Can this be considered 'Alt'? Took a gamble on one that went for quite a bit less than the usual price; pristine glass but frozen focus ring. Early sample (circa 1970), engraved "Nippon Kogaku", factory AI kit converted. After a diagnostic, it's off for a CLA, which gratefully, was all that was needed.

Thanks! I've previously used my friend's Canon 8-15 FE zoom and I was bitten by the bug.

As far as I'm concerned, yes. It's way Alt.

So, does that mean that the focus ring is freed up?

Yes. The lubricant had gummed up and the mechanism needed adjustment. So they say...

I just bought a Cosina/Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 Nokton for my OMD-EM-1. It's fun manually focusing with the magnified view. Just like the old days! (except there was a split image then, not a magnified image).

Just tracked down a like-new contax zeiss 50mm f/1.4 with very high serial number. I'm surprised how tiny it feels compare to the rest of my zeiss.

Not exactly alt around here, but Sony FE 55/1.8. I bought the display copy, so that I could fully test the corners before buying. I am pretty confident that I don't have a flawed copy, *whew*.
