    Hi Guys,

    More Info about the new R1-S: to get a basic info about possible LRS, measure H-R1-S and add 6.5mm offset.
    Be aware to mount your lens ring in R1-S Position.

    Test your setting with http://www.easypano.com/forum/displa...1&TopicID=4162.

    Would be nice if you guys send your personal LRS for different lens rings.

    So long,
    Heinz

    I adjust the lower rail setting by tilting down the camera, using its magnified live view and check if the RS1 level is centered.

    hello hindenhaag
    I'm not sure if i understand these illustrations, i have couple of questions if u do not mind
    1- where to fix part 1 ?(sorry i do not know its name so i called it part 1, my attached pic will show you what i mean ) this part moves left and right and i do not see any mark
    2- how to know the R1-S Position for samyang 8mm
    3- so after fixing part 1 in the right position i need to fix part 2 (the reference point of vertical rail i.e. the small red arrow ) at distance of 6.5mm+H R1-S from part 1 , right?

    Your LR reading should be 5.8. If you use 4mm spacer, then add 0.4 to it.
