Upgrading a Zeiss 10-100 T2 Lens to Cover Super 16


Recommended Posts

I have two Zeiss 10-100 T2 lenses w/ B-Mounts that I am looking to convert to cover S16 and to a PL mount. I've read here that Optex & Abakus used to offer this service and/or kit, but it doesn't seem like either are offered anymore. Is anyone familiar with a way to have this done now?

I think Charles Pickel over at Serious Gear can do it but I haven’t personally spoken to him about it so not 100 percent on that.

Thanks! I reached out and Charles is in the process of offering this service again.

It's listed on the Abakus web site, trying contacting them to check on availability.

While Abakus still has it listed on their website, they no longer offer the kit unfortunately.

It isn't a good idea anyway. You don't want an external adaptor, you want it to be integrated.

If you looked at the link you’d see Abacus supplied the same thing Optex did, a hard conversion with replacement aperture and zoom scales.

Ah yes, I didn't see that on first glance, I see it now! thanks.
