Chinon 55-300mm f/4.5 zoom

Chinon 55-300mm f/4.5 with a micro four thirds T-mount

No lens hood was used to make this video and in scene 5 the lens is facing in the direction of the sun. The Chinon 55-300mm lens was used at 300mm at f/11 for the entire video. The closest focusing distance for this lens is 10 feet. With a micro four thirds T-mount adapter, the lens weighs exactly 2.0 kilograms.

 

 

Originally the lens had an automatic diaphragm with a Pentax M42 T mount adapter. This type of T mount has a 42mm thread with a .75mm thread pitch instead of the 1mm thread pitch used on the M42 mount. Any attempts to use an M42 adapter instead of a T-mount adapter will damage the threads on the lens.
