    Hi Víktor,
    First of all thanks so much for this CLA tutorial.
    I’ve just bought one and everything went perfect.
    The lens had a minor detail i’ve noticed when i made the purchase and after the CLA it’s exactly the exactly same problem remains.
    When i tight the lower and upper part of the lens in the final procedure of the CLA, the red marking on the aperture preset selector won’t match the center marking on my focusing markings. It always stays a 1/4 turn to the left out of place. I think that the the ring of shim has been changed in the past by someone and i wont get it aligned when joining both parts of the lens in the end. Anyway, i’ve mande my measurements and focusing measure is spot on, really spot on.
    Would you be able to tell me the size (height of ring) so i can compare to the one i have? Maybe i have a wrong one and need to get one with the right size, maybe fabricating one myself.
    Your help ia much appreciated! Million thanks from Portugal.
