Pentacon Six to Pentax 67


I've been looking for someone to adapt a P6 Sonnar 180 to the Pentax 67 !

Does anyone know of someone that can get the job done ? I've seen some good adaptations, but I don't want to do it myself !

I would appreciate any help ! Thanks !

I read the P6 register is 74.1 mm, too short to put those lenses on a P67 which is 84.95mm
The P6 lenses can be adapted to Pentax 645 which has register of 70.87mm

Pentacon Six mount - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Adaptors are also available. They allow the use of P6 lenses on Mamiya 645, Pentax 645 and Contax 645 medium format cameras, Canon EF, Canon FD, Nikon F, Minolta AF, Minolta MD, Contax/Yashica, Pentax K, M42, and Leica R 35 mm cameras, as well as Lumix and Olympus micro 4/3 (m4/3), 4/3 system. There are also tilt and shift (but not both) adaptors for most of the 35 mm lens mounts, making use of the larger imaging circle to allow control over perspective or focus.

You have to remove some parts, and it's not reversible of course, but it can be done !

I just don't know anyone in Europe that can do it right now !

Many of the Pentax lenses are based on German designs. The 180 Sonnar is closely related to the 200mm Ernostar design used in Pentax's 200mm. Thinking you can improve on the Pentax 67 lens performance with actual Sonnar designs may be a mistake.
