    Calibrating your own M lens

    Has anyone tried calibrating your own M lens?

    I imagine it isnt advisable -- however, I was just curious if anyone has tried it.

    Thank you!

    It depends which lens you are talking about. Some are easy, some hard. Some can be calibrated using a strip of copper tape on the RF cam, others need a a major teardown.

    I have calibrated a few. From re-arranging the optics to putting a strip of copper tape on the RF cam.

    50/1.1 Nokton, wide-open on the Leica m9:



    Back-Focus fixed by putting 1 layer of copper tape on the RF cam, about 0.04mm thickness or so.

    This one was the other extreme:
