Are you wanting to use a box lens or do you just need the long focal length?

If you're using a box lens, the 1/3" to 2/3" converter should work just fine, realizing that the lens will now have a magnification factor of somewhere in the neighbourhood of 1.5x (which would help your telephoto but hinder your "wide" angle).

If you just need long telephoto, you may want to look at the 35mm dSLR lens adaptors that allow mounting of 35mm (non ciné) still camera lenses. Mike Tapa (MTF Services) makes them for Nikon lenses.

Mike also makes a very good 2/3" to 1/3" adapter, which I actually like better than Fujinon's ACM-17.
