Re: Shimming Viewfinder on 5D


In a similar situation. Recently acquired a 5D and just ordered an EE-S screen.
I wanted to add this to the original thread with the part numbers for the washers, but it is closed.
The source to buy the shims in Australia is partsovernight.com.au . Unfortunately the cost for each shim is between $4 and $5, so the whole set would cost more than $50 + $10 shipping.

Toothwalker: can you share how to calculate the thickness of the shim required based on the focal length of the lens, distance of the test object and amount of front back focus? It would be nice not to have to order the whole set but approximately calculate the required shimming and add a few thin shims for fine tuning.
