|Does anyone have experience with this cool lens? I've got one, and it's a beauty, but it's got some fungus traces around the edges of the front element and I'd like to clean them.
That's all I want to do - remove the front element, clean the edges, then put it back. I've managed to unscrew the ring holding it in place, but just as it gets close to coming free it jams up and stops turning. Naturally I don't want to try to force it or do any damage.
Worst case scenario I'll just leave it as-is, since the effect on the image of a 300mm is negligible. Still, it would be an easy job if I could only get the front element out.
