    For the lens mount, just use a 5mm extention ring or adapter.. no need to canibalize a camera.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    In my case, a parts camera was much cheaper than a 5mm extension ring! As a bonus, it already comes with mounting holes in a flange :-)

    Utilizing the full coverage of 35mm lenses

    I never tested it but I'm pretty sure my 35mm f/2.8 PC Nikkor has a larger image circle than my 35mm f/2 Nikkor O. If you like to use more of the image circle, why not make round prints?

    All of the PC lenses will have more coverage im sure, but the price is prohibitive.

    Very cool examples. The lenses definitely get wooly on the edges, but still interesting. I hadn't considered a recessed lens board to overcome the focal-flange-distnace.... DUH!
