My first lens was a chrome summarit. On the focusing ring there was a 
little knob used for locking it at infinity. In the small amount of time 
that I used the summarit I was able to know where I was focused easily 
before I put the camera to my eye just by feeling the nob. Now that I have 
a new summicron I have to go all the way to infinity or .7 meters and work 
my way back to guess what I am focusing at. Now for the question. Has 
anyone put a marker of sorts on the focusing ring to make focusing faster? 
What do you use? how do you attach it? I was thinking that I could put a 
drop of solder on the ring but I have no idea if it would stick. Tape is 
too temporary. Any ideas?
