I have no SDM lenses but this is very interesting. Can someone who's performed the procedure confirm if it works?

OMG!

Somebody with a K10d or k-7 should set up a business to convert SDM's to screw drives!
I may do it, but it is no easy from France...

This is so useful. Thank you for your contribution. There will be a larger respnse if this is posted in the lens discussion forum. I do have a question though. What do you mean by "change c0 by 80 in the colonn 03?"
You need to use notepad+ to view the .lens file as line and colunn

I hope you do not ask me to make a youtube video to prouve it ..?

^-^

Anyway, I do not achieve to find yet, the code for my 60-250mm, and I am still waiting for one of my friend to let me try with his 50-135mm.
I will try later with a 200mm DA or a 300mm DA
