Jammed Filter
« on: April 13, 2013, 11:57:56 AM »
Hi all
I unfortunately dropped a lense or of my bag today onto the floor.
Unfortunately it was a bad choice.
It was a 70-200mm is II so it was a Big Bang. The lens looks intact but the UV filter is jammed and dented.
I've tried using a washing up glove to get grip and putting it in a freezer.
It didn't budge a millimetre .
Anyone got a suggest as to what to try next
Kind Regards
Fergal
