    Well I ordered a Russian 50mm 1.2 projector lens and set about digging through my my bits and bobbles to figure out how to make it a fully focusing lens for my aps-c Sony a6000. It focuses to infinity and is also macro. The aperture goes from f1.2 to f1:1.2(lol) Lens "RO 109 50mm 1.2" Here is a video wait for samples at the end

    To cool.
    What was the extension of the Helicoid?
    Sorry, I have the 17-31, and it suits most of my needs but not all. For the rest I start with a small bellows.
