    Wow! This would probably negate the Wooden Camera's modification effort.

    There are already plenty of PL-EF adapters. Iíve had mine for a year so I can attach my SLR Magic APO Cine Hyperprimes to any of my EF-mount cameras. Iíve been using it with a Metabones EF-E adapter on a Sony A7s Mark II this week on a short film and the Metabones shifts on the E mount whenever I rack focus. That shift is precisely why you donít want an adapter unless it positive-locks...which the standard native EF mount does not on EVA1. If a third party were to make one, thatíd be cool. Regardless, if you want to use PL mount lenses on EVA1, as I do, you will want to seriously consider the PL mod kit.

    That's the US policy I can tell you about because that's the part of the company I'm connected to. But we communicate with each other and try to match out as best we can.

    That adapter works with maybe a dozen PL lenses, and doesn't work with 100s more. Most PL lenses extend into the camera cavity, and they will physically hit the EF mount's electrical pin block. So that won't work. This adapter is really only useful for the smallest handful of lenses, while the Wooden Camera modification will work with almost all of them.

    From Wooden Camera:

    “While the vast majority of lenses are compatible, due to the ND filter turret on the EVA1, lenses with a rear protrusion longer than 33.5mm, measured from the PL flange, are not compatible.”

    There are very few PL lenses that protrude that far. Off the top of my head I can think of a couple of Angenieux zooms that might have a problem and possibly some hyper-wide fisheye, like a converted Nikon 8mm. Not sure with any of those but real it is few and far between.

    The 8mm nikkor is a retrofocal SLR design. It clears the mirror. The Zeiss standard primes are pretty deep....

    I seem to remember one of the Red Pro Primes jutted out pretty far and caused a problem mounted on anything but a Red One. Never used it so I couldn’t say. But, like WC says: the “vast majority” of PL lenses should work.
