Sorry Marc, there is NOTHING as cantankerous as an old British Sports car.
V35 be damned... it still cannot reach the pinnacle that was held by the
old British cars fitted with Lucas electrical and tractor engines... not to
mention wooden frames! So be nice to your V35. It has a lens stage, a
negative stage, a great light source, and it goes up and down very easily.
So use a grain focusser. Autofocus is for sissies anyway.
