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:
http://dashboard.filefront.com/bentoon/

-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,
cheers,
J

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.
