Here is another 58mm @ f/2.0
It could be that Erik was chipping my 105/4 micro?

Apparently you are right, Jakov. 105 Micro it is.

Not chipping as such, but I was hoping that Erik might help with a Mamiya Sekor 500/5.6 that I have and is not achieving infinity focus...
Would that be possible?

The lens is manual focus and quite simple in construction.
I have opened it easily to take out the sliding shade, which had a dent and had come stuck (during shipping I think). There was also a light baffle that had come lose inside and I put it back in place.
I suspect someone experienced like you might form an idea on how to restore infinity focus.
I'd be happy if you were willing to just have a look at it, with no promise to fix it.

Naturally I can have a look ;)

It's just also a big thing to haul to Scotland camera and all,,,

You could poste some images of it maybe it can be done online,,, by the NikonGear community  ;D

Thanks, I'll be driving so that is not a problem for me.

But yes, I can definitely show pictures, I will open a thread later when I am back home.

OK, preparations for the NG Scotland Event have commenced. I'll be in Scotland already May 1st so need to know what lens(es) people are keen on having CPU-modified in order to bring the appropriate parts.

Please just add your name and the lens(es) to this thread. No obligations, monetary or otherwise,  are incurred.

I know Bjørn will go through these with a firm scrutinizing eye - But 55mm 1.2 is a no chipping lens  :)
