Yes, the lens can be disassembled and cleaned. But before you think about doing so, think about this. Do you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment on reassembly? If you don't, please leave inside cleaning to a trained professional.

SOURCE: Remove lens

GOT IT!!! I had the same problem. Took all of the screws out of the thing and disconnected the PCB. That allowed me to take the Lenses unit out. Once I did that, dismantle the Phillips screws from the rear of the lens and pull the lens apart. I found a Little White speck of dust on the Sensor. Took that off, put it all back together and it’s like New!! Chuffed. Hope you have as much Luck as I Did. :D

SOURCE: Pentax Ist DL auto focus not working anymore after using Quantaray AF LD 70-300MM Lens

It seems to be a connection issue between the Lens and the Camera body. Perhaps the mount is not true to the body Ask Pentax about this their Technical Support Team

SOURCE: water spot inside the lens on my Lumix camera

DON'T EVEN TRY TO TAKE THE LENS OFF!!!

To take the lens off, the camera has to be dismantled, and unless you are an experienced technician, there is a 95% chance that the camera will have more problems than what it started with.

Have you taken any pictures with the water spot inside the lens? If it is visible in pictures, then you have several options:

1. Ignore it.

2. Leave it there and use an image editor to clone out the spot in the picture. (Recommended).

3. Take the camera to a repair shop, or mail it to Panasonic's service center. This is the expensive option, to remove the water spot, the price most likely will be well over $100.

4. Buy another camera. The FZ7 is rated to about 50,000 shots, so if you are approaching this number they it may well be worth it to just get another camera.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Unless the spot is seriously affecting your pictures, then leave it there. By having the camera opened there is a high chance that other problems will be introduced, such as: fingerprints,dust or hairs inside the lens or misaligned lens elements.

My FZ7's lens is full of dust, yet this is not usually visible in pictures, when it is, I can usually remove it on the computer.

I would recommend taking the camera to a service center as a last resort.

Will a quantaray AF LD 55-200mm lense work with a 2X teleconverter?


Well, this teleconverter would act as a magnifier to your lens. If you get a 2x teleconverter, it will double your zoom. so you'd then have a 110mm-400mm lens. The teleconverter is attached to your camera first, then the lens on to the converter. Make sure if you get a teleconverter that it's an autoteleconverter. Which means that it will allow you to still use autofocus. I would also make sure you get a name brand that has good glass because some converters will tint your images to a yellow ish haze that would require a whitebalance adjustment.

Can I use Quantaray AF 28-90mm f/3.5-5.6 in a NIKON D5100? Thanks.


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts for a variety of cameras. A lens with a Sony mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, it will fit on the D5100. However, the D5100 requires the lens to have an autofocus motor. If the lens does not have such a motor then it will not autofocus. It will still work fine as a manual focus lens.

Everything is upside down. The larger eye piece looks foggy.


The image is often 'upside down' in telescopes. You can correct this with an auxiliary lens to make the image the right way up. It is very awkward traversing the sky backwards and upside down. If the larger eyepiece looks foggy then first clean the outside of each lens with a lens cloth or isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud or clean and lint free cloth. If this does not solve the problem this means that some moisture has got into the lens housing and the only way to get rid of it is to either remove a lens or to drill a small hole in the side of the housing and then gently heating the lens near a radiator until the moisture has disappeared and then seal up the hole with a blob of epoxy resin or sealing mastic or gaffa tape.

Can i use a Quantray AF LD 70-300 mm lens with my nikon d80? Thanks.


That depends. If the Quantaray lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, no problem, it'll work on the D80. If it has a different mount, then it won't fit onto the D80.
