Hey guys. Just got a 715 and compendium from germany real cheap. The compendium is called an ewa-SK8 and it says it supports Bauer, but the 715's lens is super-long when focused to macro, and I don't know how to fit it exactly. There's a nizo on the box and in the manual (which is in German) but no diagram for the 715. I've spent about two days now trying to figure out various ways to attach it, but there's little to no support with all the "arms" which I have to bracket together across the long length of the body (Bauer geniously placed the screw thread on the far back of the bottom too).

Anyone attached one of these guys before?

Also, just as a general ?, do you set the matte in front of the lens when it's at its longest? It's kind of a pain to bring the allen wrench and adjust the thing for every setup. The matte seems to be visible up until about 17m, then it doesnt' show in frame.
Here's a link to my kit:

They've got great prices here, highly recommended. Just have to wait a couple weeks for shipping.
