Huh? This is only valid for the M3 which only focused down to 1m for 
early models. Later models (which mine is not) changed the focus to 
0.7meters where it has remained.

My M3 with Summaron glasses can focus down to 0.62, but I'd like it 
to be able to use modern lenses too. I'll ask for the adjustment next 
time I send it out (which will be next week, since it's giving me 
uneven frame spacing).
