intro and 500se question

Postby Dean G » Tue Jan 16, 2018 3:38 pm

Hi All,
I am a longtime user of Ricoh cameras starting with my first digital, the RDC-5000..Then the original GX, GX8, GX200, GRD mkI,(a lot of ancient history) and more recently GR II. All I have now is a Ricoh 500se which I've kept for rugged weather etc. One of my favorite Ricohs was the GX8 and the 500 se contains the basics of a GX8 under it's ruggedized shell.

There is one problem with mine, namely the glass filter sealing the lens housing. It has some marrs and scuffs I can't clean off and consequently produces a lot of glare in certain light and some spotting in the sky like here where I've semi successfully cleaned them up.

I can't figure out how to remove the glass from the fron of the camera to either replace it or just leave it off. If, by chance someone here has done this or would know how I would appreciate the info.
