16x9 adapter

I love having the wide angle !
But this adapter has issues with both loosing focus around the edges AND color abberation (red & blue borders around contrasting edges)
That being said, if you control the presets and are careful, it is quite wonderful to use. I actually like the extra curve of the 16x9 lens.

I am uploading some clips now:

-The clips that say "16x9_" are the ones with the adapter
- The clips that say "Letus35XL_" are tests with Quyen Le's new 35mm/relay lens adapter
- The Clips that say "wv70mm_" are new tests with Winston Vargas' 70mm adapter he is in the process of perfecting...

I'll be posting more as the days roll by,

Remember that any lens is going to look bad stopped down further than f/5.6 on an H1 as 5.6 is at the diffraction limit.

It's very encouraging hearing that the lens can be fixed. I guess I'll try to get that done.
