Great bubbles! Short money for a kewl lens. The clay gizmo looks very

I think there may be an adapter issue and the lens issue as you point out.
A little of each. Here's how the lens that came with the Praktiflex fits, slightly to the left.

If it were 90°, it would be easy to fix. The mount on the back of the adapter is simply held on by four screws. It may
