    Hi there. Want to share my experience with users who interested in fast projection lenses.

    Lens itself
    Adapter compatible with all 62.5mm projection (cine) lenses such as Visionar, 35KP and Lomo lenses.

    Made this using:
    nex-m42 adapter ($10)
    m65 chinese helicoid 17-31mm ($60)
    aluminum bar and lathe works to make custom 62.5mm adapter ($20)

    To fasten lens I use few headless m6 bolts and screwdriver.

    Adapter on A7 with Philips SK "S" 100mm f1.5 lens

    Wow, that sounds like it was quite the project to mount that lens, Senya. Nice result! And I don't think I've ever seen wilder bokeh. :D

    Oh, and welcome to the asylum!

    Brilliant job on creating that lens. The results have a dreaminess effect to them. But center sharp. Portraits are very nice!

    I'm looking into a similar project, but at the other end. A long lens from a copier lens for astro-photography. There are cheap telescopes made from them with such construction.

    Great inventiveness, nice results.

    The downside/positive is that the lens is always in F1.5.

    There are adapters with helicoid and aperture too.
