Camera help

Good Day All,I am hoping that somewhere out there is someone who can help me. I have a Contax Carl Zeiss lens that has been sitting around for years. I was going to try and sell it on facebook if possible. So I was cleaning up the lens and I needed to remove the Filter/Skylight so as to provide a more detailed image of the lenses properties. It was difficult to remove and in my efforts the whole of the focusing ring of the lens was removed form it's housing. I can see that there are a number of pieces that need to be aligned properly to return it to it's nest. Well I tried and realised i should try no more. Is there anyone out there that can help me. Looking for shops to do this is difficult and also expensive. I don't mind paying for the repair here though if it can be done. Thanking you all in advance.Michael

If the lense filter is unable to be unscrewed from its mount this is something I experienced some years ago. Ever since I made sure that the filter had a brass screw mount. To overcome your problem may I suggest that you put it  in HOT water so that the metal expands and thus releases the corrosion. I would also suggest that you put it in hot water then pour in hotter water so that the glass does not crack. I hope this works for you.

Thank you Lacy 121. Nice of you to make an effort for me. The filter is off now. But I will bear it in mind for possible future occasions. Thank you again. Best Regards
