How to Remove a Stuck Canon 50mm Lens | Tina Case Photography
Ok, so you purchased a Canon nifty fifty for a double fifty dollars. While it is a spectacular lens for a cra-cra-CRAZY low price, it has a reputation for getting 'stuck'. Uh-oh. Yup. Just Google "Canon 50mm stuck lens" and you'll see loads of people with this issue.
While you might want to blame the user (we did) it turns out it is a manufacturer issue due to come cheap plastic parts. But for $100 bucks -WELLL, I figured I'd save the trouble and money of sending it to a shop and remove it myself. I read several posts about how to do it, and watched the one or two videos that show you how. I thought I'd post my own as the videos online were not overly clear. Maybe mine isn't either but hey, I had to show my daughters my technical DIY. NOTE: I am NOT responsible if you damage your camera or lens, this is fully your decision. But if you feel you can tackle this and have a good technical know-how, then why not DIY?
If you do this carefully you can preserve the integrity of your camera body and just get another cheap lens knowing it may get stuck again.
I was able to put on a different lens and all works well, camera body was saved! My advice is to thoroughly read and review how to do it, have all your tools and gut rag ready, then good luck!
