Hey Ed,
Nope, no longer works. It wasn't a big loss.
Even though it was an f:2.8 Macro it didn't take all that sharp of a photo.
I only used it until I got a better lens. I wouldn't sell it, but I'd give it to someone if they wanted it.

Bandsaw? Aw c'mon, where's your sense of adventure? Why not use a cutting torch?!

The lens locking pin could have not been able to depressed far enough to release it, or the Ricoh pin is the culprit - it is 45 degrees to the right of the arrow in your photo. A slight difference in the lens mount on one camera could be enough to hang it up on one camera and not another. Anyway, the saw was safer than a sledgehammer.

Sorry to hear about your lens!

Is it possible to turn this lens into a shift or lensbaby thingy?

Wow! I missed this thread. Sorry to hear you had to cut the lens off, but glad to hear you have your camera back. Yeah, I'm not any good at trying to con my hubby either. He'd see right through me if tried your story.

Hey guys,
Thanks for chiming in...
Ted, The torch idea didn't come to mind for some reason, would have been a lot faster!

Pen, you're probably right. I'm going to be a lot more careful from now on!

Daniel, I hadn't thought about it... maybe I'll do some experimenting.
Hey ya, Patty. It was no big loss, not the greatest lens. I think Linda might go for it if she came out with a better camera.
