Hello,

Does anyone know if the Cooke 20-100mm zoom can be fitted with an Arri B-Mount or Standard Mount instead of a PL Mount?

Furthermore, do you guys know if any PL Mount lens can have the mount swapped out for a B-Mount? Or does it depend on the lens?

Thanks very much,

Hi Jon,

A universal to Arri Bayo is available second hand from:

The lens needs to be supported for sure!

Stephen,

So this would be an adapter that would fit a PL mount onto a Bayonet port? I didn't know those existed.

Or is this just a mount that can be swapped out for the PL mount that is on the camera?

I apologize for my ignorance.

Thanks for all your time,

Jon,

The Cooke lens has a universal mount screw fitting to which you attach a PL / BNCR / Panavision / Aaton /Arri mount etc.

I bought the Universal to BNCR form the link I posted, I can now use my Cooke Zooms with PL & BNCR mounted cameras.
