This is the Elmarit 180mm, first version.

It is a two cam lens.

First, turn the aperture ring until the aperture lever is in front the slot.

And unscrew the bayonet.

It is easy to lift the bayonet and black shroud together.

With the new Leitax mount model, you can reuse the black tube to avoid flares, take a look here.

Check if the small bearing ball is in its place, better to save it in a secure place for now

As the two cams are identical, we have to mark them  to avoid confusions, I always mark the one next to the bearing ball as #1.
And the other one is #2
Now remove the cams and the shims that may be under them.

So we can save them separately with their own shims and screws.

Now reinstall the bearing ball, but put first a bit of special grease under it.
The Tube-Shroud is ready , glued to the Leitax mount.

And we can install the new Leitax bayonet, this instructions are valid  for Pentax, Nikon, Sigma and Sony, like the one in the picture.
We will reuse the original screws.

Our Sony camera is ready to take pictures with this excellent Elmarit.
