I have already brought this up in the 16mm group, but I need guidance from us Eclair pros.

First.

What are the issues with using Nikon-lenses on the ACL?

Two.

Les Bosher does not speak to me anymore at all, so is there anyone that knows where I could get one, or that could offer to contact him to buy one for me?

Three.

I am going to use the lenses with a Panasonic AG-LA7200 adapter, to get the wider anamorphic look of the footage. I know flares will not be the same but I want the width more. I have seen it being used with Nikon lenses on the BlackMagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera, and that has the exact same sensor size as Super 16 film. But despite this, what could be some of my problems? (  - Video shot with this combination)

You could always use a Nikon to C-mount adapter.

I've actually got a Nikon to ACL adapter, so they did make them.

 

I'd keep an eye on ebay, a decent looking ACL kit just sold today for like $550.

 

If the sensor sizes are the same, you should get very similar results, so if it works on the BMPCC, I can't think of a reason it wouldn't on a super16 ACL, other than lens mounting or possibly backfocus issues.

Josh,  can you rent yours to Carl for that project for a few bucks.  They are pretty robust.

Sure, why not? Better if someone gets some use out of it. Let me know if you're interested.
