Where is the aperture ring on d80 Nikon


If you are using an older lens the aperture ring will be close to the camera body when the lens is on the camera. In order to set the aperture with a D80 and older lens you must set the aperture ring to "22" or the highest number on the aperture ring available. For newer lenses there is no aperture ring. You set the aperture by setting the dial on the top left of the D80 to "A" for Aperture Priority. You then set the aperture by rotating the front dial on the right side of the camera under the shutter release button. On older lenses, after setting the aperture ring to the highest number, you then set the aperture in the same manner.

Hi, I have a 85/2.8 Sonnar. It has a spot of dirt behind the front lens. How do I open this one up to clean it? Thanks, Bart, Amsterdam


Normally I would advise against opening up a lens to clean it. You are likely to get more dust in than you get out, and it can be extremely difficult to get the bits back together again. However, if all you want to do is remove the front element, without disturbing the aperture mechanism and complex stuff at the back of the lens, then it is pretty straight-forward.

The front element (probably two or more pieces of glass cemented together) is held in place by a retaining ring that can be unscrewed. Often this ring will have two little slots on opposite sides of the lens with which to grip the ring and unscrew it. You won't have a suitable tool for this around the house, so will have to make or improvise. I have got away with using the points of the blades of a pair of scissors, but take great care, as a single slip will put a scratch across the camera lens that is much more serious than a bit of dirt. Sometimes the ring (at least the outer one, which is merely a cosmetic cover) can be shifted with a jeweller's screwdriver in just one of the slots, pushed around the circumference with your thumb. If it has no slots, you can often grip it with a disk of rubber cut from a bike innertube. This may expose a further, more businesslike retaining ring that actually holds the element in place, which you treat in the same way.

Except that I have been disassembling an old lens as I write this, and while struggling with the second ring, the glass of the front element just fell out and landed on the floor. Apparently the second ring holds something else. Oh, dear. At least it didn't break. I expect I may have disturbed the fine tuning of the focus by shifting the second ring, but I would never do this with a lens that was worth anything.

New Nikon D90 with 18 105 lens ring broken


the repair is not expensive, should be around $200 or less, provided that you did not damage the internal glasses and mechanics and sensors. You will need a receipt to repair it at Nikon USA, or goto an authorized repair center to get quote.

Pentax Optio S - lens cover rings popped off


Hi,
I'd be most happy to share with you how I solved my problem with the Pentax Optio S. It took a bit of clever 'problem-solving' thought and inspection. After suddying the design of each piece and the working components of the exposed lens area, I was able to identify which sections worked together appropriately.
And, I think it appropriate at this time that I ask you to purchase one of my plans in order to receive the full benefit of what I learned from my skillful thinking and examination, and thereby successfully repaired my camera.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Canon EOS 400D kit lens problem...


It would be very difficult and not recommended to take appart a lens unless you can easily spot set screws around the area that you want to remove. One thing I would try is to lightly push on the broken off edges back and forth to set them up straight in as much a circular orientation as possible. Sometimes when a piece of any ring breaks off the remaining edges are facing inward or upward depending on direction of impact that caused it, and that way they rub against the encapsulating material as the ring turns.

Attachment for filter and hood


If you go to the camera store that sells quantaray then they will be able to order you one if they do not have it in stock.
or you can find one on a online auction site.
you need a step down ring. I believe the size of your lens is 58 mm but you could go to any camera store and ask them to verify that. but it should also be stamped on the front of the lens written in white.

if you find 58 mm anywhere on it then I am right. And that means you need a 72 to 58 mm stepping ring.


hope that helps,
Caleb
