Can the Nikkor 75mm 2.8 for bronica sq be converted to Pentax 67 mount

Title says it all really... Id love to have the Pentax 75 2.8 AL but it's pretty expensive so I'm looking for an alternative.

I'm fairly certain the answer is no. One of the major features of the original Bronica 6x6 cameras was that the mirror dropped down instead of flipping up. This allowed for lens designs that protruded further into the mirror box.
The Nikkor-P 75/2.8 is nearly the same design as the Schneider Xenotar used in the Rolleiflex cameras which don't have a mirror behind the taking lens. The rear element of the Nikkor-P protrudes too far for use on the Pentax 67.

FWIW, the Nikkor-P 75/2.5 is a superb lens, and it's worth getting a Bronica S2 or S2A just for that lens IMO

Never come to this forum looking for help curbing your CBA

There is a Pentax currently on eBay at $192 with 8 days left on bidding. It will be interesting to see if it sells for as much as the recent sold listings...
