DIY SDM repair!

Hi gents,

yet another successfull story with the SDM.

Yesterday tried to use the 50-135 on kind of a theatre event where my son was performing and of course it didn't work. Otherwise I wouldn't be writing here, right? :) Didn't know what to do... enjoy his performance, or to be angry at everything in the world.

Anyway, got home, and started reading around. I bought my lens somewhere in 2011 from a forum member and I made a good deal. The lens also came with extended warranty ( total 7 years warranty ). But as you can see I'm in Europe and the warranty can be served either in US of Canada... Still there was a way out.

I was far away from thinking to open the lens as simply do not have the time and the accuracy ( 2 kids around, dog... etc... ).

All the time I was hearing the motor, so thought indeed that it might be stuck somehow. Then reading carefully some people were suggesting a screwdrive body etc... well don't have that handy, but this morning as a last resort decided to use, well, normal screw and my hand as the motor :)

After 2 or 3 full cycles of "auto" manual focusing using the screw, the lens got back to life!

So another successful story, and a nother lucky owner of SDM...

Some people say, Miracles happen around Christmas, right? :)

Cheers,
Tiho

Even in Japanaised English, this would mean that the content of the previous update is included here. The only thing which this firmware includes, that's the GPS support.

Hi guys, what to say, wonderful T-Shirts. However a bit expensive for some people, especially when you calculate the price together with the shipment. that goes to 37 USD for a T-Shirt. I guess it would have been a great idea to get some extension of the membership ( for example Marketplace access / Reputation points or whatsoever ). I believe this is fair enough. Otherwise the idea is good, but expensive...

Cheers,
Tiho

FA 35mm f/2.0 AL...used market?
Posted By tichomir

The FA 35/2.0 is a way better than the DA 35/2.4. Personally I got it for about 350 USD shipped and pretty happy with it... Now it somehow overlaps with the DA 35/2.8 which I own, but both of them are having it's own charm and specifics. I would even state that the FA 35/2.0 the one I use more than the Limited one, both on K5.

Cheers,
Tiho

Asking Price
410 USD + PayPal fees if any (Gift Option). Price is negotiable

Item Description
It's time to let it go as the K5 made it redundant.

For sale here is a Pentax K-x KIT (18-55mm). The camera as the lens are in a Excellent condition and very well preserved. There is only a small scratch on the shiny border which I believe was caused by one of the lens hoods which was staying close to the camera. The camera is a bit more than 1 year old, bought on 17.12.2009. Current shutter count is around 10 000. If it's sold withing the CZ it will also have a warranty till 17.12.2011.

The package contains the following:

1. Pentax K-x Body
2. Pentax SMC D-AL 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 - Lens is in excellent condition as well. No dust, fungus or oil. No scratches.
3. Box + All papers and CDs
4. A Brand new strap ( exchanged it with the K5 one, so you will get the new one)
5. Data cable is also included.

Sorry batteries are not included as I have decided to keep them for the K5 Grip.

If you have any question or you need more photos please contact me via pm.

The camera will be packaged very carefully. Thanks for looking!

The lens is in a very good shape. The body is excellent ( made in Japan ). There is no fungus, haze or scratches. The coating is also in excellent state. I thought there is some mark on the coating, but after careful cleaning it happened there is nothing. No oil on the blades. There is some really small particle inside the lens ( I believe it's dust ), but it's not affecting the image quality at all.
