Taking them apart is easy. Putting them back together is rather difficult.

this holds true for so many things! ;)

Dayum, those legs seem to go on forever!

Certainly a case where the lens perspective distortion play well into the shot composition, rather than fighting it.

Nice shots!

I took the lens apart tonight after following this youtube tear town: https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=loW9cl5MMGU (external link)

NOTE There are additional steps in that teardown that you do not need to do!


Here's my full set of pictures: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjH​oPQCP (external link)

The guts of the lens:


It turned out that the only issue with mine was that the front element had come loose, and the focus scale was off :oops: ... so I tightened up the front element, and did a quick focus test, and it's back in business.

thanks for that video...and the pics...i just bought one of these off of ebay that has a stuck aperture...i figure i can somehow fix it...
