Anyone know of any companies re-housing SMC-A or M lenses in 'Cine' formats?

Wondering if there's any places that can do mods to reduce the focus breathing.

Don't know of any, but there's a simple "declick" trick to allow for smoother aperture adjustments.

Anyone can do the De-Click, takes all of 5 minutes.

What I want, is matched housings that keep the focus rig in the same place and fit the same front end for the Matte Box.

I'll be able to 3D print focus gear rings pretty soon, but that's still not the same as having the glass in a housing that doesn't change length during focusing, has matched focus rings, and reduces the breathing during focus pulls.
