Declicking Olympus OM Lens - how to remove ring?
  • Hi all,

    My first post on this forum - recently it kept popping up whilst researching legacy lenses for m43 so I figured there may be a few experts in here who could help me out.

    I'd like to declick my OM primes (28 and 50) and whilst the procedure looks straightforward enough I'm having a problem at the first hurdle: taking the ring off. I've tried using a mini flat-headed screwdriver and pushing into the engraved lettering; I've tried pushing down on alternate sides and then around the ring; I've even put on some rubber gloves to get some purchase, but it won't budge.

    Does anyone have any other tips that may help?
