Will a lens assembly or just the lens from a Sony dsc-s70 fit into a Sony dsc-s85 body? What about the Sony dsc-s75 lens assembly,will it fit? thanks.

And why would you want to do this? It looks like it is the same lens on all 3 cameras. Same size sensor, so theoretically, yes.

BUT: that does not mean the lens assembly is identical, and disassembling a camera and replacing the lens from another, while theoretically possible, is most likely not doable, unless you are very, very skilled. There is a lot more involved than just changing the lens.

I've never tried a lens from an S70, but I know for a fact that the lens from the S85, S75, CD300, CD400 and CD500 are all interchangeable and I'm guessing the S70 lens is the same as well.

Are we talking about an addon lens converter, or swapping out the actual camera lenses? Big difference. From the original post, I was thinking the latter.
