An adapter for Canon 35mm still lenses

Hi all,

I have recently got the SONY HVR Z7 hoping to use it for wildlife. I own a few nice CANON still 35mm lenses (70-200 f-2.8 IS, 300 f-2.8 IS, 400 f-5.6, 500 f-4 IS) that I would love to use on the Z7. I have heard that the lens mount of the Z7 and the JVC HD are identical.
If this is true - is there an adaptor available?

Thanks!

Ofer Levy

I've been told that it's impossible to mount Canon FD lenses on an HD110. I've not found a Canon FD to JVC HD adapter.

Canon FD flange to focal plane is 42mm, ( If my addled memory serves me correctly. ) Nikon F flange to focal plane is 46.5mm. The in-air flange to focal plane for the standard Fujinon I do not know but it seems to be in the ballpark of about 37mm when you hold it up to a groundglass.

My initial impression is that it may not be impossible, maybe just not commonly done.

Look up Les Bosher in a search and you may find something either exists, can be made to exist as a custom job or is impossible.
