Duclos Lenses has developed a conversion process for the Canon Cinema Eos CN-E Primes that provides a high quality, stainless steel PL mount that allows the primes including the 14mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, and 135mm to be used with any PL mount camera.

This is the reason for the recently launched Duclos Marketplace - a destination to browse and list used lenses looking for a new home. A glorified classified section, if you will, the Duclos Marketplace allows owners to l...
