I can't see the reason for doing so, since most PL mount film lenses won't actually cover the full 35mm stills frame. People do this mod with the Canon 7D. but this camera hasn't a full frame 35 sensor.

The Zeiss Contax lenses are extremely good and are pretty similar look wise to Zeiss cine lenses. They were modified to Aaton mount for shooting Super 16, often used in combination with the 16mm Super Speed Distagons.
