newbie question / problem (m3)

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi everyone, I was just given a 1957 (I believe) M3-910 139 in really good condition.

It came with a Summicron 1:2/50 #1708858.

 

Everything seams to be working except the lens does something odd...

 

When you focus from lock, it focuses close, but the stop at the top of the lean keeps me from focusing any farther than 36 inches but there are more marking for 36 inches - infinity after the stop...

 

Now I'm probably just being a newbie, but I can't figure out how to get past the stop!

In new to Leica but not to photography, I've never seen anything like this.

 

Please advise, and advice is greatly appreciated,

 

-John
