Thank you so much for all help. I would take that procedure to see if I can magically bring AF to live. I love everything about this lens.

Thank you for your comment as I thought the SDM can be disabled to get the screw focus like the DA* 50-135.

Cheers,
Hin

Thank you for your inputs. I am more then likely to re-sale with true info of non functioning AF and I hope to get back $100 or best offer. The current new one is under $500 in Adorama.

Hin

I forget to turn it back. Both modes will not have AF.

I will check on the firmware. My camera works perfectly with both 16-50, 50-135 and 60-250 all in DA* SDM. Will check, upgrade if it is not the latest and report back.

Thanks for your inputs.

I bought a lens on Ebay from a Japanese store on a copy of mint Pentax DA* 55 f/1.4. The AF motor is not functioning. I intended to return to seller and later got a partial refund. The lens goes without lens hood and almost look mint in cosmetics. The orginal price was $280 and refund was $150. So my cost was $130.

Upon using it in MF, I love what I get from the color, build, and bokeh that I love in Pentax lenses. I need help to see if it is fixable. I don‘t know if it is an SDM or the focus motor problem. How hard is it to fix it yourself? Anyone with experience and the know-how in fixing it. I saw an article with great forum members detailing how to fix it. I am not handy man and I don’t trust myself in opening lens. Please offer me comments.

I am thinking of re-selling with honest listing on non-functioning on auto focus and it works beatifully in MF. My eyesight is the problem that I need auto focus and I used to enjoy MF lenses and with age getting to my astimatism, I prefer to shoot AF if I can. Would putting it out for $100 for non-autofocus lens get interest?

f/2.8

I finally find the buyer for Tamron 28-75 f/2.8. This is a great lens and I have the hardest time to find the right buyer. The few pictures are some of my best memories. This zoom will go greatly with Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4.0 as a pair and they have worked really well for me.

Hin

I am motivated to sell this lens. It is a very good lens and I sell because of downsizing my Pentax gear to native zooms + few limited primes. And I don't intend to go FF on Pentax.

Super Takumar 135mm f/2.5 is reduced to $90 + shipping. Price is firm. It is shame that I never find a chance to try this lens. Just don't want to get attached. I want to get my 135mm to one lens with Tamron adaptall-2 as I don't use this focal length much.

My Super-Tak 135mm f/2.5 has 6 blades with a diamond in the DOF scale, I think it is the version 1. I should have 2 of the o riginal and genuine Pentax M42 to K adapter along with some third party ones. I can sell the genuine adapter for $25 to help with the sale -- if I found out that I only have 1 adapter left then I can't sell you my only copy. For K to M42 mount, I only recommend the genuine adapter, even the Kipon labelled adapter has issues.

Please reply me if you want the lens and I will confirm later today if I have the extra copy of adapter. I have not shot with the lens yet. I just have way too many lenses. I will attempt some test shots this weekend to help on my sale. If you decide to move on, please drop me a line and you can help me put a comment in my sale thread.

Thanks,
Hin

Price adjusted from $220 to $199 on the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, it has all the original and with box, hood and caps.

With lack of interest, I have withdraw the DA35 as I can still use it adapted nicely to other system.
