But if you use a c-mount to e.g. a nikon-adapter you do have 35mm still
cam depth of field and the focus distance get in with a little
difference at the distance marks (but remember the focal length is a
different cause of the smaller mask) --> the . RX-lenses are not sold a
lot, and are expensive. of course the spherical aberration and
astigmatism is a point of perfection, but if you just want to use the
cam with wysiwyg it works with an adapter, too. But normal c-mount
lenses with bolex reflex is bollocks.... with normal-cmount you can only
go down 2 oder 3 stops to increase the DOP the prism gets out of the game
