Can anybody tell me how to disassemble this lens? I need to clean it's front lens from the inside.

Is there any website that has schematics of this lens?

because no one seemed to be able to help me with my problem i was left to my own devices and i was able to figure out what to do to gain access to inner side of lens front element. And i was able to fix it.

i'll write what to do , so it might help someone else in the future

so here it goes:

there are 4 sets of screws on this lens:
1. screws on the mount - when you take them out you can remove the mount and aperture ring (be careful not to lose a ball bearing that is inside the aperture ring)
2. set of screws is on the barrel -those i didn't touch - i believe you get access to aperture blades
3. set is on top of the lens - i believe is for removing glass from the top element - but no use for my purpose
and finally 4. set is under the rubber grip that you need to remove first



when you remove the grip you'll find 2 pairs of screws



unscrew all 4 screws (be careful not to lose them and the 2 small metal plates that will come loose)

then unscrew the front element



now you can clean inside of the front element, and also inner element

now you have to reassemble the lens



first set the two small metal plates into the grooves on both sides of the zoom barrel and position the lens so that those grooves are to the left and to the right so that the plates don't fall off when screwing back the top element of the lens

now screw back on the top element and as it slowly comes into it's place it will start to push two metal plates into position to screw 4 screws back on


now put the rubber grip back on and your lens is ready to use

Well done, Wolverine.

I'd suggest that this sort of thread become a sticky, collecting these
photo-essays of instruction into one place. Great information here,
for regulars and newcomers.

Just wanted to post to say thanks, this was really useful for me!
I've had this lense collecting (more) dust, but now it's clean inside and out it's working a treat!

You ended up doing it the hard way.

The flash-plate ring unscrews, then the front lens seat-ring unscrews and the front lens can be removed for cleaning or whatever.

The way you did it you exposed the internal elements to dust from a multitude of entry points.

@tesselator
i had to clean both frontlens from the inside and also moving glass element inside the lens, so this way i got better access to it


@attila - looking at your signature with Olympus OM lenses i see listed 55mm 3.5 macro...there is Olympus 50mm 3.5 macro ... did you make an error or is it some other manufacturer

But it doesn't work for me as the front lens might be an assembly as I've cleaned the inner and outer lens (of the front lens that unscrews) but can still see a haze, which would suggest there are two elements that need to be seperated (of the front lens that unscrews).

Can anyone help I am a complete newbie, I have this lens but the blades are stuck open and I need to go in from the mount end I'm guessing. If I move the 3 screws on the mount I don't seem to go in far enough, do I need to remove the 3 smaller screws an inch or so down the barrel? I really don't want to make things impossible to put back together. Any ideas please.
Update: Ok no help needed think I was being a little silly, removed mount, unscrewed lens and could see the blades. Feel quite silly Embarassed for asking now!
