      I tried shimming the lens assembly out and got distortion. Admittedly my shimming was on the crude side and may have been the problem. That is why I ended up shimming the focusing ring. Your solution is much better, if you can fix the distortion, as you have a variable throw while mine if fixed.

      Please keep us posted.
