can anyone help me with this situation i have

i recently purchased one of sony's new PMW-F3's and im looking at fitting a canon broadcast/cinema lense i have to it. i know that the F3 comes with a PL mounting system and as i understand the canon lense i have has a B4 2/3" mounting system. Is there any adapters on the markent that go from a B4 to PL? or how should i go about getting this lense on the camera.

also im looking at getting a shoulder mount complete system for the f3, what would be some sugestions, ive come across three, genus, vocas and zacuto's indie.

any help ould be greatly apreciated.

thanks

If the $5,500. doesn't stop you the two stops of light loss was the deal breaker for me.
Not to mention I doubt you have a powered zoom control. (Don't know that for sure).
If you have a T1.7 lens...that would be a T3.7 not that bad with a camera that has an native ISO of 800.
But the ENG lenses are still lighter than a Optimo at half the price, and half as good.

NAB will have a large selection of HH rigs for the F3. If you can wait.
