  1. Lens ring install on Samyang 8mm

    Question

    Hi,

    I can't seem to find the instructions on how to install the ring (F6209) on a Sony alpha mount Samyang 8mm f3.5. The NN store page refers to a post here, but I can't find it. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    We don't have a separate guide for this lens, use this as generic guide.

    You have to find the best focus distance. Tape the focus ring. Wrap the plastic insert around the focus ring just in front of the aperture ring. There is only one way to fit the plastic insert. Tape the plastic insert. Then loosen the outer ring opening to about 6mm, carefully in insert the lens into the outer ring. Loosen the outer ring a bit more if needed. Do not loosen too much. There us a sweet spot that the ring will insert smoothly. If you have the V2 lens that has a removable hood, it may be slightly difficult to install the outer ring.
