This post is not meant to teach how to remove dust. Just ignore the dust.Before i read your forum i already tried to disassemble my lens(same lens).
But only until the the focus ring the same as your procedure. I stopped and put them back because i dont know if i can remove the front element glass. I want to open it because i can see a 1 small dust at the center of front glass and it really make me feel sad. Do you think that if i remove the inner part(same you last post picture), i can now remove the small dust inside the front element? Thank you.
Oops! I didn't notice this post. Just add a few drops of oil and let it soak overnight. A good screwdriver is the trick to get the job doneI got stuck at this screw.
The screw won't budge. It had some gunk on it (glue?). I chipped it all off and even used a q-tip with acetone to gently get all the visible blue gunk off. It still won't budge. Any thoughts?
Confirm the problem by testing at manual focus.Thank you for this guide! I made a video-guide out of it:
However, my problem wasn't fixed by this. My problem is that the lens will focus just fine from infinity to close, but won't focus a millimeter from close to infinity.
Do I need a new motor?
