made this accessory for a client who preferred to have the Vario-Elmar
80-200 focused at infinity when the focusing ring hits the hard
stop, like many other Leica-R lenses.
|Many of the long focal
Leica-R lenses don't have the hard stop of the focusing ring at the
exact infinity position, but beyond it. To compensate for
Look at the position of the white dot.
|So I didn't want to permanently modify this lens to have the hard stop at the infinity position.
Instead, I made this clip on my 3D printer.
|This plastic clip is easy to put and remove and won't mark the anodized black finish of the lens.|
|It is made a bit too thick to make sure it will work on all lenses.
Now the position of the white dot is a bit before infinity.
|So you have to sand paper it to find the correct thickness for your lens.|
|I remove the plastic dust with a brush and alcohol.|
|Try little by little until you find the correct thickness.
This is the correct infinity position for this copy of the Vario-Elmar 80-200.
