Question about Pentax Zoom Wide Angle SMCP-FA 28-105mm f/4-5.6 Autofocus Lens
I cannot see a way to unlock the lens on my SMCP-FA 1:4-5.6 28-105mm Power lens. I now use a Pentax K100 DSuper which cannot operate a Power Zoom, however I am happy to use the zoom manually. I was using the lens successfully MANUALLY with a Pentax istDS but that camera body has gone faulty! So I hoped to continue to use the lens with my new camera but for some reason it is now locked on 1 focal length. HELP.
(I just cut-n-pasted the comment into the solution so this shows up as a solved problem in searches.)
"I've found the solution!
Just goes to show that sometimes it's worth simply calling the importer's service department, who told me in 30 seconds!!
Hold the zoom twist-ring and push, or click it up or down, depending on which way you are holding the lens.
So simple; I even accused him of not knowing what he was talking about.. and of course apologised profusely when it suddenly happened."
