Absolutely. When I bought my 28 M-Rokkor ( 1012516, but who cares,
no one collects Minolta numbers) from Kenny Hansen, when he was on 21st &
Bway years ago, he suggested I go upstairs to Nippon Camera Repair and have
it thus modified to work with my M4-P (and now M6 as well). They added
about a mm to the appropriate bayonet edge to make it bring up 28mm
framelines in my M cameras.

Anyone have a guess at replacement value? My insurance agent really wants
me to give him a number, and I haven't seen it advertized recently. Thanks
if you can!
