I have no experience with TL lenses but did you try in M or A mode?

I tried in both modes (and tried again to make sure…) - no difference. (As an aside, with M lenses this problem of course doesn’t occur, as they’re always closed down to the chosen setting immediately, which makes them highly unpractical in another way when you’re not into the fashionable Jono Slackish ‘I always shoot wide open’ : you first have to focus with wide open aperture for precision, and then have to set the aperture to the desired value).

Thank you for your suggestion,

All best,

Hans

You don't have to focus M (or LTM) lenses at full aperture, Hans. I do it all the time at working aperture and it works fine with image magnification. At f/11 below. BTW i seem to recall that Jonathan Slack thinks alike but i may be wrong
Best,
