| p.3 #2 · How to (not) fix your Rokkor 58/1.2 for infinity on EOS (5D2). |
ok, i made a video of how to remove the retaining ring here.
i also made a brief writeup of the process on the flickr page and will post it to the lens repair/modification thread.
Tanks for that, it looks extremely easy. It will helpful once I can put my hand on one of these Rokkor. Though I don't know if it is that easy on my 35lux R, but it is irrelevant now
one thing I am not clear is: after last step, is the last glass element still in the retaining ring? I can't see it clearly.
And I see you have turn table running, no wonder you shoot film also
yes, the record playing in the video is only a few years younger than the lens.
No, when you lift off the retaining ring the rear element stays in place. in fact, i believe it actually takes a little force if you want to get the rear element out of the rest of the optical block.
