Buzz Lightyear's lens

Good post!

After I read your last post, on finding that your's did not focus to infinity, I checked mine. It focusses at infinity, but the distance scale on the focus ring is wrong.  I have to turn the ring beyond infinity to get there.

At smaller apertures the depth of field means this does not matter, but the focus scale is not a useful aid when the lens is wide open.   A shame, because this lens is otherwise a high quality precision instrument.

I'm going to call mine Buzz.
