Meanwhile the shutter remains open and a large flat pin on the bottom right (looking into the body) protrudes....
And looking through my other Blad stuff testing it out...my 50mm does not open up: changing apertures on the barrel has no effect. Time for some professional help...

BradleyK seems to be having a bad decade. Can someone help him with his Nikon.

Yes, I know that would not be in the spirit of this thread, but he needs some help now.
