    Hi guys,

    Just tried the lens and it is working now as per your instructions.
    Thank you very much.
    Kinda not used to manual focus....hahaha....
    Anyway, will try to get use to it.

    Two questions....

    1) Under the Custom Setting Menu, do I need to set back to "permitted" when I change back to my kit lens?

    2) Where can I go to clean/service the lens as there are some stain on the lens? Any idea how much it will cost?

    3) Is this lens available in the market now? I wanted to buy it from my friend....if possible, can pm me what is the price to take over this lens.

    Thank you.

    1. not necessary
    2. find fatique on clubsnap. Otherwise bring to camera worshop at peninsula shopping centre or pngcamera at adelphi. Price depends on lens' condition, just bring your lens there and ask them for quotation.
    3. try to find on ebays. price should be < S$ 100.

    Hi guys,

    Just had my friend's lens serviced and tried it out.
    It is qutie different when using a manual lens compared with a auto lens.
    But, i really like the feel and the pictures taken.

    I have questions since this is my first time using a manual lens.

    1) When I turned on my K7, there is this message saying "Input Focal Length" and it range from 8 to 800. Is it input of importance?
    2) Which ever mode I choose (P, Sv, Tv, Tav), the screen always show Av mode. Only M, B and X mode will show what the mode that I have choosen. So, which mode should I select when using manual lens.

    Thank you.

    Since its for the in-body SR, so I don't have to choose any value, am I right?

    of course u have to. it tells the body what focal length your lens is so it can perform the necessary SR effectively.

    varying degrees of compensation needed for different focal length... and anyway, its a 2 second effort

    If you don't enter the correct focal length, the in-body SR will under- or over-compensate for your handshake. Not sure what exactly happens if you don't choose any value, but for sure SR won't work well.
    My photos - see just some or all of it =)
