Hi,

Finally got a lens - angenieux zoom type 10-12 B no. 1423333 - for my eclair acl and I have a couple of problems. First, the focus is only good at 120mm. Does this sound like only a lens issue or could it be a camera issue as well? Secondly, the lens zooms automatically from 40mm to 120mm. Does this sound weird?

thx

It sounds like your lens needs to be rebuilt. Also check the flange on the camera. Have you tried other lenses?

As Tom said, you probably need to check lens and camera depth. The zooming-by-itself definitely means you need re-lubrication of the lens zoom cam barrel.

hello,

thanks for the replies. No, I haven't tried to use other lens' yet - financial reason and all. So I suppose I'll need to take it in for inspection and possible service. Can these test be done on my own? thx again.

I would call Otto Nemenz and see if they'll check the flange for you. Paul Duclos can rebuild it or at least look at it. He's in the valley on Lankershim last I heard.
