Now, the bayonet screws.

Lift this side of the shroud.

This way, it can be removed.

To remove the black shroud easily, first turn the aperture ring to F22 and the focus ring to 0.3 meters.

Remove the bayonet and search for the small ball, here it was on its place.

Put the small ball in safe place for now.

The 2 cams  are identical, so we need to mark them and take a picture for the position  before removal, and save them apart with their own spacers. This only happens in 2 cams lenses.

Yes, I know, the picture was taken before I numbered them.

Remove them.

This is what is removed. Please save them apart, perhaps we'll have to rebuild the lens exactly as it was.

Now we can replace the small ball, and leave a bit of special grease with it.
