LENS PORN: PO-109 50mm f/1.2 Russian Projector Lens for Photography

Projector lenses are becoming the new rave nowadays because they are very very dirt cheap and you get wide apertures like f/1.2. Adapting projector lenses for photography will yield dreamy swirly bokeh like those in the Helios lenses, they call 'Petzval Effect'. 

The lens is basically just a lens. It does not have a 'focusing helicoid' and an aperture mechanism to stop down. Focusing helicoid are very cheap and easy to get.

However, mind the flange distance! At first, my lens could only focus in macro on my Nikon D5200. After playing with the elements a bit, I figured the best would be to remove the rear element so I can focus to infinity. I already had some sample by freelensing. Freelensing produces light leaks and some tilt/shift effect.

Due to the flange distance, this is best adapted for micro 4/3 and mirrorless (Sony, Fuji, Panasonic, Olympus, etc.)

In the end, I had so many other things to do in life so I decided to sell it in its current unmodified form. I guess this lens is not for me!
