SMC Tak 35/3.5 stuck in "Auto" position ...

Bonjour,

I just acquired a SMC Tak 35/3.5 in great condition other than the "Auto/Man" switch is stuck in the "Auto" position ... cannot move switch to "Man" position.

Anyone have an idea or a trick which could help me out ... I could super-glue the pin to force a "Man" function, but I would prefer not to go that way.

Thanks in advance, J

Yep...just fit a rear cap or camera body to the lens and all is well.
