    Have an issue. I was hurredly taking some snaps of a setting sun, I started removing the lens and fired the shutter by accident. Now the lens is stuck. very stuck. it's turned about 1/2 inch. The body is now cocked and will not fire (the flaps are open, mirror is up, though however winder is wound too. I've tried the screwdriver trick, the little screw winds the quarter turn, then won't turn any more (it locks) then I try and remove the lens and the screw just clicks back to original position. I've exhausted trying as I've started wearing the screw down. Such a bad time for this camera to jam up!

    I strongly suggest that instead of risking more damage, you send it out for repair.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Sounds like the timing got knocked out of sync. I second the notion that it needs to go see a camera doctor.

    the lens is now off the body, I gave it another try this morning, I held the lens release button and 'locked the lens' back into position, held the screwdriver in the screw and gently but sternly then removed the lens. the camera body is fine and accepts lenses and seems to fire normally now with other lens but the 80mm now seems to be jammed in the 'fired' position. I haven't tried to do anything to the lens because I seem to remember reading somewhere that lenses were an entirely different ballpark and were complicated to fix or something? The slot that the turning key goes into is jammed slightly counter-clockwise of the cocked position.

    The key has been turned anti clockwise and the latch has engaged. Try and push the latch out towards the edge of the lens and the key should become unjammed so that you may then re-cock it. Dont force anything or it could break and some parts are no longer available.
