Well, the way I look at it, you put $2K in a lens, the pucker factor alone would cause me to have serious reservations about a DIY job. Then, times that x 3 - and I'd be checking into the nearest nut house.
Trust me, I was plenty nervous opening up and rotating the 24mm pc-e. Not because of the innards, but using jewelers screwdriver, if I would have slipped and wrecked a screw... That would have been telltale and enough to void any warranty...
Getting back to knobs. I am thinking of moving/swiching the small knob off my 45mm pc-e to the big knob location on the 24mm pc-e to see if it will then rotate a full 180 degrees on the D800e. Right now it will bump against the mirror box. Not sure if this is even doable.
