Question about Camera Lenses
The focus ring started to slip, and not move the barrel. In attempting to understand what was wrong with it I managed to unscrew the whole lens barrel from the focus ring (oops) mechanically sound. I just need to understand how to fit it all back together again. I now understand that all I need to have done was tighten the little screws under th erubber ring of the focus ring. Too late. The lens has a reverse screw, but I need to line up the aperture mechanism etc which is impossible if I'm screwing down onto it. A site with pictures would be ideal! Cheers, from a very upset wide angle fan.
It would be great to be able to see some les diagrams hey

When disassembling the elicoids, one must care to procede very slowly and mark the points at which the parts separate. Then follow the reverse procedure. A good amount of mechanical skill is necessary.
This is the minimum requirement to avoid disaster.
The first time I attempted to disassemble the elicoids of a Zeiss Biotar, I took it apart in two minutes. To reassemble, four hours. Now I can do it in twenty minutes.

It might just be better to take this to somewhere like Jessops and see if they will do it for you..
