Hello all, I have searched on internet about it for some hours. I only could find a seller C7adapter from Poland making adapters himself but not cheap at all, about 290USD. Is there any alternative way to adapt? While I don’t want to make “operation” on the original lens. Thank You Dog

Have you checked out RafCamera?

If I read this correctly there are OCT-18 lenses with various mount to film distances, so adapting it to a helicoid may be the best solution.

I have a couple of Oct-18 to M43 adapters, so you could probably go Oct-18 to M43 + M43 to E-Mount. Raf camera do a new updated one with the focussing pin. I have the C7 adapter and it's very good.

Oh, I didn't know about that. Thank you for this cheaper method Smile even though I will not be able to use the original "mouse ears" for the focusing.

Thank you for your advice too. How is the C7 adapter? Can I use the orginal "mouse ears" on the cine lens for the rotate focusing?

Both the C7 and updated Raf camera one allow you to focus with the focusing ring/rabbit ears, preventing the lens from unscrewing from itself and instead functioning how it should do on a Konvas/Kino

The other option is an Oct-18 to PL adapter from Rafcamera then a PL to E-mount. That way you'll have a more standard PL mount https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OCT-18-lens-to-Arri-PL-camera-mount-adapter/142655889219?hash=item2136f41f43:g:SXIAAOSwe6ZaW3U2
