Re: Recalibrate it yourself! :)

Thank you for encouraging me into trying this. My 8mm F3.5 (nikon) is now much easier to deal with, and can even go closer than before, because of the simple calibration.

Before: Infinity focus was when you set the lens to "0.5 meters". When closest focus was 0.5 meters when the lens was set to "0.3 meters".

Now: Infinity focus is when you set the lens to "infinity". When closest focus is 0.3 meters when the lens is set to "0.3 meters".

Thanks for bumping this up - was wondering how to do that.

For anyone else attempting this - the screws are under the rubber focus ring which needs to be rolled back/slid off, they are not to be confused with the three screws on the distance ring.
