    I just got myself a Zeiss Jena Sonnar 85mm f2.0. Optics is pretty clean. Aperture turn smoothly but the focusing is still as can be. I can unscrew the optical portion of the lens and remove this from the focusing section. I was hoping that I can dismantle and clean the part and maybe regrease it but don't have a clue where to start. Anyone here knows if there are any illustrated guide on how to dismantle the focusing section of this lens?

    Greatly appreciate any help

    Regards
