2-1. Innity Focus Adjustment


Purpose
To make the lens be in focus on a subject at the infinity position. If the result is below standard, make adjustments as follows. [Single focal length lenses / Wide-end of zoom lenses] Adjust the size of the Mount Washer (The position of the distance scale should be changed in some cases) To adjust in close-up direction: thin To adjust in innity direction: thick Mount Washer

Tools
-600mm innity collimator (innity-equivalent subject is acceptable) Standard camera in which focusing screen is interchangeable (for which accuracy of focus through view nder has been conrmed) Split-image focusing screen Magnier or angle nder C NOTE [How to calculate the distance regarded as innity as the service standard] ~= 100f2 f: focal length

eg) EF50mm F1.8 ~= 100 x 50 x 50 = 250000 mm Therefore, 250m (~= 250000 mm) is the as a service standard.

[Tele end of zoom lenses] Position of the 1G Lens Assy being attached (after changed in washer size or rotated)

Standard
Lens with a distance scale Index Line The infinity mark must be aligned with the index line.

Index Line Lens without a distance scale

Innity Mark

Innity End (The zooming ring on the lens is turned to the end)

If the adjustment is incorrect:


Even if the zooming ring is rotated to the infinity end, the subject at the infinity position is out of focus. It will be no problem at ordinary temperatures, but a change in temperature will cause innity to be out of focus.

XXcm Innity Position Because the number of XXcm differs depending on the lens, refer to the instructions in each Service Manual for this information.

Procedure
1. 1. Attach the split-image focusing screen and the magnier on the standard camera. 2. Manually focus on the 600mm infinity collimator or innity-equivalent subject. 3. While in focus, check the lens referring to the designated standard.

2-2. Zoom Brush Position Adjustment


Purpose
To make the zooming information equivalent to the actual zooming position of the lens.

Tools
Multitester

Standard
Be sure to put the contact point of the Zoom Brush on the designated position A of the Zoom FPC pattern. Make sure there is no conductivity between the Zoom FPC and the Zoom Brush.

Fig-1

Adjustment Procedure
1. 1. Disassemble the lens until the Zoom Brush becomes visible. 2. Set the zoom position of the lens at TELE-end (WIDE-end depending on the lens being adjusted). 3. Loosen the zoom brush screw, and adjust the Zoom Brush position so that its contact point will be set on the A position on the Zoom FPC. 4. Check that there is no conductivity between the Zoom FPC and the Zoom Brush by using the Multitester or something similar. 5. Apply the Screw Lock to the screw head.

How To Check
Refer to the Electrical Adjustment section: 3-6 Zoom Position Check.

If the adjustment is incorrect:


- In the case of the lenses that have BP compensation values at each zoom position, the optimal BP compensation value cannot be applied. - When using with an external ash that has a zoom function, the optimal illuminating angle cannot be obtained for the ash. - When using with a DSLR, focal length information recorded in the Exif le is wrong.

2-3. Optical Adjustment


Purpose
Bring the optical performance up to standard.

Adjustment Procedure
Rotate the eccentric collars that greatly affect the optical axis or tilting. By doing so, rotate the lens group in a paralleleccentric manner or tilt the lens group to be adjusted. Because the lens group to be adjusted or the position of the eccentric collars depends on the model, refer to the Service Manual for the information. [How to adjust wide-angle lenses] The wide-angle lenses that have been introduced to the market recently and require adjustment by rotating the rear lens group in a parallel-eccentric manner are likely to get the optical axis changed during adjustments, which makes it difcult to make adjustments. In that case, it will be rather easy to x the position where the projected plane is placed parallel to the projector, and check the position of the optical axis during making adjustment as indicated below. 1. 1. Attach the AF tool lens (EF50/1.8) to the projector and set the distance between the projected plane and the lens at 50f or 80f of the tested lens. 2. By using the mirror, place the AF tool lens parallel to the projected plane. 3. Put a round sticker of 5mm in diameter on the center of the projected image.
Center of the projected image placed parallel to the AF tool lens (round red sticker)

Optical Adjustment Items


The following are optical adjustment items to be made: Centering adjustment Tilt adjustment Lens interval adjustment (curvature of eld) In the case of zoom lenses, the centering adjustment and tilt adjustment should be made at both TELE and WIDE ends. Because the adjustment items to be made are different depending on the model, refer to each Service Manual for details. Some lenses require specic optical adjustments.

Adjustment Order
Influence of the optical adjustments on each other is different depending on the model. The types of inuence can be divided into three as follows: - Each adjustment item can be conducted separately without affecting the other adjustments. - Each adjustment cannot be conducted separately, so each item should be implemented alternately to correct poor focus. - Each adjustment item cannot be conducted separately, so a complex procedure is required to implement each adjustment item. (comprehensive optical adjustment) Refer to each Service Manual for details.

2-3-3.Lens Interval Adjustment (curvature of eld)


Purpose
Number written on the 5G Lens Assy

Number written on the Zoom FPC of the Middle Lens Assy

Properly correct curvature of eld. The curvature of eld is a phenomenon where the image is not focused flat to the focal plane, but where the image is formed in a bowed shape.

Ideal lens with no curvature of eld

Curvature of eld

If the adjustment is incorrect:


When the center is in-focus, surrounding image will be greatly blurred. Focusing on the center of screen causes corners to go out of focus. Focusing on the corners of screen causes center to go out of focus.

Tools
Lens projector Projection chart Darkroom Fixed-barrel Assy for adjustment (modified or service tool) Reecting mirror

Standard
Basically, there is no standard for service regarding curvature of eld. Only the resolution standard should be met. However, some models have a certain standard for curvature of eld under the designated projected conditions.

Procedure
The curvature of field can be corrected by changing the size of washer, which is determined by the following three methods. Referring to the number described on the two lens ass ys with which the interval will be adjusted, decide the size of washer. Actually measure the dimension between the datum plane of the lens and each two lens assy respectively, and decide the size of washer based on the measured values. Measure the image bending under the designated projected conditions, and decide the size of washer based on the value. Refer to each Service Manual for details. This chart shown below is a reference.

3-8. Lens ID
[Purpose]
The Lens ID number is used in the camera's 'Lens BP Fine Control'. Whenever the Main Board for a lens is replaced, it is necessary to redo the 'Lens BP Fine Control' on the camera. If the lens adjustment data and Lens ID number from the Main Board being replaced can be read, however, then that data can be transferred to the lens after the Main Board is replaced and the Lens ID number can be input, which eliminates the need to redo the 'Lens BP Fine Control'. Lenses sold since Spring 2004 have a Lens ID number recorded on the Main Board. These Lens ID numbers are written at the factory prior to shipping.

[Procedure]

1. Click 'START'. The 'Current Lens ID' will appear and it will be possible to input the 'Updated Lens ID'. 2. Input the 'Updated Lens ID'. 3. Click 'WRITE' to write the Updated Lens ID to the lens. 4. Click 'MAIN MENU' to nish this process.
