The larger screws for my "pre-30k serial number" FL 55 arrived today. I replaced all three smaller screws. The smaller screws had worked and two of the three held fine before, but all three larger ones bit and its feels a little more solid all around. You were right about the tighter fit to the camera mount after installing the bigger screws. After taking the lens off and putting it back on a couple of times it smoothed out. Thanks for all your follow-up.
A tip for anyone using the converted FL 55mm f/1.2 lens...
You probably already know the switch for automatic / manual focusing has to be set to "M" for the aperture ring setting to engage. With narrow apertures the viewfinder can darken significantly. I have had some success using the A / M switch to open up the lens for composing and focusing, then quickly switching back to the aperture I want for metering and taking the shot.
