and now it's stuck on my damn lens and won't come off. Anyone have any advice on getting this thing off without destroying my lens?

Is there a twist ring connection on your adapter? I have one where the twist ring rotates counterclockwise to release.

It has the ring and the ring won't budge.

Put a canon back cap on the adapter and use that to twist it off.

I'll try that. Just ordered a cap.

Some eos adapters I've seen need to have the lens stopped down all the way. I don't know if it's the case, but have you tried it?

I've tried it every which way. This bastard ain't moving.
