Hey guys and girls..

Thinking about toying around a bit with some older glass.. Most of it is NOT in PL mount (which is my "target mount".. S16). What's the best way to to approach a conversion? For those who have done this: do you do the adapters etc from scratch (CNC?) or do you use something as a basis?

As an example I got an interesting "ilex cinemat F3.5/25,4mm" fix focus lens here I'd like to try to convert it to PL mount. Currently it's in a CS mount (flange distance 12,5 mm vs the 52 mm for PL!) - sounds crazy right? But it's possible: it still clears the mirror shutter and the lens is so small in diameter that it is easily inserted deep into the PL mount.

Greetings,
Marc
