If the rings didn't turn on the 15-45 would it still work as a 15mm prime?

Does the lens move out when powering up the camera? I get error messages on my XF10 if I forget to take of the clip-on lens cap.

Yes but I can't remember if it extends by itself. I am fairly sure it does, but its been a while.

That could be be a problem for your little project then. Any obstruction to necessary movements - be it focus or extension - will lead to malfunction. At least try with tape before glue.

I find your idea not bad per se, but all irreversible modifications leave me a bit unwell. It does have a destructive touch to it.
