Remarking lens focus marks
Posted 29 August 2007 - 12:07 PM
I know it could be as easy as using some masking tape and a sharpie, but I'd like a permenant solution that will stand up to long-term wear and tear.
Is there a standard methodology for remarking a lens? Should I glue a thin strip of plastic or aluminum around the barrel, find the focus points, and then have them engraved on the new strip? Should I send it off to have done by a lens tech?

I've got a lens that I'd like to remark the focus marks on. The barrel marks don't match the actual focus points at all (apparently Angenieux did this from time to time -- mixed and matched bodies with different optics).
At first, need ask of optical technician or camera repair lab.
Not need to remark the focus marks, need adjust of lens correctly.
Possible, the your lens have incorrect of flange focal distance.
From other side, the many lenses ( russian ) have possibility to change of position of ring with distance marks and need set of ring with distance marks on new position.
And not need forget about flange focal distance of camera. The camera can have not standard of flange focal distance too.
Will be better, if you will adjust of lens with your camera.

Remarking a lens appears to be less common than I had first imagined.
