  1. Stlll no picture.
     
  2. I’ll start with the simplest first...Sharpie. The tape would require precise measurement because rangefinder prong rides through tube for fixing tape.
     
  3. This is the rear end of my Zeiss 135mm F4 in Contax mount, fully extended. Is this the "baffle"? Is so, it is solid metal, not paper or cloth.There is nothing other inside the lens barrel that would correspomd to the description. 20211216_195537.jpg
     
  4. You must rack the lens all the way out, as for close focusing. If you then see bright brass your are missing the baffle. If you don’t, the baffle is in place. Apparently, for Zeiss and Nikon, these were afterthoughts.
