Hello,

are there any adapters to use a Canon Fd lens with any 35mm filmcameras like BNCR or Pl mount ?

Is it possible to use such a FD lens with BNCR or PL ?

I think there's a big problem with the short flange distance of only 42 of the canon fd lenses . . .

I'm pretty sure it's impossible.
For PL, a straight adapter is unlikely as it would not allow infinity focus.
For BNCR, it might just work depending on whether reflex system clearances are needed, but likely an adapter would be a custom job.

Cheers,
Jean-Louis
