As Santo gave us his opus on the technology and advancement of super8 it got me to thinking: I still do not know much about lens mounts. Can anyone chime in and tell us your favorite lens mount and why? Q: Do "C" mounts that screw in have the potential of varying the postion of the length of the back element to the cameras film plate and thus giving a potential soft focus? What lens mount flavors do we see in super8? What's a "M" and a bayonet? Is a PL a realitivily newer type of mount? What of Nikon mount.
