Hi everyone

I manage to find a K-24 at a good price and received it today. I am trying to remove the lens from the camera. First step were easy and I am currently at the following stage:


Could anyone advise please what the next steps should be to fully remove the lens?

Thanks for your help

Pull those 4 big flathead screws. The lens unthreads in the normal direction from the mount. There may likely be a grub screw holding it in place, look for that on the rear cell area of the lens. It would be a screw going perpendicular to the threads of the lens itself, screwing in radially into the mount and into a recess in the rear lens cell, most likely. It will probably be fairly small.

For future reference for other people, here are some useful tips: unscrew the little appendix for the aperture so you don't look stupid when removing things around the lens... [emoji19]

Precision tools used for computers work great to remove the tiny screws holding the lens.
