The silver camera models are all painted, it will wear off to reveal the black plastic underneath. The metal camera body will reveal polished metal underneath from rubbing on different materials while carrying the camera.

I use a product called CAP keeper you can buy them for about 6 bucks for 6 of them on eBay or Amazon, or one for $3 at London Drugs. It has a cord on it so you can either have it on your wrist or just tie it into your camera strap.

Problem with SMC PENTAX-F 50mm f/1.4

When you select a on your aperture ring all it does is make a ground on the a contact in the lens. The drive slot should be flush with the lens flange not lower or higher, it should also turn freely with a small screwdriver, clean the contacts on your camera and lens with microfiber cloth no cleaning solutions other than 99% alcohol. If that doesn't get it going there is probably a problem in the lens itself.

DA* 16-50 SDM quick fix/check

I know this sounds lame but make sure that contacts on the lens and camera body are clean, and if you are using a grip the contacts for the battery inside the grip and the battery are dirty clean them with an eraser. I had some weird focusing issues with my 60-250,weird out of focus shots yet the battery said it was full, took the trusty eraser and did the contacts on the battery and the contacts in the grip now everything is A OK
Use a new pencil eraser much easier to work with also do the camera body the same way, the battery may look great but acids form a film on the metal without looking grungy give it a rub and give it a try good luck.

An electric motor does not go dead after a couple of months of no use,the culprit is most likely the quick shift clutch not letting go of the focusing mechanisms parts,and it won't let go until you move those parts manually.
