I was able to snag this little gem for $199 from ebay (via slickdeals). Here's a shot from taking it out last night. this lens can be a lot of fun! Looking forward to using it.

my focal ring somehow managed to get stuck at 3ft.
it won't turn at all.
anyone know of any videos or manuals on this lens ?

Searched but couldn't find anything.

There's a set of small screws under the rubber grip that you might need to adjust slightly.
You should be able to use a small flathead screwdriver to pry up the grip without disassembling the whole top of the lens.

There are 3 or 4 of them I think - here's an example:

If you need to take it apart, when taking the top rings off, be careful to catch the small bearing that will fall out - pic here (external link)

Here's a disassembly video: https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=loW9cl5MMGU (external link)
(warning: mute the audio! it's got an awful, loud soundtrack)


I have a set of random images from when I disassembled mine:

was a bit disappointed that the top & bottom part of the picture, from my 5D2, was blocked by the metal lens hood. :-(

These links might interest you then...

Sorry if its already been answered:
Is there any difference between the version I and II of this lens apart from the removable lens hood?
