Lens mount conversions
Posted 21 March 2006 - 10:16 PM
I'm toying with the idea of having my K3's lens mount changed, most likely to a Nikon mount. (I am aware of the limitations of using a Nikon mount for cine use, but I am favouring it due to the lack of cine lenses available to rent where I am based.)
It'll be some time before I actually do it, but I'm just wondering which places do lens mount changes, and have a good reputation? I know Reel Trading used to specialise in Nikon conversions for K3's, but I haven't had any luck contacting them.
I am based in Australia, but would be willing to send overseas.

I should have thought of Aranda, having spoken to Bruce about something else a few months ago.
I have a few M42 lenses already- hence why I am not in a real hurry to do the conversion (in addition to the fact that I don't want to spend too much on my K3, given its inherent limitations). But a Nikon would provide more (and better) options for me. They're certainly easier to rent locally. I also dislike swapping screw-mount lenses on the K3.

You don't have to have a lens mount conversion, you could just buy an adapter. I've seen Nikon to m42 adapters as well as many others for sell.
---They're for using M-42s on a Nikon, not the other way around.
