Hi there,

 

for some time now i have the Kern Paillard Vario-Switar 12.5-100 f2 MC (for Stalex WS-2) lying around and finally are looking into adapting it to my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The C-Mount would need to be modified to fit CMount->MFT Adapters, so that would one option.

 

The other (and preferred one, hence my question here): I found out that apparently Stalex WS-2 Cameras featured a M42 Mount. I checked with my lens and yes, there is a M42 thread. So i bought a cheap M42 -> MFT Adapter and thought that maybe would do the job, but the focal flange distance is off by so much, that even a potentially bad quality adapter cannot be the culprit anymore.

So, my question: Did the Stalex m42 mount just use m42 but with a different focal flange distance (and hence has little in common with other m42 lenses)? I can find very little information on Stalex Cameras, Lenses, or even a Manual for the Vario Switar Version (non POE) ...

 

Thanks,

Till
