Hot Rod 7D-PL lens modification

Hot Rod Cameras is a company that does camera modifications; notably modifying cameras to accept PL mount lenses. Abel Cine Tech, a professional film and video sales, service and rental store is a re-seller of the Canon 7D-PL Mod and they now have a video blog post with Illya Friedman, president of Hot Rod Cameras and Andy Shipsides of Abel showing the mount and talking about what's involved with the modification.

They are accepting pre-orders and first deliveries are expected in the second week of April. You can either get the modification performed on your camera, or buy a converted camera.

There's also a Canon 7D-PL FAQ.

Note that:
...the 7D-PL Mod performed by Hot Rod Cameras will void Canon's factory warranty. However, there is a five day new camera initial failure policy. Customers have 5 days after their invoice date to notify us of an initial failure.
