Hello all, back again with another punishing and probably quiet obvious question.
I have a PL mount lens, it fits beautifully directly into the PL mount on one of my cameras but does not fit in the PL-M43 adaptor I have for another camera.
It appears that the chamfer at the rear of the lens flange is too big for the adaptor, making it sit too high / not seat right, thus not being able to turn the locking ring. I put some sharpie on the chamfer and the adaptor scratched it off, so i'm 90% sure that I'm on the right track.
My question is ... do I have any other option aside from putting it in a lathe and making the corresponding chamfer in the adaptor a bit deeper? It would only need .5mm
See photo to substantiate my terrible description of the issue.
Thanks for any help.
ps ... parts have since been cleaned, excuse the dirt
