I'm just curious since I happened to come across a rather cheap BL2 with PL mount. My question is this: are these mounts like more modern PL mounts changeable between S-35 centering and N-35 centering? If not, CAN the BL2 be modified to shoot S-35 - are there gates and groundglasses readily available? Thank you.

Adam,

It's dependant on who did the conversion. P+S Technik no longer offers the conversion, the cameras are too noisy leading to unhappy customers!

Are you sure that P+S doesn't do the conversion? I got a quote about 3-4 weeks ago from them to converrt my BL2 to a PL mount.
