    Superb..thanks for that Heinz.......any idea of the LRS with the Nadir adapter the other way round please?
    Btw....the screw arrived today.............thanks...you've been a great help.
    Also, I shot 6 around at 0 degrees, on my 16mm fisheye...I'm sure someone mentioned it's possible with 6 at -7.5 (not inc. n+z of course)

      Hi Heinz
      Just re-tested for my 16mm fisheye and I'm nearer to 102mm, I suppose they can all vary slightly? Please see my new thread about LRS setting....could do with some advice please.
      thanks

            Thank you Heinz for the info.....was there a reason for swapping the rail round to the opposite side?
            John
            Ah just noticed, you used an M2....would the settings be a lot different you think?

              Hi John,

              Just to set it clear: Mount the MFR210 directly to the foot of the lens collar with two screws. Then you place the rail into the rotators clamp.

              The only thing that changes is the LRS because the lens is mounted to the clamp. The upper rail settings will be the same, because the lens is set to the clamp by the directly mounted rail. It is similar to a 300mm/f2.8. You mount the lens to the upper clamp and then you mount the camera to the lens. So the camera is not mounted to the M1/M2.

                Yep just realized what you meant Heinz..thanks......also it's because I don't have/use a lens collar......I have the 'lighter' f4 version.

                  Hi John,

                  Then you have to find the settings on your own because it is another lens.
