Cappuccino with 'special' macro Mamiya-Sekor 55 f/1.4

So, the title warrants a bit of an explanation.

I commented elsewhere on the exceptional quality of my copy of the Mamiya-Sekor 55mm f/1.4, which is fine, and this was noted when I disassembled it to check and clean if needed. The problem is that I seem to have screwed up the minimum/maximum focusing on it.

The lens supposedly has a minimum focus of 50cm (http://mamiya-nc-m42.mflenses.com/m42_mamiya_55_1.4.htm) but after my brilliant (sarcasm) surgery, it now focuses at 20cm. This is not free, mind you, as my maximum focus was 1m90 and is now closer to 1m50. Sigh.

I will have to see what I did and play around with this to set it right, but for now, I can do a close up of a cup of cappuccino without cropping.
