How do you do it? AEJ I think.

Seems it is totally off, can't get to infinity.

Don't have a clue how that happened. Shocked Confused

If it's the same as the 50mm then there's three screws under the rubber grip that need to be loosened (don't remove them) to allow the focus ring to rotate.

No it is not, tried that.

I think it is similar to 25/2.8, looked a youtbe vide. You have to remove the name plate first. But I think it is glued and can't get it turning. Also the adjustment looks very tricky.

irritating timelapse effect

edit: actually it is the whole front element group that comes off. I can't figure out if the back element somehow locks the front element too?
