Howdy everyone, I just ran into an interesting, well frustrating really, issue. I have a couple of classic Leica lens that I have used in the past on my old camera with pretty good success (here's one example). However, tonight I tried these lenses on my modified Canon T5i and they can't reach focus.
Does the removal of the lpf2 filter cause the focal plane to move? Could it cause regular lenses not to come to focus at infinity?
I use an adapter to mount the Leica lens to the Canon body. Surely I wouldn't need a different adapter when moving from my old XSi to the T5i, right?
Assuming that the focal plane has, in fact, moved and hence I need to conceptually go past infinity to reach focus, does that mean I'd need to the the lens closer to the body or farther away? Closer seems like a non-starter, but I guess it might be possible to get some sort of spacer to get it moved farther away.
Any insights are appreciated!
