Is it at all possible to get replacement flanges for older Nikon AF lenses that still have the worm drive (AF rather than AF-s)? I picked up a job lot of lenses that includes a 28-100mm G in nice condition except that the flanges are mostly broken - there's a small bit of one and a really tiny bit of another, the rest are gone. It still works if you hold it in place so I'd really like to get it fixed.
The problem is that all of the replacement flanges on offer on eBay are for AF-s lenses - they don't have the hole for the worm drive and presumably there are other differences. I'm very tempted to try to make the flanges from epoxy glue, but I'd really hate to rely on that sort of bodge holding together forever.
Anyone know if there's a way to get hold of them - do Nikon still do spares for lenses that old?
