Lenses in sirius 1:3.9 80 200mm auto zoom lens to fit olympus OM1 dirty how to strip down to clean


Answers :

If you have never done it before, better not try.
The lens is a very precise set of lenses, all adjusted to the exact distance at the factory.
Taking apart such a lens will more than likely cause more problems than you can imagine. First off, you need special wrenches in able to remove the retainers for each lens.

Best left to a professional.
Possibly you could sell the lens on someplace such as Ebay and find youself a good one like it at a pretty good price.

Olympus Cameras Hello, I have a Olympus OM10 film camera with several Lens, I am going to buy a Olympus E-410, would the lens on the old OM10 fit onto the E-410, and if not are there any other DSLRs that will take the lens from the OM10? Thank you Pete

I have a Canon 40D and tried to use my Sigma 28-300 1:3.5-6.3 DL Hyperzoom lens on it but the camera kept telling me that it could not communicate with the lens and that I should clean the lens contacts. I cleaned the contacts several times (which were not dirty) but still got the same results. The lens is 5 or so years old, is it possible that the lens is not compatible with the 40D?


It could be that the lens, being so old, needs a firmware update. Go to http://www.sigmaphoto.com/service-support for a service form and instructions. ... Digital Cameras

Hi, how is the best way to clean the lens of the Olympus C-740? I have a fingerprint on it. Is it really true that I have to buy lens cleaner or can I just use a microfiber cloth? Will cleaning it ruin any of the 'covering' on the lens, or is the lens glass? Can you let me know if I need to rub, not rub, or rub in circles, etc? There seems to be a lot of conflicting info on the net. Thanks!


Photo lens cleaner and a microfiber cloth used gently will work. A handier solution that you could carry with you is a product called "lenspen". If there's a photo store nearby, they would have it in stock. You could also find one at amazon.com ... Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry. I was walking through a tunnel under a river and I thought the temperature had changed enough to cause the lens to fog up. However, after cleaning the lens, the blurriness was still there. I could look through the photos on the camera and the photos taken prior to noticing the blurriness are clear and look great. After two days of being inside at room temperature,

Got an FE47 14MP but the sharpness of the pictures is a disaster. I have tried using different options in different light, background and environment but nothing changed. Lens is perfectly clean too. I have taken it to the Olympus agent who has sent it to Portugal for checking and they claim that the camera is according to master sample. Any ideas on what else I can do?


The only option is to take sample photo's and put it on photographic paper to prove your point and take it to the Olympus agent to show him the problem, "take few photo's" the problem you are describing is in the focus mechanism of the lens itself, c ... Olympus FE47 Digital Camera
