Agreed it could be just as simple as cutting a plastic cover for your lens then setting it on top... Start with a small hole, and increase the diameter as you go.
i dont follow... or know if i want to lolhahaha you don't want my genome! (just gonna leave this one alone though it screams to be commented upon!)
FLAWLESS idea IMO dude. thank you so much! i actually walked right around the corner today to KT&C computers and they gave me a 100 OF THEM!!!!!!!A tip for those that don't find right nuts, don't have the needed tools for cut away diaphragms in the right size, and want to try a diaphragm with no expense
Go in some computer shop/repair centers, and ask for some of those pressed-fiber insulating orange washers that always they have around (They come with cases screws set, but practically, no pc service use them for assemble pc's, so they usually gift you them, if you ask)
As you see in the images, they are thin and precise, and overall, usually they have the exact diameter of the non-threaded inside part of the aixiz focus ring , so all that you need to do is paint them with a black felter pen (just for the aesthetic part, you don't need to do it also inside, cause it's already an opaque surface that don't cause reflections ), and glue it inside the focus ring with a drip of superglue.
Once the glue it's hard, tadah, instant zero cost diaphragm
