I have a Micro-Nikkor 55 mm 1:2.8 lens. The aperture appears to be stuck. Is it worth trying to repair the lens? Are there any good guides for disassembling the lens?

Have you contacted Nikon? They may have a solution that you can do yourself. – Evan Pak May 24 '13 at 1:56
Take to repair shop for evaluation/repair. – Wing Tang Wong May 24 '13 at 17:09

After doing a search, I have found a useful disassembly guide for the lens. However I discourage you from fixing it yourself as dust or fungi spores could be introduced onto the lenses.
