If you still read this on 2018, left screw turned ccw around 60 degrees worked for me, spot on and did not affect AF..I was having the FF issue with all manual lens..

You should grey card your camera before anything..AF depends on proper contrast and ambient lighting..

I think its because of personal credit. As milleniums and young generational are getting more self employed, its getting harder to adquire a 2 year plan. The companies are now stricter than ever to this. Also its almost impossible now to unlock current phones to other carriers, undermining the options of changing companies before your contract is up. A lot of people used to contract buy a premium, unlock it and sell for 2 times more, then use a cheap phone for the remaining contract time..Times are changing.

Dal 50 -200 WR inside group dirty
Posted By Jeff Lopez

The ring that holds the front group indeed screws out.
There are 3 shims, keep that in order.
There is a matte circular paper around the middle lens, underneath that are 3 screws.
Unscrew them, and put the lens on your palms, tap it at the back, and the middle group will pop out.
Now this group seems to be replaced as a unit, as the lens are plastic sealed to the middle assembly, but that where is my problem. There is some type of haze inside the group, and the elements are sealed.
So I slightly scraped around the back element seal carefully.
This is going to be a bit gross..If you dont like unhealthy methods, stop reading and entertain yourself with the K1 Mark 2 threads.

Dal 50 -200 WR inside group dirty

Hi guys!
I just got a DA L 50-200 WR to complete my 3 Cheap Trinity.
The middle group, specifically the element on front of the aperture,looking through front element, is kind of hazed, not fungus.
I removed the front element , and there is a ring where the front element is screwed to.
The middle element has a baffle with 3 screws. It looks like if I unscrew the middle baffle, the hazed element might go off, but the baffle has to be removed first..
In order to remove said baffle, it looks like the retainer front element ring has to be removed first so the baffle slides out..
Question is, does that retainer ring screws out? it has 6 screw holes, 3 are used by the front group assembly.

The real reason for me Canon was 4 to 1 is that their lenses are cheaper to its competition counterparts, also applies to third party lens.
(A mount doesnt count, its really dead).
Color science? Raw or jpg?

Resurrecting Pentax firmware hacking

One useful feature would be a permanent debug mode or at least enable the AF Test without using PK Tether.
Another feature that might be possible a lower base ISO and perhaps eliminate the 25 minute limit for video

As I read it, I understood it was like a kind of digital copyright vault and watchman, scouring the nets for illegal usage and copyright issues on a particular image.
So, I thought like , for now on all Flicker images will be processed and assigned to each owner of a picture. But how will this could billed?

yea, it seems it went to the bottom..The K70 ranked around 35, first Pentax ranked. These rankings are based on daily sales, so it reflects the trend of the day. Most first ranks were Olys and Canon entry levels at around Christmas..
But!! the first ranking dslr lens are currently Pentax! go figure..
