Re: Lots of issues...

Maybe some practical information about how I did my conversions may give the OP more ideas. I used Nikon N1 bodys which are quite cheap. The advantage is that you can change lenses.

For one body I replaced the filter stack in front of the sensor with a Schott B270 1,35mm thickness. You can cut the glas to the needed size with a glas cutter and cutting oil. The other N1 body I shimmed the sensor assy and brought it forward be 0,5mm.

I also converted a Sony A7 by shimming the sensor.

The results in IR are the same for me. You can see some results on my Flickr account.

I am also interested in UV photography. But so far I have not got some useful results.

I use a UG-11 and a IR blocking filter in front of a Staeble Lineogon 35 mm f/3.5 Lens which should be good for UV Photography according to these sites:
