    Thanks so much for converting my DA*300 to screw drive. So glad not to have to worry about the SDM failing at the worst possible time. The lens is working great!

    hi there! Happy new year once again

    Look I need your help, you are the best to ask this question I think

    I've posted the original thread here, just nobody answered yet and I'm little bit nervous, can you please read this, your opinion would be valuable for me

    I just have received brand new 50-135 lens

    "Guys, I've just received the lens. Haven't taken any pictures yet, but I have one question about a focus ring. When I start to rotate the ring either way, focus meter starts to rotate with it slightly late, with a little gap between rotations. Veery little gap somewhere 0.1mm, Something like neutral position which I can not say about zoom ring. Is this ok with your copies? Do I have to start worry about it or it's normal?"

    I just would like to compare it to others, maybe I'm warring too much about it and it is like it should be?

    Good morning UncleV,

    i have just picked up a FA77 from PF, but the rear element has haze. Do you think it can be cleaned ? any suggestion ?

    Instead of sending it back to the seller in Canada, hope i can find someone to clean it.

    Happy shooting

    Congratulations on winning the compact camera photo contest! Superb photo.The symmetrical composition enhances the image greatly. Well seen.

    The contest mechanics are fine as is. I agree with you about simplicity. The present format has funtioned well for 100+ contests. Don't want to read a book to enter a photo contest.

    I wrote to you earlier about activating the screw drive in my DA* 300mm lens.
    Ricoh has finally decided to replace the lens, so the service will not be needed at this time.
    I appreciate the fact that you are offering this service to us forum members.
    Have a good day and pass it on.

    My 16-50 just arrived (one-day delay thanks to a lazy postal carrier...) and works brilliantly! Thanks! If/when my 50-135 goes south again I'll probably have it converted too.

    Just received my DA50-135, and tried on my K-5 and K-3. Both work perfectly. Thank you very much
