I'm having a problem with my 180mm AIs lens. I bought a gear ring from Jerry at JBK cinequipt
Unfortunately, I didn't check before ordering if it's possible to remove the sunshade of the 180mm Nikon lens, since it has a slightly larger diameter than the focus ring, so that the gear ring won't slip over it. There is a tiny screw under the sunshade, which is only accessible when turning the sunshade to a certain position, but I doubt that it loosens the sunshade.
Anybody with some experience with this lens?
