I'm turning blue in the face trying to get my camera focused!  Anyone else gotten one of the new cameras and the 6mm lens and then gotten it to focus?

Just figured it out!  It was caused by operator head gap! 🤣 

And just so others with no photography background what so ever might make the same flub up, here is what the issue was.  When using the 6mm lens, do NOT use the C to CS adapter!  I thought the adapter was because the threaded portion of the lens was smaller than the receiving threads in the camera itself!  Wrong!!  Both the 6mm and 16mm lenses have the same threaded diameter.  The adapter just adds 5mm to the focal length for the 16mm lens.

With the extra 5mm that the adapter added to the 6mm focal length it was just unable to focus.  It it working great right now.

Operator error!
