Re: Setting aperture hack ?

Hi Franco, I have been slowed down by some jobs that needed doing before a week of rain. So I have not prepped any photo's. I'm planning on making a little series of pics on what I have done with this lens. Plus some of the screws are super tiny and tight for a novice tinkerer.

On another -related - subject; The 8-120 has two lens wrench holes in the exposed final element. I feel like they are begging me to turn them. Do you think it's possible to leave the lens as is, but replace that final element with another which would 'fan' out the image. I mean without mad distortion or paying an arm and leg?

Or I wonder if the image would expand by partially unscrewing and opening up the  element? Closer to the sensor would probably be smaller?
