Is it possible to modify a Nikon lens into PL?
I would like to modify a Nikon 85mm T1.4 and a 135mm T2 to fit a Cameflex wich will be converted to PL.

Do you know someone who do this kind of job?

Modified Nikon or Canon Telephoto and Ultra-Wide lenses (200mm,300, 8mm...) are often used in rental house...why can't we do the same with other focal lengh.

Hi,

At great expense yes as the lens has to be rebuilt. The FFL of the Nikon is much less than 52mm. For Macro only you can buy an adapter that will work.
