Has anyone been able to disable SDM using the K-3?

I am trying to disable the SDM for a DA* 16-50....anyone successful in doing this using the debug mode in the K-3?

I always thought it was a crock that SDM could not be turned on and off via the menu.

It's been a while but I seem to remember K3 can't dump/write to the lens in debug menu. I didn't try doing the modification of the values in camera I just assume it doesn't work.

I tried. Got into debug but it wouldn't actually send the ROM to SD. I ended up using a k20 I gave to my dad.

Maybe someone near you has an older body you could borrow?

I didn't try with my K3, cause I have a K5 II and everyone said the K3 wouldn't work with it.

I tried with my K-3 about 3 months ago following the thread by Shodan. Was able to access debug menu, but just like others said, could not force read/write on the lenses EEPROM.

Same here. I also tried with K-3, but was not able to write onto the lense.

Yes, it would be so easy to do, too!
