I like your idea about the helicoid adapter. Hadn't thought of that myself.

I have the same aligning problems with the Twist 60, but there it is not so obviously visible as the image circle exceeds sensor size. I have some aluminium M42 body caps, all I need to do is make a hole and stick it on somewhere (need to work out what works best with the helicoids I have). I'll put it on the to do list for this weekend.

Sounds like a plan! Would you mind to share a picture of your solution once it's there?

Every year I follow this great challenge but don't find the time to take active part in it (beside few post here and there as a "guest"...). This year I decided to try to go with the challenge all the way! Not that I have more free time, I just want to take more photos this year.

Usually I don't like the extreme wide angle (wider than 21mm is too wide for me...) but for the challenge I used them this week.

Let's start with my widest lens - Peleng 8mm F3.5 Fisheye. Not high quality lens, but at f/8 it can be not bad (if you like fisheye lenses).

8.1: The view from my door

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Peleng 8mm F3.5 Fisheye | f/8 | 1/400 sec | ISO 320

8.2: The kids were here...

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Peleng 8mm F3.5 Fisheye | f/8 | 1/40 sec | ISO 6400

8.3: Self portrait

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Peleng 8mm F3.5 Fisheye | f/8 | 1/25 sec | ISO 6400

And now with Minolta 11-18mm F4.5-5.6 at the 11mm end.

First on FF body and cropped to maximum area without black corners (I didn't use APS-C mode, but since it doesn't have black corners in APS-C mode, I believe it is wider than 11mm on APS-C):

11.1 The view from my door (again...)

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Minolta DT 11-18 mm F4.5-5.6 | 11.0 mm | f/8 | 1/250 sec | ISO 200

And now few on APS-C camera:

11.2 The salt ponds on a cloudy day

Sony NEX-7 + Minolta 11-18mm F4.5-5.6 | 11.0 mm | f/8 | 1/100 sec | ISO 200

11.3 The salt ponds on a cloudy day #2

Sony NEX-7 + Minolta 11-18mm F4.5-5.6 | 11.0 mm | f/8 | 1/100 sec | ISO 200

The Pentaflex AK16 film camera has a three-lens turret and was factory fitted with the very sought after Biotar 50/1.4 (the reason for buying the camera), Biotar 25/1.4 and Flektogon 12.5/2.8. A standard 16 mm film camera projects a 10.26 mm × 7.49 mm image, so one may wonder how this will work on a 36 by 24 sensor. Remarkably, the Biotar 50/1.4 virtually covers the FF sensor (the reason for its popularity). Big hand for our friends at Carl Zeiss in Jena, German Democratic Republic. The 25/1.5 is very useable on APSC. The Flektogon 12.5/2.8 is a different story. Its image circle is just large enough for 16 mm film and makes a perfect circle on APSC.

As next week is busy I declare the 12.5 a 12.

12.5/1: Diverse directions

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2
Lens: Carl Zeiss Jena 1Q Flektogon 2.8/12.5

Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)
ISO: 640

12.5/2: Track and stairs

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2
Lens: Carl Zeiss Jena 1Q Flektogon 2.8/12.5
Aperture: f/2.8
Exposure Time: 0.01 sec (1/100)
ISO: 100

12.5/3: Scene from the bicycle storage

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2
Lens: Carl Zeiss Jena 1Q Flektogon 2.8/12.5
Aperture: f/2.8
Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)
ISO: 160

12.5/4: A door and a half-hidden window

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2
Lens: Carl Zeiss Jena 1Q Flektogon 2.8/12.5
Aperture: f/2.8
Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)

12.5/5: The way of the blind

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2

Aperture: f/2.8
Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)
ISO: 400

12.5/6: The way of the blind

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2
Lens: Carl Zeiss Jena 1Q Flektogon 2.8/12.5
Aperture: f/2.8
Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)
ISO: 400

12.5/7: Inside a bench

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2

Aperture: f/2.8
Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)
ISO: 160
