  6. Here is the ISSUE.  internal focus ring has contact with Distance readout PCB. The PCB is mounted by double sided tape. This is a design flaw. double sided tape drifts over time, and let the PCB slip out. Here is the ISSUE.  internal focus ring has contact with Distance readout PCB.

  7. More detail. The infinity end is glued using some better glue(dark material), while the close end is NOT. The fix is Mark or remember the position BEFORE removing 2 screws and contact brush! but relax, this part is not extremely precise.

    • Mark or remember the position BEFORE removing 2 screws and contact brush! but relax, this part is not extremely precise.

    • Lift the PCB. Cleanup double sided tape. Glue the PCB back firmly against the inner edge.

    • Use proper glue, like "high viscous super glue" or "2-part epoxy resin". Do NOT use low viscous glue, it will mess up and contaminate the contacts.

    • Now put it back, following these instructions in reverse order.

    • Screw tighten torque list.

    • Internal M1.6 screws: 0.12N.m.

    • Tripod mount M2.0 screws: 0.2N.m.

    • 2 screws on switch panel: 0.06~0.08N.m (watch out the plastic is very fragile)

结论

Be patient and Good Luck!!!

Does this fault affect manual focus also ?

Thanks

It does. And might be worse, because MF sometimes goes faster than AF, then stuck deeper…

Hi Terrance,

So is your lens good til now after this fix? By the way, what type of glue specifically did you use?

t2psalm - 回复

Good as brand new :D. I used “super glue“ and learned the lesson. Luckily the mess is not very bad, cleaned that up and the great lens is happy again.

Will whis work even if my focus ring is stiff (but moves and “jumps”) AF works finw
