Just wondering if anyone's used them, or knows the look they'd give versus the other lenses they have there... I've used all of them, from Abel :) from the Cooke S4s to the Zeiss Super Speeds, the Optar Illuminas, etc and I'm shooting a S16 film in August that I'm looking for a certain look that I'm not sure I've found in those lenses, and frankly, I'm just curious - having recently purchases a Rangefinder to shoot stills on.

So I was just wondering if anyone had used them or knows what's up!

Thanks! :)

Very cool. I believe I'll take advantage of that.

Would I contact Maia or someone in the Tech Dept?

It's not possible (at least not easily as you'd need some kind of relay system) to use a PL mount lens on a Nikon F bayonet. The FFD on the PL is 52 on the Nikon it's 46,5mm. Much easier to try and find a Nikon 300/2 with F mount.

Cheers. Dave

Yes, am looking but most of them appear to have been taken by rental houses or studios and converted to PL.
