x to 645

ok guys be nice to me. are there any t-mounts that adapt screw lens to the 645, is it even possible to mount 35mm lenses to medium format in manual mode? just wondering.

to my knowledge, no. the thing about 35mm lenses is:
1. the smaller image circle means you will have inadequate coverage of your film/sensor, resulting in a big black border around all your photos.
2. most 35mm cameras have much smaller mirror boxes than the 645 format or no mirror box at all, which would result in a much smaller flange distance. what this means is that you also lose out in infinity focus.

No. Unless you are a Leitz fetishist with deep pockets (Visoflex) 35mm format lenses cannot be adapted to medium format.

If you want to shoot with adapted lenses on a 645 look at Pentax 6x7 lenses or other lenses designed with a longer flange-focal distance and/or designed to cover a larger format.
