Is there an adaptor out there to put a lens bearing a Nikon F mount onto PL mount cameras.

I know and am not bothered in this application about the issues with flange depths and I am also aware of IMS mounts.

Thanks

Yes if you don't mind macro only or a x 1.4 teleconverter.

Is this one of the longer tube types?

Essentially I want to use the lensbaby control freak (nikon f) on PL cameras. You need to push the lens in by a good 6mm before you pass through infinity so the way I see it there is plenty of room for an adaptor plate.

So Stephen, where have you seen any for sale?

Hi Thomas,

On Ebay, just a thin mount infinity is not normally possible but sounds like it will work with the lensbaby.
