    Default Weird Lens Problem

    So, fortunately this is a really cheap Vivitar lens, but I have only used this lens one time.....just to test it out after buying it. Since then it has been stored in my photography cabinet...untouched for about 6 months. I pulled it out today to see if I could manage to get any decent pictures with it, and when I took off the back cap, I saw this!!!

    broken lens

    This looks like a data cable...but it's all twisted...I can't even just wrap it around the round interior of the lens because it would fold if I tried. Anyone have any clue how to fix this....not going to take it in, it's a really cheap lens...not worth the repair price. LOL

    Weird! You have a mobius strip of data cable in your lens!

    There is no place to tuck it in? That's odd.
