Re: too complex

This mount replacement looks brilliant.

I just have one question: how did you remove the FL mount? Did you just start removing screws, or is there something else I'll need to know?

The 35/f3.5 showed up, but I can't get it to work the way I wanted to. With the 35, the only way to focus is to go in very tight, and at that point, it's too tight. I can only get a portion of the slide. (Maybe 60% of it?)

When I pull back to get more of the slide in the field of view, no matter what I do, I can't it in focus. I'm already at infinity, with the bellows pushed all the way in, so there's nothing left to adjust.

So it looks like the best answer is to remove the front FL mount, replace it with a shorter mount, and just go with the FD 50 Macro. Going wider doesn't work, and the FL bellows won't allow you to go much longer than 50. (Maybe 55, but that's the max.)
