Minox 35GT focus ring

  1. I think my camera is out of focus as some people from this forum said.
    BUT
    When I set he focus to infinity or the closest distance(3 ft) the arrow lines up
    perfectly to the "∞" (infinity sign) and "3".
    IF my 35GT's focus is out because the focus ring's "grub" screws are not holding it on the right
    place. Then I think the arrow wouldn't line up to 'infinity' or '3'.
    Could anybody enlighten me please? : )
     
  2. ginon, from your description, your ring seems ok, but there are other factors contributing to
    unsharp focus, in Minox 35, the lens retraction/extension mechanism could be worn out, and that certainly will cause unsharp focus.
     
  3. Thank you Martin. Where can I locate this lens retraction/extension mechanism? Is it where the front black plastic flap joins the body(the joint I'd say)
