot of requests to see video shot with this lens, so I’ve uploaded this clip. First half is footage straight out of the camera, second half is the same clip white balanced and a curve applied to increase contrast. Vintage uncoated lenses lack in the contrast department which is quite nice sometimes.

Next up a “HOW TO…” look at the 5Dmkii VIEW CAMERA.
