| p.1 #16 · PC-E Mods - Who Else besides Nikon ? |
Well, the way I look at it, you put $2K in a lens, the pucker factor alone would cause me to have serious reservations about a DIY job. Then, times that x 3 - and I'd be checking into the nearest nut house.
Trust me, I was plenty nervous opening up and rotating the 24mm pc-e. Not because of the innards, but using jewelers screwdriver, if I would have slipped and wrecked a screw... That would have been telltale and enough to void any warranty...
Getting back to knobs. I am thinking of moving/swiching the small knob off my 45mm pc-e to the big knob location on the 24mm pc-e to see if it will then rotate a full 180 degrees on the D800e. Right now it will bump against the mirror box. Not sure if this is even doable.
You betcha-believeit on the screw damage or inadvertent paint removal - I do take very good care of my goodies. All my old manual lenses still look like new.
Forgot to mention - I did fax in a request for estimate to APS this AM.
Nikon has responded they are working up a ballpark estimate. Excellent communications from them today!
