PL to EOS adapter & ZE lenses

PostSat Aug 25, 2012 2:15 pm

Hello,

I was wondering if the KCWtechnica PL to EOS adapter would work for the BMC? LINK

I have the 28mm Zeiss ZE which does have 'lens breathing' but it can be dealt with, so is it worth having a adapter, like the one above, for the more expensive Ziess Lenses? And would it even work with the flange distance?

Sorry if this has been asked before, just curious about the options,

cheers!

We have not tested it. If it does I'm not sure how well it would work or what the effect on the lens dynamics.

I own this, will be testing it with a cooke 18-100. Mostly works on small flange type lenses AKA Cooke and Angenieux
