Well... In astrophotography circles many use "focal reducers" to achieve exactly what you are discussing - it is an optical device inserted between the telescope and the camera that reduces the focal length, increases the f-stop rating of the scope, and makes the field of view wider. If they can do it for 500mm to 2000mm focal length scopes (and probably more) they can probably do it for at least some types of camera lenses. The real question would be how much of a market exists for such a device in the photo community?

Good luck,
Richard
