Does this mount convert PL lenses to use on bayonet mount cameras or bayonet lenses for pl mount cameras?

I need one for the SR I just bought of Mr. Carroll!

Auction ends soon!

Help me out.

Thanks,
Chris

Thanks Daniel.

I've done a search and I can't seem to find an adaptor for bayonet mount cameras to take PL mount lenses. Is this possible? I'm hoping it is.

Best,
Chris

Sorry Chris, there's no chance. But getting an SRI converted to PL is an operation that's done relativly easy. And it's a good chance to get her converted to Super16 as well.

Chris,

You can't convert PL lenses to ARRI bayonet. Which lenses were you hoping to use with the camera? The best lenses that folks usually buy for Arriflex 16SR and SRII cameras that have not been converted to Super 16 are the Zeiss Super Speed I primes. They are standard in ARRI bayonet mount. You will see many sets with PL mounts on them, but usually these are PL mount adapters, and they can be removed, leaving the ARRI bayonet mount, which will work with your new camera.
