hi all,

just ordered my NN5 & R-D16 from Badders - thanks Andy!

What are the upper & lower rail settings for the following:

Canon 450D & Sigma 8mm f3.5 fisheye
Canon 450D & Canon EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5
Canon 450D & stock 18-55mm lens

There used to be a long list some years ago, but I know it was removed because certain 'competitors' were using it to calibrate their own products...... :ohmy:

Thanks

Stu

Thanks Andy,

My settings differ slightly from those printed for 450D / Sigma 8mm f3.5 - more like c.62mm for the bottom rail. I am using the QRS2 which is c.23mm thick. Anyone else got this combo who can confirm the rail settings...

cheers

Stu

Here's the best way I know of to confirm settings yourself:
