Itís been so long since I worked with a micrometer and I probably have the wrong readings but there is a difference between the glass the old read about .013 and new glass .005. It is only a tiny difference if my measurements make no sense But would it be enough to throw my focus off a hair?
I have a 150mm F/5.6 Topcor which gave me good results on my monorail,but I can't carry that into the field.
Jon Shiu is correct. Are you sure you've got it on the right side?
