stiff focusing? : LUSENET : Leica Photography : One Thread

Just got my R-28mm f2.8 ROM back from Leica service. Had a couple things addressed including the focusing--there had been some play in it and I asked it be removed. Now there is no play but it is very stiff and tight to turn... anybody know if sitting in front of the toob twisting it back and forth will loosen it up? Any other ideas? I'd like it to be looser but still without focus play.

Sounds like the word of experiance.

They over-greased it. You can try working it out but if it were me I'd ship it right back to Leica and tell them somewhere in the middle bewteen 2 extremes would be just right.

yeah, twisting it back and forth doesnt really do much, thats unless you do it 24 hours for the next year! :)
