    plastic ring broke off my 150mm Hassy CF lens

    There is a plastic ring that goes around the barrel right at the mounting flange, It was cracked when I got it and not it is seriously broken, I could super glue the whole thing together, but that seem like a bit of a hack job, So, what is the function of the ring....dust guard? If it is just to make it look pretty, I'll do without.

    Thanks -- Mark

    The ring serves to keep the rubber in place. You can use the lens without.
    It is of the clip-on type, and because it is under tension a bit, is known to crack.
    Hasselblad parts are more expensive than they should be, so/but it is relatively cheap to replace.

    I thought it was an engineering polymer.

    Yes, I believe the terms are interchangeable, but certainly not PLASTIC.

    Speaking as a mechanical engineer, I can see exactly why it failed .... less than great plastic part design and manufacturing. I suppose I should cut them some slack since they don't do too many plastic parts.

    Seriously, it sounds like it not replacing it shouldn't be a problem......thank!

    Ooo, aaa!

    You all paid extra for that membership card, i see.

    Plastic, yes.
    Hasselblads are full of it.

    Well... let's say that there is plastic in Hasselblads.
    This ring wasn't the brightest idea. It works long and well enough though.

    Volvos have plastic parts too... and it never stopped them from being considered a decent car.
