I don't know about an APS-C to MFT conversion, but I did see this conversion recently.

Remember the Nikkormat EL? Back when I wanted to get my first SLR in the early 1970s I considered a Nikkormat EL, but it was too expensive for me and, besides, it was the Nikon F2 that I really wanted. Also, I wanted a mechanical camera. See this interesting post and photos about putting the NEX 5 innards inside a Nikkormat EL:


Perhaps you could help: I can't see any pictures, neither in this site nor in the link given there.

This is an awesome project - more interesting even, because I have been thinking about the possibility of a conversion like this. (Theoretically of course, I could never do it!)

I just checked the photo.net link again and there are a bunch of cool photos of the camera surgery.  It sounds like it must be some problem at your end.  I wish I could help, but you should investigate.
