    Just to clarify, a Diana lens only has one element, although I have seen some with a dome shaped lens and some with a flat shape.

    Yes Jon, that's why I am a bit surprised by some of the responses so far as it is a single element lens and it would seem to me getting this to work is mostly a matter of correct film plane to lens distance.

    'Focus' for these things simply alters this distance a bit - nothing as complicated as element moving within a housing.

    I haven't confirmed, so don't quote me on this, Jim can clarify, but I heard that the town of Tonopah Nevada is requiring Jim to take out a wrecking yard license...and it is not because of his antique vehicles, they are in the garage!

    Ole,
    It's all a question of relative scale. Living as I do in a tight, overcrowded, cluttered tiny apartment, the volumetric scale quickly gets distorted. With horizontal space at a major premium, everything gets piled in heaps and hills and small mountains. You should see the really HUGE mountains of paper stuff! (And I really mean HUGE!)
