    Does anyone know if Tamron USA can still convert framelines in the RF645 from 135 to 100?

    And if so, how much?

    Thanks!

    I had my body converted way back when. In GB, Robert White was doing the service. FWIW, the way to go is the 100mm with the correct frame line. Also, the 100mm is a great optic with smooth OOF affects. The RF645 is just a stunning general purpose camera system.

    I had one done not too long ago. They were very prompt and it was less expensive than I had expected. They also corrected a slight vertical alignment issue at the same time for no added charge.

    I called them today and they still offer this service. Good to know. I also have a slight vertical alignment issue that I will ask them to fix while it's being serviced. Thanks!
