I've seen some LF lenses adapted to the 5D before and it made me wonder what other cool lenses have been adapted to Canikon?

I some times use a Sinar as an adapter.







This 180/4.5 Ysaron is on a home made Sinar lens board (a sheet of aluminium with a hole in it).

I do a lot of experiments with very different lenses.
I use a lot of normal photographic lenses with adapted or converted mounts, like Canon FD up to 800/5.6 or some Minolta SR mount lenses, even a Minolta/Sony 20mm/2.8 AF lens I have adapted to my Canon DSLR.
But much more strange are endoscopes, medium or largeformat lenses (I made such a SLR camera board ~10 years ago for my Plaubel Peco Junior), repro, microscope, copying lenses..
One of the strangest looking lenses could be those relais lens setups:

Or this 60cm long setup with an Angenieux Zoom 7.5 - 35 mm / 1.8 from an old film camera and a Kiron 105 macro as relais lens.


A Schneider 6.5mm/1.8 CCTV lens and a reversed Kiron 28/2.0 as relais lens

Image quality of booth relais setup is bad. But for the later I found a better relais lens.
