|How do you get it back? It is easy to get the full stop ball and spring but the two should be fitted at the same time. I think one could press the ball down with a very thin piece of steel or some other material from inside the control ring?
Got this lens with some other repair stuff. It was assembled somewhat wrong and focus didn't go closer that 0,7 instead of the 0,55 that it should. Fun assembly task. All kinds of small tricks and lots of metal. Here is the lens:
Here sample picture. It really focuses right now. Exactly 1 meter distance and wide open.
By the way, don't try to use these Fujinon-lenses with adapter. They just don't fit.
