G9 Lens

G9 Lens-002

I show you a yet another homemade lens : G9 Lens (with Nikon mount).   As a matter of fact, this lens appeared here before, in the other guise.

G9 (2)-1-A09A6026-001

Similar to G10 lens, G9 lens was a front element of the Canon’s G-series compact camera.  Before, the lens was made Nikon mount like an individual Macro lens to use on a bellows.  With an arrival of Nikon D850, I did a remake of the lens, while giving a focusing barrel.  Hopelessly fuzzy image need to work with the best camera which got the finest resolution.  😀

For G9 Lens-A09A7688

From the previous Gaudy Lens’ experience, I took a lens barrel from Olympus film camera. (Photo above) And re-mounted the lens, deep inside of the barrel.  On the Nikon mount, this homemade lens can give a focus from infinity to 1/3 close-up.  The lens optical character was almost the same to G10 lens though, G9 has 50mm focal length, instead of 60mm on G10′. (yet makes very little difference)

Sky and Rose

This was the test shot.  The softness on a dry rose wasn’t too bad.  (It’s surprise to see even such fuzzy lens can show quite a small pattern of the tree.)

Only a trouble from D850 was the size of the each photo, 20Mb causing a bit of havoc. (Still, on this blog = they are cut down to only 200Kb or so —– Why use D850 ? ? ?)   

Further shot on G9 + D850 would come soon.
