Hello!
i have this Rex 4 and i have never seen in another one those two small screws as shown in the picture
has it been modified or something?
also in the schneider cinegon 10 1.8 the close distanse focusing ends way further from the lenses 0.20 m. minimum. i dont think thats normal
i have attached a picture.

Hi Petin
I think you will find this is where you attach the bloop light that flashes the film when you use the MST motor

This is normal. Some lenses focus a little closer than the closest marked distance.
