Aperture Ring

Aperture Ring

Simply unscrew the aperture ring -- while looking at the front element unscrew counter clockwise. If it binds up for any reason do not force it. Try to remove it by turning it clockwise and out through the rear of the lens. The aperture blades will move--but they are held in place by a 1/8" hardened steel pin...Its not going to break unless you really do something dumb.
