dennis - Contestar

why can't You show how the lens is mount to that assembly? That's the point of it... can we change lenses that way or not?

Polina Luzenco - Contestar

Exactly. Can the actual lens be unscrewed from the mount or it glued / fixed?

contact -

The lens is heavily glued onto the assembly. It would be far easier to replace the entire assembly than trying to remove that glue.

the guy who wrote the guide apparently has never heard of pliers. it comes right out, but no idea what the threading is.
