Hi Bob,

Mine is the same, so I don't see it as a problem, but just one of those

When you get an answer from Nils would you please pass it along for other
280 R8 owners.  Many thanks.

It maybe a simple thing like it just doesn't make the connection as it was
never intended to show 2.8. But if you had a ROM contacted lens it might do
it then.
