Recently acquired a Leitz Xenon 50mm f/1.5
Leitz's first attempt at a super fast lens
Anyone know how to open one up?
It's quite dirty inside on the internal elements, but do not know how to open her up.
I can take the back mount off by the 3 screws on the base around the mount, and there are 7 more screws on the body. One large near the focus knob (But not deep, just large head)
Another large one and 2 small ones on the front rind (Loosens aperture ring from apertures inside)
And 3 more screws on the center ring on the lens.
I need to reach the center elements to clean.
All i need to do... I guess if you have an newer Leitz Summarit 50mm f/1.5 it should be similar. It's almost the same except for a few minor changes.
