    Yes Herb you should be able to do that, no problem. I have a nicely made no brand adapter that works nicely. Also any of the major brand one should work, like Nippon or Novaflex. You want one that fits tight, and the NikF version (not the more expensive NikG version.
    Sent you a PM ref the Oly 14-35 f/2.0 Zoom also in reply to your question.
    Cheers

    Tokina 28-70mm 2.6/2.8 + stepdown ring 77 to 62 + Slr Magic Anamorphot 50 1.33 adapter + Slr Magic Rangefinder ( takes control over zooming lens ) = LOVE

    I have anamorphic range on my Sony F3 from 38mm al the way to 70mm. This is just gorgeous combination. I consider i have 3 anamorphic lenses in one. With ebay hunting i had this under 1200 euros spent for tokina, anamorphic adapter and rangefinder adapter.

    @Frank - thanks for the topic. Would never think about this if it wasn't your thread here....

    I picked up mine, a version II, for $153 off eBay. They tend to go between ~$150-250 from what I've seen, but it depends on the condition too.

    Awesome and I assume the Nikon's are the most sort after because of the manual iris ring?

    Yeah - manual iris, plus you can adapt Nikon to almost any camera.

    Yeah, that's true, but the Pentax version also has a manual iris. The 2.6-2.8 version I have has the PX mount that can be easily adapted to EF.

    I never realised that. Cool.

    Curious to check it out now, thanks.

    I’m having a tough time figuring out if any of the canon versions on eBay are the correct version or not. Most of them say 2.8 on the lens and not 2.6-2.8, which makes it hard to identify. I believe some that say 2.8 on the lens could be the correct version, but I’m not sure how to find that out. If any one can help me out, I would really appreciate it.

    I have the Nikon version. However, thee AF ring gets stuck from time to time (It's a push mechanism, there's a ring around the barrel you pull it towards you to switch to MF and push it back up to switch to AF). I have no idea what causes this, as the ring is able to turn left and right but pulling it down becomes impossible, even with a sheer amount of force. I have to play with it for a while to get it back to manual focus. Anybody else have this problem?
