View Full Version : How about this as a nice set of primes for the G1?
I think I saw somewhere on the net, maybe photo.net, I can't remember, that someone had mounted an Arriflex 9mm f1.9 lens. "Mmmm, nice and wide and fast," I thought. Then I came across this auction. Wouldn't be a bad set of primes to play with, I suppose...

Is there an Arriflex adaptor?
Micro 4/3 looks more and more interesting. I can see old cine cameras being cannibalised by the thousand.
There are C adapters available for the G1. I would be careful with certain C lenses, especially these. The C mount sits further into the lens cavity of the G1. If certain C lenses have protruding rear elements, such as these, they will come in contact with the chip and interfere with the shutter.
Here is the Arri ST adapter, the same seller also has a c-mount adapter for micro 4/3.
Leica needs to get on the stick and start making some lenses for this format. Then they need to bring out their own m4/3rds body. Not necessarily in that order.

Careful though that there are 3 different types of Arri mounts and the adapter being talked about is for the old ST (Standard) mount only. You might need more adapters from ST to BM (bayonet mount) and they are not cheap (made by ARRI)
