    Hi Jim,

    I just got a 35-70 f2.8 and I'm interested in your modified version.
    Do you still have the photos somewhere?
    Is this difficult piece to disarm? Or actually I should ask if it is difficult to arm after cleaning & modifying it?

    Many thanks in advance

    Recently acquired from ebay, Pentax ES II, cosmetically and optically like new EXCEPT that Viewfinder blind is locked shut, and nothing I do (shutter-speed dial, battery-test button, exposure-compensation-dial, hitting it, praying) has any effect. I COULD just gestimate the distance frame bygolly, and shoot, and with that lovely Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 1.8/55, it would probably come out with a good photograph, ... but with such a beautiful TTL, it seems a shame.

    H E L L P !!!

    I do like the 40-80 but I am not sure I am operating it correctly. It doesn't seem to turn all the way to the macro position on the focal length ring stopping just short of 80. Also the macro seems to show up on the 40 position but not the 80 position. What am I doing wrong? I have tried it with extension tubes and I like the clarity when using the tubes. I also realize that I did buy the cheapest tubes I could have found anywhere off eBay(shrug) but if I treat them with great care they should work for awhile till I can afford better ones. If there is a site somewhere that I could download instructions on the lens or someone else to ask please let me know. Thanks for a good deal, Alan Wilson.
