Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 aperture ring problem and repair

Today, 04:32 PM

Hello all,

 

today my new to me, recently bought second hand, 60mm lens began to misbehave. At wide apertures 2.4 or 2.8 it would switch to "P" i.e. the lens behaved like it was on "A".

 

I found here in forum some references to this type of failure and that I should send it to Fuji for repair. It is an electronic or mechanical issue, not software issue, so I told myself: what the hell, I am quite experienced with mechanical camera body repairs and MF lenses CLA, so I jumped right on it.

 

The bayonet ring goes off easily, but there is this flex ribbon circuit. Best is to disconnect it - there is a latch on the oposite side than where the ribbon goes out.

P1160610_1k.jpg

 

Under the bayonet, there is a large metal C ring, probably just a spacer. 

P1160614_1k.jpg

 

Be careful because in my sample there were also 2 small spacers. I really don't know why would anyone mount the bayonet spaced more one one side than on the other side... but I left them in there. (pictured below with one of the bayonet screws for scale, they are also in the picture above)

P1160613_.jpg

 

The second ring with the red-dot and serial number is held in place by 2 tiny screws.

 

Then comes the difficult part - the aperture ring itself.

 

There is a detent ball on a spring, be careful that you don't lose it. Work over a developing tray or something similar.

 

The aperture ring can be taken off in position at f22 or "A" - there is a cut out for the brushes. They can be gently bent back if distorted while removing the aperture ring (don't ask how I know it)

P1160608_1k.jpg

 

After this step I immediately understood why the aperture setting 2.4 and 2.8 wouldn't work. Take a look at the following picture:

P1160607_1k.jpg

 

The conductive "paths" of the aperture setting encoder are just a sticker, and it started to peel off and got out of the trace of the brushes. Simply on the 2 mentioned settings the sticker with the "paths" was no longer in the correct position where the brushes would contact it. This is what we are paying for. Very cheaply made internals IMHO.

 

I sticked it back in the correct place, pushed it really hard in hope that it will stay in place for a while. If I need to do it again, I will use some epoxy.

 

Getting the aperture ring back on is a whole new puzzle. The problem is the ball on a spring. I solved it by using a piece of aluminium can. Keep the can piece in place, don't move it or the ball wil fall off of the spring and the aperture ring will damage the spring (don't ask how I know this). As the aperture ring slides on, it pushes the spring and ball into the hole. There is just enough clearance for the aluminum can piece. Anything thicker wouldn't fit.

P1160611_1k.jpg

P1160612_1k.jpg

 

The rest is just "follow the steps in reverse order"

 

I hope this helps someone. I am sure I am not the only one with this problem.

Best thrift store finds? Share your big fish stories.

Today, 02:55 PM

I've been having a bit of a run of luck this past week with thrift-store finds, and figured it might be fun to collect everyone's big-fish stories: those random finds or runs of luck finding precious old gear for next to nothing.

 

So far in the past two days I've managed to find, in a single town, for less than $80 all-in...:

 

• Olympus OM-2n, black, in fairly minty condition with a Zuiko 50mm 1.8 (I've always coveted one of these babies)

• Tamron Adaptall 28mm f2.5, olympus mount

• Super Takumar 135mm f3.5

• Pentax k1000 with PK/M 50mm f1.7 SMC and a Pentax fixed-aperture zoom (can't remember which one)

• Pentax ME Super w. PK/M 50mm f1.7 SMC

• Soligor 28mm f2.8 in M42

• Some Tamron fixed-aperture zoom/macro with a PK/M mount (again, can't remember which focal range)

• Cokin p-series glass linear polarizer & hard grad filter

 

...and I still have 5+ thrift stores to check out in this town :)

 

Anyway, can't wait to hear about your greatest scores!

Old Bible and Rosary

Today, 02:30 PM

Posted by dpc in General

The rosary is 128 years old. One of my paternal ancestors must have obtained it while visiting Lourdes in France. "Lourdes" is inscribed on the back of the cross and the arms are decorated with lilies. The beads must be made of sandalwood. The rosary gave off a strong smell until quite recently. There is still a faint whiff of sandalwood when you take it from its leather case. The bible is well over a hundred years old, but I'm unsure precisely how old. The page with the printing date is missing. Ironically, the Bible is Protestant (KJV) while the rosary is obviously Catholic. There is a strong history of Catholicism on my father's side of the family and an equally strong history of Protestantism on my mother's (Orangemen - in previous times and times not so long ago, a lethal mix). I juxtapose them in the interests of ecumenism.

Oops - I have to drive along that road tomorrow

Today, 02:21 PM

Posted by GregWard in General

I'm in our house in the Cevennes at the moment and it's been very hot and very dry. As a result this was the view from our garden this afternoon. Ok - so I was using the 18-135 - so the fire wasn't that close. But I need to take my Daughter to her Grandparents tomorrow and we have to drive right past there. Mind you there have been five water bombers and a helicopter over it all afternoon. So it seems to be mostly out. Pretty spectacular but not really what you want to see from your own house.

Help! X-T1: Blue overcast with Auto WB

Today, 12:51 PM

Posted by petern in X-T1 and X-T10

I had already noticed a blue overcast (sorry if I am using the wrong wording) so I thought to check with a color card and compare in LR. The colors in both raw and jpeg were way off. Can be corrected of course, but I don't want to bring my colorchecker all the time.

 

Does anyone experience the same thing? Do you know where the problem may reside? LR or camera software or metering system? Can anyone point me in the right direction

 

Thanks!

 

Peter

x100s and windows 10 ?

Today, 12:48 PM

Hello ,

 

I just installed windows 10 this morning , i was runing 7 until now.

Since then i got a problem , windows 10 doesn't see my pictures on the card when i use USB cable to the camera.

If i take the card out and plug it to the PC , everything is normal.

X100S is recognised by windows 10 and shows on settings.

 

It is not a big problem but still makes me mad, lol

MF Assist Focus Peak Highlighting not working in X-E1

Today, 12:42 PM

Title says it all. MF Assist and Focus Peak Highlighting stopped working on my X-E1.

Anyone else have this issue? For a while, I was noticing that pushing the wheel (which is what you do to engage focus assist on X-E1) was *not* engaging MF Assist. Usually, if I moved the focus point and tried again, it would start working again.

Last night I was out using adapted lenses noticed that I wasn't getting Peak Highlighting. I chalked it up to a low battery or something. This morning, on a fully-charged battery, I'm still not getting Highlighting and pushing the wheel does nothing whatsoever.

Extremely frustrated and bummed. I'm now using mostly adapted glass, so this is a crucial function.

I've not heard good things about Fuji New Jersey, and this is my only camera body, so I'd like to hold off on sending it in anywhere if possible. I got it from a friend who got it from Amazon, so I do have a warranty, I just need to check if it's still valid.

Uhhh... help?

Soligor 105mm f2.8

Today, 12:33 PM

Posted by demoz in Adapted Lens Forum

Got this Soligor 105mm f2.8 in M42 off the bay recently. I am quite pleased with the lens. Its well made, compact and produces contrasty and reasonably sharp images as from f2.8:

 

X2E00218rw1.jpg

 

The bokeh seems rather pleasant:

 

X2E00318rw.jpg

All shot at f2.8. I should receive M42 macro rings by the weekend, will keep you posted.

90mm owners

Today, 12:12 PM

Mine arrived today courtesy of Amazon UK.

At £630, why not and I've been without something fast & longer for too long.

Anyway, pretty sure it's not right.

On or off camera with camera switched off, tip it forward or backwards and it makes a clonking noise.

Switch camera on, it doesn't happen.

Imagine the lens is a tube.

Inside is another tube that's shorter.

Tip the lens forward and it's like something inside moves forward and 'clonks'.

Never come across anything like this with any Fuji lens and I've had or got all the primes except the 27.

So 90 OWNERS, tell me mines a lemon so I can get it replaced?!
