    Adapting Mamiya lenses to Nikon?

    Hey folks,

    I am wondering if anyone makes a lens adapter for mounting Mamiya lenses onto Nikon 35mm bodies? Is it even possible due to focal plane distances? I am just curious... because a friend of mine had a 45mm tilt/shift lens which had a Mamiya mount on it, but he had it remounted for Nikon -- and now uses it with his F6.

    Thanks,


    David

    think I might order one next month... I have some nice lenses for my mamiya.. it would be cool to use them on my Nikon bodies too.

    I have one to adapt to my F3hp, it works just fine, although I don't use it. If you had the cameras and then the adapter make sense for increasing the range of lenses.

    I have the camera's.. just missing an adapter at this point. I have 3 manual Mamiya lenses --- the 80mm f/2.8, the 120mm macro f/4, and the 210mm f/4.

    Its a nice little collection... and would increase the number of lenses I could use with either my Nikon F50 or D2h.
