Hello customer service? Your new camera takes terrible pictures. Yes, I read the manual and assembled it exactly as described. I don't understand what could be wrong!

Did you install the widget BEFORE inverting the gonkulator? Also is the rectabular excrusion bracket transmogrified in the focus tube? What kind of film were you using? Did you install the film before assembling the camera? Sometimes that can cause the gears to mash.

Try using a 2x telextender in combination with a 20mm extension tube and make sure the lens cap is centered on the viewfinder.

Following these steps will insure many years of successful operation.

I think the springenworks spronged when I wound the film ratchenthingyto tight.:blah:

Amazing how much in extra parts they put in things you don't really need.

(BTW: this lens died when it (and I) took the express route down the side of a small waterfall.)
