Has anyone played around with one of these lenses?
I picked up one on ebay cheap, just to see what it might be able to do.
After just a brief holding of the lens in front of the Sony HW10, it needs a long throw projector. I have read a 1,5 throw is a minimum. It looks like it will work with the HW10 which is a 1.6.
Image quality thru the lens looks very good. The lens does need to be taken apart and the glass prisms cleans, but otherwise it's in excellent shape for maybe a 40+ year old lens.
The body has plenty of machined bolt holes that would help mate the lens to some type of adjustable frame.
I'd love to hear any DIY projects AVS folks have done with this lens.
I might note, when I was researching the lens, they seemed to come in atleast two forms. This is the one that seems newer and is more compact.
