This Is How We Do It – Fixing Nikkor 18-70mm Focus Ring

So when repairs would cost more than the lens itself since apparently even most trusty places have no idea what they’re doing or simply want to charge you out the ass in our economy and when parts are nowhere to be found online, what do you do? You take matters into your own hands with help of styrene and superglue.

Not quite the final product, but it does work well. Rough on the eyes? Perhaps, but once again nothing some EVA/craft foam and more glue couldn’t fix. And a final note, I did have to sand the plastic casing down a bit to avoid binding the new focus, ummm, “ring.”
