Re: Attempt to simplify SDM to Screw Drive Conversion.

Which camera are you using ? Ithink that this cannot be done with newer cameras.

I changed my 50-135 using a K5 with no problems.

There is an earlier reply which states you cannot do it with a K3

as quoted below

On another note: Has anyone had any luck, yet, getting the lens-firmware written to the SD card using the K-3?

The K-3 still has the menu item for writing things to SD card in its debug menu, but behind the item is no more working code in the firmware to actually execute it.

So you won't find anyone who could do that. You need a different camera for this, sadly.

Ya, I just did this last week.  I had to use a friend's K-5 as PK_Tether did not work with my KP, K-3 nor K-01.
