I have a silly question: In some cases it could be more reasonable to modify the camera instead of the lens. The "translating" chip for this purpose should be the same as in the lenses. Is it possible to create a conversion kit for Canon cameras to N-mount?

Well... we will not develop or make replacement parts for modifying camera bodies. Let me explain the rationale behind this,

1, the N-mount line-up has a limited selection and most likely you will have to supplement your system with Canon EF lenses anyway.

2, Zeiss lenses are renowned for, among other things, their colour reproduction. Canon has, over the years, steadily improved the colour reproduction of their digital bodies, but they are not stopping at the EOS 5D, as good as it may be. I am sure in the future they will come up with an even better camera body which more fully captures the colour from a Zeiss lens.

3, we expect modified N-mount lenses to command high prices on the used market due to the large number of Canon users interested in using Zeiss optics. However, we expect a modified N-mount camera body to rapidly lose its resale value due to obsolescence. From a financial standpoint, the former makes much more sense.

Thanks. It was only an idea, because it would be possible to use unchanged lenses, while the body loses resale value in every case. But I understand the reasons for this decision.
