Lucky in life = Fate

Somebody asked me, like the time when I modified Leiz Elmarit P lens or ZM lens kind, while using 58mm helicoid ring, how I could manage to find the necessary rings etc in such efficient way ?    My answer was, There was no such good luck to find the component.   It was just work hard to try fix.   Not a good luck or magic finger, just came to a good result thanks to all those effort.  (No wonder)

Yet still, the start was a chance discovery of the 58mm reverse adapter for Nikon-Z mount.   If I need to attach something to a camera, there are two choices,  one is find a cheap adapter ring such as M42 to EOS, M42 to Nikon Ai kind, otherwise use a body cap.   To make something for Nikon-Z, their body cap was hefty £6.   Then I found a 58mm adapter for Nikon-Z about £3 or so.  —– If you may say I was lucky, yes, it was lucky.   Still, I’m puzzled why this adapter was made in the first place, especially for what in mind ?    I’m not sure whether many redundant lens which got 58mm filter size, waiting to be experimented on the newly arrived Nikon-Z camera ? ? ?

What ever, the first piece of jig-saw was placed.   For this 58mm ring, I got an idea to use a 58mm mount helicoid ring.   Then, to mount a lens, I need to find something to join from lens to 58mm helicoid.    Here, there is no inspiration kind but just try next by next among the mountain of rings I got.  (Even the same 52 to 55mm step-up ring, inside diameter of 52 mm screw is not the same = need to test)  To mount the Elmarit lens, it got to be a 49mm filter ring = 49 to 52, 52 to 55, 55 to 58 then to the helicoid.   (Instead to use cheaper 42mm, why 58mm helicoid was, since the Nikon-Z image sensor was too close to the mount, 42mm ring will cut the image corner.)  Those step-up rings adding 3mm each for the distance between lens to the body,  I still needed to put the lens further away from the camera, I used an old Nikon extension ring K-5.    

But, when I did the same to ZM lens, I needed to have less distance to mount the lens. = instead to use 58 to 55, 55 to 52, 52 to 49, 49 to 46mm, I ordered 58 to 46mm ring and waited a mail from China long time.    So, the work rely on the simple but rudimental try. — and waiting game.   No ingenious solution, neither Devine help. (You see, I’m a very good worker = good work and its mind pulls good Karma.)   😀 

The original meaning of the Karma is the rational, natural consequence (such as, the heat makes the water boil) not a paranoid delusion (typically so-called  consequence of previous life (= Hindu idea) — there is no previous life, since no perpetual soul could exist)  = its mean, straight positive effort causes positive consequence (and evil act / idea repercussions) = those rational makes your Fate !   Fate is not a kind of supernatural phenomena.   Heaven is too busy to twist every individual’s life.  Everything occurs just as a simple own cause and a consequence.   Too much thinking tend to make you a hero of victimization though a matter of fact, the world is not bothering you as such you are imagining.  They got their own business.

So, anybody can make a lens.  = You can try.    (But first, you have to find a lens to play with !)
