Adjust infinity stop on Elmarit-M 90?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if this can be done easily and without jepordizing the RF coupling? I have one that is perfectly coupled but the infinity stop is a little short. This shows up both in the RF (not converged on an infinity subject) and in LiveView and images.

 

I’m not looking for speculation on what might be wrong. Just clear directions on how to adjust that.

 

Thanks!

Some years ago I bought a bargain used copy of this lens which had this fault. I sent it to Leica for repair and it came back perfect having had a full CLA. This may not be the answer you want but it worked for me. My only regret is that I didn’t bother to have it coded at the same time.

My understand from Leica was that this lens (not 6-bit version) was for film bodies and it needed some adjustment for the digital bodies. I got it done when it went for a CLA and 6-bit coding.

Send it to Leica.

After CLA, mine is perfect.

It’s on its way back for another round of adjustment. Third trip, I’m afraid. I was hoping to avoid another round to get this one nailed...
