Canon 50mm 1.8 Stuck on Camera Body
Plastic but not fantastic
July 31st, 2011
Earlier this week, I accidentally dropped my Canon nifty-fifty lens on the floor. Without inspecting it, I put it on the camera and was happy to see that it worked. And today I tried to take it off - only to find that it was stuck. Turns out that this is a quite common problem with this lens - the lens mount is made out of plastic and easily gets damaged, which can lead to this problem. However, since the mount of the camera is metal (update: actually it's plastic as well), you still have a fair shot if you turn the lens hard enough. After a long struggle, the lens finally came off, together with some small loose plastic pieces. Luckily, both the camera and the lens survived. Don't try this at home!
