    • For reassembly make note of the gold contacts with respect to the serial number for proper positioning.

  2. Remove the 3 Board Cushions These can get lost easily and is why we remove these first.  Place these in a small plastic bag or in a safe secure location.  Be careful with ESD.  Static Discharge can short your board.

  5. Remove 4 - 4mm screws.  Once removed the barrel will release and extend. Make a marking (i used white) to align with the White marking on the Focus ring to make re-assembly easier Notice the 3 Grooves.  These are the slide grooves where the barrel moves up and down.  You will need to release the pins from the grooves at each point - one by one by using pressure.

  7. Apply pressure out the outter tip near pin pushing in slightly and gently release the pin from the barrel.  Do this on all three locations where the pins are located. I have seen people push the focus ring outward to release the pins... which works but you need to be careful because the focus ring is fragile and it can bend easy.  If you bend the focus ring then you will have a lens that jams.

moisture got into lens and I need to clean all glass. How do I completely disassemble to get inside of lenses?

This tear down should give you access to the outer glass elements; however, it will not give you access to the 2 part enclosed glass elements.

How to replace Operational Barrel Assembly?

matmad91 - Reply

I bought a spare part of the stationary Barrel assembly is not joining with outer barrel assembly. The part number is correct, but the stationary barely is supposed to easily slide into the outer barrel, and this is not happening. Any thoughts ?

Very helpful instructions. Despite this, I had enormous difficulty reassembling the lens - it’s the part where all the pegs have to go in their correct slots in the groove tube while a ribbon cable remains neatly folded out of the way that nearly defeated me. Thank you to the author.
