I don't know if you have solved that problem of taking the BOWER BODY MOUNT from your lens. If not, than its very simple. There is a small screw on that adapter, remove it, take a safety pin, put it inside that hole, there will be like a small golden color spring in there, move that to the opposite direction and remove the adapter from the lens and VIOLA..... problem solved.

If you're trying to remove the adapter from the lens, use a K mount rear cap so you can get hold of it. I've removed adapters that were Glued on this way.

Great idea, thanks
