brent_bennett Posted June 19, 2011 Share Posted June 19, 2011 <p>I do not have a digital camera yet, but if I get one I want to use my Contarex lenses. None of the models (such as NEX and Olympus) appeal to me (adapters are made for Contarex lenses for them). The question is: If I get a Canon digital SLR body, are there particular models that have mounts that are not plastic, can be removed fairly easily, etc. A Rebel XT is available to me for modifying; is that as good a choice in that regard as any of the newer ones? This will be a machining job, and obviously I will be limited to using lenses without autofocus, so I need a camera body that will accomodate manual focus and f/stop/exposure settings.<br> FYI: the lens register on my lenses is 46mm, and the Canon body register is 44mm. Plus, of course, the body must be modified to accept the unusual Contarex lens mount.<br> Thank you for your suggestions.</p> <p> </p> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
