Anamorphic Mc 2x Isco - Gottingen Focus ring locked

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would be hugely greatful if someone can offer me some advice on this lens and the problem i have with it.

 

I have just recieved a Isco - Gottingen lens and the focus ring seems to be locked at 16m.  I'm unable to focus and was hoping someone was able to inform me the correct way to be able to fix this, or inform me as to which sew to undo.

 

 

Many thanks for you time :)

You have to pull the ring until it pops out a little, then the focus ring will be unlocked. At least on my isco it's this way (yours looks different)

When I got mine, the first time it was pretty hard but then it worked flawlessly.

Hi Araccaria and Ken,

 

Thanks so much for your help with this.  I tried both, pulling it out from the front and pushin it back in.  But it still doesn't want to move.  I have undone the small screws around the lens to see if one was locking it in, but it didn't help.

 

Thanks anyway, i will continue to try.

      I'm selling a copy of the smallest Anamorphic lens in the world, the Baby Hypergonar 1.75x. It's been said there were only about 50 of these ever made. Designed by the OG, Henri Chretien, and made in 1957.
      It is in great condition. Comes with a little black carry case. Really lovely copy, no scatches, fungus, haze. Body is in great shape. There are a few small coating blemishes on the front, but they are so hard to see I couldn't even capture them in the pictures, and they don't show up in performance. 
      Can be used by just focusing your taking lens or in combination with a single focus variable diopter. Neutral unique flares and beautiful rendering.
      - PRICE: $1500 USD
      - LENS NAME: Baby Hypergonar
      - CONDITION: Near Mint Optics, Mint Body
      - PAYMENT METHOD: PayPal
      - LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA, USA
      - FEES & SHIPPING: PayPal fees and shipping paid by buyer.
       
      Please PM me if interested
