Canon AE-1 Program Lens Stuck
I know these aren't the most active of newsgroups, but perhaps
worth a try...
About a year (or was that two...) ago, my Korean made "Kalimar"
zoom lens became stuck on my Canon AE-1 Program. It had always
been difficult to get on (not off) since I bought it second-hand
a few years earlier. This last time though, upon removal I was
only able to rotate the lens ring some of the way before it became
stuck in a loose state where it wouldn't rotate back to the
"locked-in" position, or allow the lens to be removed.
So far I've tried undoing a few of the screws on the lens around the
comera end, but they didn't offer any improved access, and in final
desperation I tried brute force applied from various angles, but no
change resulted (except for an unfortunate dent). I had a look
through two service manuals on the web for the AE-1 Program, but
they didn't inspire any further ideas.
Luckily I had another AE-1 (non-program) which I've switched now
instead. But it's a frustrating way to loose a camera, so any
suggestions on how to bring the "Program" off the shelf and back
into service would be appreciated.
