PC 85mm f2.8 axis shift rotate issue .
« on: June 30, 2020, 05:11:08 »
Small problem.
The two flat cables that connect the front to back move about into the lens area and stopped it from shifting which led to them beginning unplugged.
I can probably plug them back in but won't they just be in the way again?
Obviously it works without apperature data just fine but I'd like to resolve this best I can

The Boss will answer that one when he sees it. (It's one of my favorite lenses.)

Not good enough...

Cables for rotation position are different.

Erick with Bjorn was trying to do in Fryburg, no cigar. Price at Nikon Dortmund is quit high.
I did give-up.

Yes, longer cable is needed for a good solution  ;) 
You can get it from Nikon.

Hmm. I guess I'll get a quote and see if it is worth it. I ended up just gaffers taping them down inside the body. Thanks

Thankfully the lens works fine. Actually be finally used it today for the first time. Amazingly sharp and versatile.
