    Yes, you can. But you need to save your original lens ROM file and keep a good copy of it. It's very easy to just convert the lens back to SDM one if you prefer.

    I strongly urge those with the 2 lens to either be there or to make arrangements with a friend to bring your lens down for the conversion.


    Who knows maybe FW or Ben may strike Toto $6 million , next round and then jump ship.... then there may not be another next time....
    If I strike $6m, I sure get all Pentax STAR lenses back plus the coming FF and 645Z.

    Curious as to why DA*60-250 cannot convert.

    Because the 60-250 doesn't support screw driven AF. It is SDM only, same as DA*55, 200 and 300.

    I decided to convert my DA*15-50 as well since this is one of rare group gathering for me.

    BTW, how many confirmed joining?
    Need to hog the table

    Good for you

    I think at least 3 to 4 guys (confirmed with me) coming to convert their lenses. Don't know how many shy ones who never spoke but just show up

    Make sure you ask them to put the beer on the table first then you start to convert.
