Fish-eye question

I just received mine and was reading the instructions. It mentions to change aperture rings, to take the two pieces apart. How do you get them apart? I tried twisting but not budging.

Keith,

Mine was REALLY tight and I also struggled to get it loose. I didn't give up and it finally loosened. It has been fine ever since, and I simply screw it on till it stops without trying to tighten it alot.

Thanks, I'll try again. I didn't try to twist to hard, afraid to damage it.

Sorry about this. We found this problem out three days into shipping. One of our assembly staff did not realize his own strength and was tightening the front and back optical groups with way too much vigor. We went back to all the stock we had not shipped and loosened them up but some got shipped this way.

What has seemed to work for those that have called with this problem is, with the Fisheye Optic not mounted in your Composer, put a rubber band around each end and use that to get your traction to unscrew the front optical group from the back.

After this first loosening, tighten gingerly and you should not have any more problems with this in the future.

Sorry for the hassle.
