Rico pin

QuoteOriginally posted by LensScribe Quote
I'm looking to buy a PKR mount lens (with an A setting on the aperture ring), i.e. one that potentially has the pin of doom. Has anyone successfully removed the pin without losing the ability to change aperture in body?
It's not particularly difficult if you're willing to open the lens. Somewhere 'round here there was an illustrated thread on how to do it. Try:

If all else fails, simply "Dremel" the Ricoh-pin flush with the lens base.
