Fix for a dropped Canon EF 50mm 1.8f19 Nov 2012
In my latest trip, during a long exposure shooting, a very nasty wind dropped my 60D to the ground. The damage was… hard to grasp1 (as you may imagine):
- The camera got scratched2 on the front.
- The lens hood, imploded.
- The lens, exploded.
So, after I got home I did what every tinkerer has the obligation to do: Tried to fix the lens myself.
After googling for a bit, I found Dave’s blog, linking to a very handy file from Yosuke Bando that shows how to disassemble the lens.
The file is mirrored here.
