the question is, does anyone know what kind of lens p+s is using as relay lens? or at least what focal lenghth. that would be very interesting.

Their relay is not an OEM lens. It's assembled by them. The focal length is unknown but would be a moot point anyways since it's only made to focus within a certain distance.

Physically it would not work without some modification or additional connecting pieces between the mini35 relay lens and 35mm adapter - but theoretically it could work.

To Micheal's point the M2, SPGpro, Brevis, etc.. would have be located at some distance away from the HD100 at a focal point unknown.

It should also be noted that at this focal point the frame size may not be a full 35mm frame size (36x24) since it's possible some frame size reduction occurs before the mini35 relay lens, and the final reduction for the 1/3" CCD afterwards.

In this thread I discuss the prospect of removing the stock lens from a HVX200 and designing my own relay lens system to work with a 35mm adapter. www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=82245

You may find this of some interest.
