Canon announced on December 19th that the Cine-Servo 17-120mm (Part #s: 9785B001, and 9785B002) are now eligible for the Lens Mount Exchange Progam – allowing users to convert from EF to PL mount or vice-versa.
From the announcement:
“Canon USA’s Cinema Lens Factory Service Centers can perform the modification on eligible lenses. The cost of the mount conversion kit is $800 for the Cine-Servo 17–120mm. Additionally, a $400 labor charge and applicable return shipping fees will also apply for each lens modified. The parts comprising the original mount will be returned to the client and can be reused as necessary.”
Also of note: the modification process does not affect the manufacturer’s one-year limited warranty. Contact Texas Media Systems about initiating a change!
