I have the LX2 version and mine also came in that configuration. I removed the hex screw and set the spring so that it worked like the manual. Resting in the 0 position. Since I did that it has tracked as it should. Not sure why it was like that. I’m in the northern hemisphere. So far I have been able to get 50 sec subs at 200mm on a mft camera shooting into the east.
Thx for the replay Deadman2, do you notice any changes in the BPM after the modification?
