feel free to laugh...20/01/2013 - 1:22 AM
So...I have been carrying around this non-functional lens for a couple of decades meaning to get it fixed but always having to put funds towards something else. So I figured what the heck- I will give it a go. The zoom/focus wasn't turning and the iris blades had slid off to the side. Anyway, got the spring cleaned up and the focus works great-but after I got the front glass off- me in my infinite wisdom decided to tilt the lens to take a look at the other end out fell the blades- all 15 of them. so.... feel free to laugh and remind me what a dunce I am but if you have any suggestions on the best way to get these @#%!!! blades back in correctly please PM me because I doubt anyone else would do something so foolish Time for an adult beverage
