Rokinon aperture blades

Rokinon 28mm f-2.8 - aperture assembly and blades

I bought a new lens the other day. Unfortunately, the aperture didn't work. So I decided to take it apart and see what I could do to fix it. This is the result. One of the blades was missing a pin, and while I was trying to reassemble it, two more fell off.

Egypt, Day 6

In the morning we went to the Citadel of Saladin and visited the Mosque of Mohamed Ali, also known as the Alabaster Mosque.

Then to Coptic Cairo for the Hanging Church, and then Khan El-Kalili.
