I changed my lens cup and I think it got caught up. Now I am unable to unlock it or lock it to get it out. Has this happened to anyone before? How do I get it out? I want to use my fisheye and I can't Waaaah! ;)
I am here in Portland OR, can someone help me?

Yep....lenses sometimes wedge up, but don't panic !

You have to lightly push down on the three release points and give a gentle twist, when you go too far they wedge up.

If you grab the optic from the rear, twisting in the correct direction, it will release.....using a rubberized helper to give you some grip is the key .

Please be careful to not damage the optics surface ....and if this doesn't work....well....take a deep breath before looking for a big hammer :0 !
