    Re: Seriously strange HR32 problem.

    Dave at Capture Integration sent me a loaner while my HR32 is being repaired. It is on a totally different mount and has absolutely no play in the mount or lens elements. I am wondering if mine was an early production model and they found the mount to be inadequate and changed it.

    My lens had some play in it and I could take mine totally apart with no tools just hand strength. That is both the rear element and the spanner ring that holds the front element. Of course I didn't mess with it until it started having problems but I was surprised at how loosely it was put together. Especially now that I see a newer lens. This new one is tight in the mount, rear element and front element. A totally different feel from my lens. I'll bet that contributed to whatever the problem turns out to be.

    As a follow-up, you can see the bars are worthless for this lens even without the CF.

    For a zeroed lens those don't look that great to me and I thought the 32HR was much sharper than that. The right side especially looks a little smudgy.

    Were you at some distance from the subject and a heat haze is possibly effecting sharpness?

    That sign was more than a 1/4 mile and unsharpened. At f/5.6 it looks pretty good to me.
