So Iíll ask again: how does one go about ordering an NKIR conversion? (Iím in Australia.)


Hi Jonathan,

Most of us have contacted them through Facebook. When I was looking to have my Sony A7rII modified, I contacted them but ultimately went with Kolari Vision. Their Facebook pages are:

https://www.facebook.com/NKIRStudio/

https://www.facebook.com/nk.chang.7

https://www.facebook.com/groups/260689301117729/

Ultimately, my camera was modified by Kolari Vision just before the Pandemic hit in February of last year. For me I was very very fortunate because Kolari Vision was not very busy and I had my camera back from Kolari Vision with their UT sensor modification in less than about a week being shipped from eastern Pennsylvania to New Jersey- only in my case about 70 miles or so away. I was shocked with the turnaround. Had my camera been sent to I believe Taiwan who knows how long the camera modification would have taken.

I could be mistaken, but when Vivek (realvivek) and I discussed the options via PM, I think that he thought that the Kolari Vision modification would be tougher and less likely to have damage than the NKIR.

But for me at the time of my modification, my most WA M-mount lenses consisted of the Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Distagon ZM, Leica 24mm f3.8 ASPH, my Leica M WATE, Minolta CLE 28mm f2.8 M-Rokkor, and Minolta CLE 40mm f2 M-Rokkor. Now I have added the new Voigtlander 28mm f2 Ultron II Asph VM, and Fred's Voigtlander 12mm f5.6 Heliar III VM lenses.

I will be divesting myself of the Minolta 28mm f2.8 when the temperatures become cooler to avoid the possibility of the dreaded White Spots forming on the lens.
