| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Zeiss 21 MM conversion problem - aperture ring not working |
Setting my frustration aside, I'm hoping someone here can give me good guidance on what to do next.
I'm mid-process in converting a Zeiss 21/2.8 Distagon MM (C/Y mount) over to Nikon using a Leitax adaptor, and all has been smooth in the disassembly going by the instructions on the leitax website....except two things....one, the aperture ring after removal now doesn't activate the aperture blades when I put it back on.
The arm going down from the aperture ring can't nestle into the U shaped metal piece, as the U shaped metal piece is too far forward and can't come back far enough for the two pieces to nestle in alignment. The vertical arm from the aperture ring has to go into the U shaped space, but the U shaped piece is blocked by something, which is the number two issue - in the movement of the U shaped piece forward or back...the aperture blades aren't turning anymore.
Anyone here have experience with this conversion? All help appreciated very much as I really need to get this lens back in operation.
Thanks everyone, sincerely,
