I was wondering about the quality and The little lip there on the front with what looks like a some kind of spring bar, I'm assuming thats for filters to be set in, but I'm not sure and I doubt if this one comes with the instructions. I know the 16mm versions cam in both 1.5 (the same as the 8mm) and 2x aspect ratios and that the 2x are virtually impossible to find (WHICH if this is one of those, I'd be ecstatic). I was going to use this to screw around with for anamorphic composition and for Del Norte' to use (though I don't have a de-anamophic viewfinder attachment for this) but CONSIDERED using it with some of my Lomo OCT-18 mount lenses on the Konvas KSR-1 as the lenses are small and almost the size of a 16mm lens so they might work. I have the 100 and 135mm lenses in spherical in addition to the rest of the standard set and am looking to find more as I can afford them. I can also use the OCT-18 lenses with an OCT-19 mount adapter on the Kinor 35C Rotovision 5000 (BOTH of which I DO have a de-anamorphic viewfinder for!). IF the quality is decent (AND that's probably a BIG if) I might be able to use this in conjunction with the Lomo round fronts I have for close up lenses. I would LOVE to even FIND a 100mm and 150mm round front but that's not in the cards right now so I'm thinking if the image isn't that different, color quality (This I doubt) and otherwise when attached to the Lomos, why not give it a shot. My only reason for hope is that back in 1955, these attachements went for $65 for the 8mm and $125 for the 16mm which SEEMS expensive for 1955. Anyway I didn't pay that for it and it wouldn't have mattered if I did, according to the 1955 ad, it will save me 50% in film stock.......BECAUSE.......I DON'T have to pan as much!!!!:
Any info would be helpful.
