problem with lens : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Help, I just received my new 72mm sa xl lens from B&H. I just assumed that they would mount the lens on the board i just bought too. After unscrewing the rear elemet, then the ring, I found a screw protruding from the shutter. I am missing something? the lensboard can't fit flush on the shutter because of this screwhead, which is a tiny slotted screw. There is no small hole in the sinar board that might accomodate this screw if is intented as index. thanks for all the previous replies to my questions, chet

You have your choice of removing the screw or providing a slot/hole for it on your lens board. For now, I would suggest to remove and save it, should you later decide to use it. It is there to prevent the lens from rotating on the board. I have not found this to be a problem if the flange is tightened to the board.

I second Gary's comments.
