    This is not a big deal. But has anyone had any luck removing their zoom gears from their lenses? Or has any tips how to? My fingers are starting to hurt when I shoot topside.

    Usually you can pull them right off. They're just held by o-ring tension. Be careful with some lenses, though, as if they're tight they can sometimes pull off the rubber adjustment ring on the lens with the gear (Tokina 10-17 for instance)

    Ever have a lens repaired? I have a Nikon 60mm with the rubber cover that will not stay in place?

    Yes, Tokina fixed mine for a very reasonable charge. I din’t know what Nikon charges.
