Only the programming of the Dandelions is still an mental torture,,,

I admit I have little knowledge of what programming is involved, but is it not possible to pre-prepare, indeed perhaps have a library of different programs for different lenses and flash the pre-prepared code across to the chip?

I would be interested to see a drawing of where you can and cannot cut into the dandelion block .
Yes, what I found out is that the Dandelions are not equal size, they differ in height especially, along the lens axis.You can trim the ends, you can trim the back curve and round off the corners.Then you can trim off more or less all martial between the pins, but hen you need to replace it with epoxy gule.

All the Dandelions are pre-programmed to 45m f/2.8 i believe,,,
They are not designed like B's CPU's,,,So my guess would be no,,,
