Re: Help with broken 16-50 f2-2.8

Some considerations:

I tried opening some of my lenses (20-50, 18-55, 20mm prime). All of them have the flat cable soldered, so it can't be a replacement for the one in 16-50 S.

The only lens that "could" have the same cable is the 60mm macro, but I wouldn't want to sacrifice it.

Hence I need to order the part, BUT:


seems discontinued in Europe and can only be found in US and AU, with really high delivery price to Italy (not counting the customs).


seems to be a replacement for it, BUT looking at the image it seems it is just the flat cable (not the contacts) hence I'd have to find someone able to solder it to my existing contacts....

I don't know what to do.
