P+S Technik

Rehousing for Canon K35 18mm, PL-Mount

P+S developped a completely new lens rehousing for the Canon K35 lens series with floating elements. These rare and attractive lenses cover Full Frame (36x24, see also Image Circle Charts).
Equipped with a completely new cam drive mechanism to handle the floating elements these classic lenses are ready for modern lens motors and with our modern rehousing it offers a 270° focus throw. The aperture mechanism has been improved too.

We have achieved a great price-performance-ratio by using a modular system. Canon K-35, Canon FD and Leica-R lenses are now mounted into our SL-housing with a front diameter of 110mm. With the SL-housings P+S Technik offers its first rehousing for lenses with floating elements.

Canon manufactured the K35 lenses in the 1970's and early 80's. The lens speed varies dependent on serial number.

Glass Service

We recommend Glass Service (like cleaning, polishing,...) before rehousing your lenses. This Glass Service is not included and will be charged extra.
