Hi Bill, Nick, John and optic speciallist out there,
following me there is nothing in between the lensflange and the sensorplane. According to Nikon Europe Support the distance lens flange / sensor plane is 46.5mm for ALL NIKON F-MOUNT CAMERAS.
My conclusion, all the rail settings for different lenses should be the same for these cameras behalf the tripod mount is at the same place. So i tested my D3 settings for 14-24mm/f2.8 with my D200, and they are the same.
So let us try to get data for the distance from lens flange to tripod mount of the different nikons with F-mount. I could not get data about this from nikon.
So when the tripod mounts are in same positions, i could transfer the upper rail settings from D70S to D200 D300 D3 etc. for all the lenses mentioned in the data base
Am i right Be aware of battery grips, cause the the mounts differ in the sagittal = front to back, and i am not shure whether you can solve this problem with a T-adaptor, i do not think so.
I will go on testing,
looking forward to your response
