I recently aquired an used Aptus 75 for my 500 C/M from a former Leaf technician. At first it was hard to focus, I though I wasnīt focusing properly. I bought new screens, new lenses... but the problem maintained. There is a huge difference in the image I get in the groundglass and the imagem on the computer. The focused plane is sistematically 5/6cm behind what it was supposed to be. Iīve consulted several technicians that said the camera was ok, I shot with a Phase One back was the focusing was correct, I changed for the Leaf again and the same problem, the focused area was way far than the one selected by me on the groundglass. If I invert the groundglass the focus gets more accurate, but not entirely.
Does anyone have this problem? The guy who sold me said he never had problems, but the truth is that I used a Phase one on an ex-teatcher studio and the focus was correct, and then changed to the Leaf, and the problem came back. We didnīt have time to try the Leaf on his 555ELD.
Do Leaf/Mamiya provide a shim kit to correct this problem? Does anyone have an answer?
