Sony PMW-F3 PL mount removal

After having my own extreme difficulties removing the Sony PL Mount from the PMW-F3 (and not feeling good about having to tell people it was me doing it wrong) I thought an illustration showing exactly how to do it would be a good idea. It also would have been well appreciated in the user manual but is not located in it at all.

Some caution on those “ears” located on the front of the Sony PL mount (three of them) and the ones on the rear ring (two of them) as they are made from plastic and can easily be broken off if you are thinking of tapping them or using excessive force.

I hope this helps many others out there who ran into difficulties like I did.
