Canon FD 85/1.8 lens disassembly help?
Nov 2, 2012

Hi all,

I decided to spring for the spanning wrench to get at the fungus in this lens I have.

I looked up all the instruction I could find and anticipated further retaining rings that required either more spanning wrench work or a philips head screwdriver to get at the element.

However, once I got the vanity ring off, I am confronted by this:

It's held on by MAGIC!

There are no further rings and the only screws I can see are behind this front element and inaccessible.

The only schematic I can find of this lens online is this:

I need to get to the 2nd and 3rd element from the front.

I need to get to the second and third element from the front to clean fungus. Does anyone have any idea how I should proceed?

This question has not been answered yet.
