    Good luck with your lens/lense.

    I ain't smart enough to be no word nerd and when you talk about peopling this here forum I get all confused. Now when Caliban wanted to people that island place I thought that meant he wanted to get jiggy with Prospero's daughter. That's the only place I seen that thing word used like a do something word before.

    I'm not really all that up on small format lenses, but I think it might be a bad idea to take apart a zoomer, without knowing for sure how it is put together. Spacing and all that. On the other hand, somebody who really knows is bound to pop by soon.

    NO.

    Stike around here too.

    All seriousness aside, you would do well to have the lens serviced. Try KEH.com for servicing. I hear good things about their work.

    Knowing how to spell is not important. We know this because if knowing how to spell was important, God would not have put Control-L on the keyboard.

    What kind of "light gathering" would be achieved from a flat front element?

    My thinking is that there is a filter on the front. Could be wrong - but....
    I have a 55m f/3.5 Micro-Nikkor that appears to have a flat front element - of course it might not be perfectly flat, but I'm not going to run my finger across it to check. Just because the front surface is flat, doesn't mean the lens element is flat - it is entirely possible to have a plano-convex or plano-concave lens with the curved surface facing in and the flat surface facing out.

    No, it's not really flat. It is curved. I should have used better terminology. It is the front element of the lense/lens.

    To the person who recommended KEH...thanks, now I am on the right path.
