I was adjusting a rangefinder the other day that would do that. It's like it was hitting a stop or something. Can't remember what it was. It was ok going the other way though. I've seen a Yashica Electro 35 for 20, not sure whether to go for it or not. Might have to try my Tamron 28mm on the G1.

20 is a great price. Go for it if it looks decent. Still haven't used mine.
Here's a side by side of a Zuiko 50mm and the 35-70 zoom.

Wow, that is compact. Mine was posted out today so I should see it in a few days. Hoping it will be an easy fix.

Finished tinkering with the Minolta. Shutter speeds were as good as you'd want, RF adjusted, a bit of cleaning and the rest checks out. The RF and frame lines work off a pin that just out of the bottom of the RF/VF box and the back of the focus helix pushes against it. The RF works by a lever that sits against the pin, it was a bit slow to return with the spring and was stopping just short of the end. When you moved the other way (focused from short to long) the first movement released it then it caught back up with where it should be. Loosened it off and it's fine. It's all nicely made, I'll certainly give them that. Pity no case but might give it a go soon.

I'm sure you can find a case for it. I need to adjust the vertical alignment on the Seagull 205, it's a little bit out. I also tried out the L39-M43 with a Zorki lens but it doesn't to infinity. Will have to look into it but I think you can adjust the adapter.

So do you lot have any shooting plans this weekend or is it too cold? Lovely sunny day here but I think I'll stay in the warm and browse eBay. Actually, just found a film from my late Grandad to scan.

Sold as spares or repairs for 6.99 plus post. Can't find anything wrong, just needed new batteries and a little attention to the mode switch. The 28mm lens is from the ME Super kit I bought a while back.

That looks a nice clean machine. Good find.
No photography for me this weekend. Out on a Yamaha today - freezing!
