Please don't hesitate to ask me any doubt regarding this conversion.
|This is the Olympus OM-System Zuiko 28/2.0 silver nose model lens.|
|It has three screws at the bayonet base, we have to remove them.|
|But we cannot just lift the bayonet as usual, there is a special shaped lever than impedes it.
We have to remove the black shroud too, so first, remove its three screws.
|We have to remove first the black shroud...|
|..and now the bayonet.|
|From the provided spring, we have to make a double hook like this.
It makes 18mm of length.
|And now unscrew a bit this one.|
The screwdriver shows where is the screw..
|Now pass one of the hooks under the screw head, and tighten it , not too much.|
It is a good idea to drop a small quantity of nail varnish on that screw, so it will not get loose. Please let the varnish dry completely before mounting the lens on the camera: the smell must disappear.
|With the other hook, hold the aperture lever to its left position, so the iris will close.|
(provided the aperture ring has a close position)
|So we can install the Leitax mount and the Zuiko lens is ready to shoot on a modern digital camera.|
