Safe to remove end piece/cover from Nikkor 80-200 ais f 4.5?
4 months ago

Hi! I recently bought a Nikkor 80-200 ais f 4.5 with the peculiar grey rectangular cover at the end of the lense (se the link, scroll down to it) due to its superior sharpness.

I bought it for use with the Sony A7. The problem seems to be that this rectangular cover causes heavy vignetting (might have guess but I got it cheap).

My question is: is it safe to remove this rectangular cover? There are som small screws on the lens mount, are these the ones holding this cover? Or should I just leave it?

Thanks in advance!
