I'm relatively new here so I'm not sure if this topic has been brought up before, but i haven't seen a post about this thus far.
What can I do with an old lens that probably couldn't be sold off due to "damages"? I had my kit lens quite a while ago, and through very rugged use it has been quite worn out. Lens elements are entirely fine, functions entirely fine, except the zoom ring has become quite stiff and maybe, just maybe, the focus isn't all that accurate anymore.
Selling it off is futile; it's just a 18-55 kit lens, and repairing it is out of question.
Any ideas what to do with it?
Dissect it? Break it into pieces that can be used in various creative art projects or modifications?
