epoxy cementing worked with tons of careful measurements.

i took the lens with me with my xe1 on a camping trip recently and had some fun shooting it at all apertures.
to make it more usable, i coloured in the mounting point, and also moved the focusing tab to the aperture ring so it doubles both as a focusing aid and also a way to easily change the aperture. (the whole front unit rotates when focusing so polarizers and other filters will not work well.) also, in a stroke of inspiration, i used the metal timer tab to act as a infinity stop because it rotated past the DOF markings. cutting away at the DOF marking ring to create a stop was fairly easy (again making careful measurements)
the lens matches well with the hawk's adapter: (and the almost pancake dimensions of the lens. the lens looks like it definitely belongs on the xe1.)
