    CV 35mm pancake/tabletop tripod focusing issue

    Hello,

    I use CV 35mm Pancake II lens with Bessa R2A. I have problem with using camera with that lens on small tabletop tripod (or other "normal" size tripod). Problem is, when camera/lens is mounted on tripod, base plate of tripod's head block movement of focusing lever of lens. How do you resolve that issue? I thought to mount on tripod's head base plate screw some additional screw to lift up camera from tripod's head base plate and that way to make free space between base plate and lens focusing lever. Can something for that be bought or DIY is option?

    Thank you.

    It might be a bit expensive for a spacer, but it would do dual duty... How about the CV trigger winder?

    Alternately, a small block of wood, a threaded insert, and a 1/4 20 machine screw of appropriate length could work. Just offset the threaded insert from a through hole for the 1/4 20 machine screw just a bit.
