    The sensor is behind the OLPF. So you changing the back focus won't give more space. you would hit firts the fixed OLPF.

    I was referring to this specific instance. If the operator knows what they are doing, you can change the back focus anytime. We used to do this during our Television studio production days.

    Sometimes a DoP might insist that he/she wants to use a specific lens (perhaps for the looks or likes the freggin' lens, getting a boner etc.) If and when this occurs, you could resort to adjusting the back focus or by inserting flanges or shims to a cinema lens.
    Unfortunately the distance from the rear element surface to the imaging plane (sensor surface) is fixed so no matter what you do the clearance remains the same . If you move the glass away from the sensor the lens can only be sharp in macro (close up) mode.
    Correction:
    yes the OLPF clearance will change so you may be actually able to clear some lenses.

    But the OLPF doesn't change postion. Only the sensor.

    Yes but if the lens to sensor position is fixed and they both move forward, the rear part of the lens that hit the OLPF before may clear it now as it has moved forward with the sensor. Up to the point when the sensor is prevented from moving forward any more by the rear surface of the OLPF..

    Sorry no shimming is needed as you maintain the back focal distance

    You could possibly look into using the Leica OLPF which was designed to sit the glass slightly further back so the M0.8's would work (the wider ones).

    Not actually sure if this could resolve your issue but if you're just about hitting the glass this might get you the little smidge extra that you need.
