Body and lens have to be cocked to take them apart. It is the same when putting lens and body together, both have to be cocked. If the body is not cocked, do so by turning the wind crank/wind knob. If the lens is for some reason (user error) not cocked, do so by turning the slotted shaft in the lens bayonett with a coin until it is cocked. All in all, this is not an issue. Really.
