As I look through ebay I see the old Soviet or German lenses and wonder; who changes the mount so the lenses work on Canon FF cameras?

I understand I can buy a brand new Trioplan. It is on my list to get.

I just wonder who provides the mount service for these other lenses.

Thanks!

****Never mind. I see now that companies make adapters for these lenses.****

I ended up with this Phil. It works great. There is another company that offers the adapter with a focus confirm chip.
