I noticed an ebay listing for a re-centering ring for the K3. You can find it by searching completed listings, but I've included a screenshot here for convenience. The item was listed out of Belarus. $120 US buy it now price.

Is this a new idea, and does anyone have any experience with this seemingly simple solution to super 16 lens mount re-centering?

I picked one up, it's still in the mail. I'll post results when it comes in. Seems like a good idea if you want to use the stock zoom lower than 24mm or so. It will be interesting to see if vignetting occurs equally on both sides now or not at all. A little questionable if it's even worth it on such an inexpensive camera, but I thought I'd give it try.

Let us know how it goes. I'll be on the lookout for another one of these rings.

I assume the installation is fairly simple.

But I wondered, might it be easy to knock off your flange focal distance with a DIY installation like this on a K3? My specialty tools on hand include a flat-blade screwdriver and one wooden yard stick...

I'll probably send it off to Bernie at Super16, Inc. The camera needs another once over anyway.

I saw this too, or another eBay sale just like it.

But that's a lot of coins for a little metal ring.
