    [QUOTE=BrianPhotog;575297]For a little more on the inner workings, I have a DIY article on R2A/R3A rangefinder adjustment at: http://www.cosina-voigtlander.com/content/view/58/82/.

    Hi Brian,

    I checked out your pages and bookmarked them. It's very interesting. I'm wondering if the whole alignment issue you discuss is the issue I'm having.

    When I use the focus patch on my r3a, I can usually line up high contrast vertical lines, but it doesn't quite work with other things. Example: I'm focusing on a face with glasses. When the nose is focused according to patch alignment, I notice the rims on the glasses are not. Is this a depth of field issue?

    The tip of the nose and the glasses are most likely on different distances from your camera and hence can’t be in focus at the same time.

    Cheers.

    Yep! the glasses are behind the nose so both can't be the focal point.

    Gents, For what it's worth, I've started a Bessa repair Wiki with the intent of offering a place where Bessa knowledge can be consolidated:
    http://bessar.wetpaint.com/

    Feel free to use it or ignore it as pleases you. It has pointers to the articles you've mentioned above.

    I've posted information about this wiki several times on Rangefinderforum.com and the information has never been deleted.

    I was banned from RFF [...] quite some time ago now - back when the site was owned by Jorge Torballa.

    It was a blessing in disguise as I had just discovered APUG and have never really looked back.

    I'm going to check out BrianPhotog's site recommendation. I remember him from my RFF days - good to "hear" from him again.

    BTW: I've only lightly used my two CV Bessa R2S's - but very interested in hearing about how they stand up over time. And how, if need be, to get them repaired.

    There are a lot of good people here from what I see. Why did they ban you George? You seem like a knowledgeable and friendly person.

    Ok, then how come when I focus on a wall frame and the vertical sides are aligned, the top side is not? Is this also a distance issue? If I align right up to the top corner, the vertical side is good and the top side is slightly off ... It sort of bothers me, but if it will all come out in focus anyway then I´m not too concerned.

    Thanks. I never quite knew why and no longer care. It was a long while ago.

    Maybe they were having their period.

    Vertical misalignment? I have a article on vertically adjusting the RF patch at http://www.cosina-voigtlander.com/content/view/58/82/, but I'm not sure that's what your issue is.
