Adressed to the cinematography people. Anyone can answer me if those lenses can be adapted to a PL mount?

LOMO PO61-5 f=2.5 / 28mm
LOMO OKC1-35-1 f=2.0 / 35mm
PO3-3M f=2.0 / 50mm
PO2-2M f=2.0 / 75mm
Jupiter-11 f=4.0 / 135mm

Thanks in advance!

PS

First, this was posted before in other sub-forum, however I could find there was a better place in order to post it. Thanks again for your time.

Yes, This lenses possible use with cameras with Arri PL lens mount.
You will need set specail lens adapter on rear side of lenses.

Thanks. However, there are focusing limitations. Without those problems, is there any chance?

BTW, I was @your rafcamera.com very known, I'd like to know if it is easy to find russian old lenses and how much is the average offer?

Lenses in OCT-18 mount (like yours) are quite cheap - about $35 per lens.

At your link, it refers this is a prototype. If not (will it be easy to find?), aren't there any focusing limitations or other sort of problems?

Thanks in advance!

It clearly states that you lose infinity focus. I do not like the sound of that for any serious production work.

We still have no time to work on new version of this adapter, unfortuantely.
And it seems that infinity focus problem is due to camera misadjustment, not due to adapter fault.
But I still can't test it with Arri. Sorry.
