I have this new Rainbow adapter but when the lens locks into place the lens is not aligned on at the top. Can anyone advise me if I am doing something wrong.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Yes, I have had that happen a number of times and in each case it becomes a task of alligning the adapter to the lens. This is done with three or four tiny set screws on the adapter mounting ring which must be backed off so you can turn the lens to the desired position and set the screws. They are invariably Philips screws which respond to a PH 00 head usually found on a 40-50mm shaft length. They are often so hard to turn that you break the screwdriver until you invest in a a higher quality miniature screwdriver something like this http://www.amazon.com/Wera-05118019002-Kraftform-Electronics-Screwdriver/dp/B003ES5M1M Unfortunately some adapters do not allow adjustment.

I keep one on my desk because it will also open many lenses.
