Help me take my knife to the 55-200 I wanna cut it
Jun 8, 2014

I do not like the smell of rubber.  Some rubbers are offensive to me, like an allergy.  All my Fuji lenses are without rubber.  They are hard plastic or metal.  (35, 27, 18, 18-55)  The 55-200 has a rubber part that I believe if I cut it or pull it off it will present hard plastic or metal underneath.

I've done this to some tripods.  The legs are rubber coated and when cut, they present metal or hard plastic which i like.

What will happen with the 55-200?  Will the thin rubber piece hide a hard plastic or metal?  Can I try pulling it off instead of cutting it?
