I like the K-01 but the screen is difficult in sunlight so I gave up on mine and sold it on. The Yellow models hold value well so it's a sort of investment

Changing mount on Sigma 150-500mm or 50-500mm HSM Lens

I wondered if that flange distance is allowed for in the mount, to avoid having to change the lens body length.

I'm aware of the official Sigma conversion service. I'm referring to DIY conversion of older lenses.

Looking at the available lenses that I want (HSM Pentax Mount) there seems to be a lot of Sigma SA mount versions at a lower price. Probably more SA mount lenses with less wear and tear too.

Sorry if this has been answered numerous times before.

I've seen YouTube videos about changing Sigma SA mount to Canon EF mount on a Sigma 150-500mm HSM Lens. I'm wondering if I could swap the mount on a Sigma SA lens to a Pentax K mount for either a 50-500mm or 150-500mm lens.

I have the original Bigma and love it dearly and I have recently bought a sightly tired 150-500mm HSM lens, just wondering if I could buy a cheap but better condition SA mount of the HSM lens and swap mounts without needing to solder anything. There seems to be a lot of SA mount lenses available for about 100 less than the Canon/Nikon/Pentax price. I also shoot m4/3 so an Olympus 4/3 mount is also an option.


Two other ideas spring to mind. Do I need to have the same model of lens? or could I use a teleconverter as the doner lens mount and convert between KAF and a Nikon/Canon Lens.

Finally, I need to get the recently purchased 150-500mm serviced/cleaned. Can I buy a "new" KAF mount from Sigma for a DIY approach?

A new winder can be had for about 40 / $50 - get one and see if you can get someone to 3D model/print one ;-)

I've had a few Q10's and one Q, the Q was lovely but I like to get the wider angle shots.

I had two yellow q7's but sold one but would like a more subdued colour Q7 or QS1 to have one with zooms and one with prime attached.

Any idea where to get replacement plastic cap for the "bumper". I've got an LX to put up for sale and the plastic on the side nearest the timer DOF lever is worn out. I've just fitted new foam for the mirror (Jon Goodman kit) but everything else seems fine.

Jessops and larger Boots stores. I'm not sure if Asda still do film, Metrocentre store used to but then it was sending off to somewhere else. Lots of independent places still do but Google is the way!

Why not a Samyang 14mm or 24mm. It's not like you need autofocus for sunrises and sunsets. ;-)

The 08 lens is superb, I love my Q7 with all of the telephoto lenses and the 8.5mm prime. Next best thing, a K1 with an UWA.


P.S. Please don't type in all capitals.

If you want to sell the QS1 let me know ;-)
