I'm somewhat frustrated by the current design on the EOS - T2 lens adapter. The release pin feels like can break at any moment when trying to release the lens. In addition, the 4 screws holding and adjusting tilt are not uniform from lens to lens. Some lens go in totally smoothing, while others are virtually impossible to get on the adapter. There seems to be no consistency. I'm past the return date at High Point, but this really has been very frustrating as I mentioned. There seems to be no "guide" as to how much is too tight or too loose, or how to calibrate so we know there is no tilt being introduced. Really could use some help all around..
Thanks in advance..
On the side that they connect to the adapter, they're not different in size. Think about your reply. You're saying that somehow the adapter is tied to "specific" sizes of a standardized Canon mount?? ALL Canon mount lenses are exactly the same or they wouldn't mount to a DSLR. It is the adapter that is apparently not uniform (or standard) when handling different lenses. As I said, I've found that by tightening or loosening the 4 small screws, it will accept (or reject) the mounting of different lenses. It should be that way. In addition, the release button (again as I mentioned) feels like it could break off if too much pressure is applied. It seems I've got a very poorly made one, or the design is faulty.
Yes. I use lenses as much as I do telescopes for imaging. Do you have an anticipated time for an updated version? If I can make a suggestion? PLEASE fix the release mechanism to mimic the way camera manufacturers use to release a lens from a DSLR. Obviously it cannot be an exact duplicate of that function, but has has to be more sturdy than the current implementation.
If you would like, since I am a commercial photographer, I would be more than glad to work with whomever is working on the new design. It is cheaper to correct things before implementation than after.
