Hi,

I've talked with Les Bosher about this.

he can convert a BL4 hard front to Nikon,  you would need to send the camera to him.

The best solution he suggested was to send the camera to him, he would convert the hard front to a new mount that would accept the Nikon mount but still be able to easily ( in the field) convert back to PL mount.

This would involve making a new stainless steel ring ,,,one for the nikon mount and one for the PL....which would drop into the newly engineered original front mount. Effectively making a new universal mount. Maybe other lenses could be used this way? (not sure)

I've never seen one for sale.

As long as the mount on the camera matches the rokinon mount and the coverage is the same as 35mm...aps-c should cover S35?

Why would you want to use a Rokinon glass or any stills glass on a BL4? They may be nice, but how are you planning on pulling focus accurately on any of those lenses?
