The lens that you had problems with , I wonder if it had more serious damage inside it to cause you problems than just an electrical fault ?


Quite possible, never bothered to investigate it further though. It got used for a Kurt Munger style destructive testing of the front element and then binned it.


Was that when you threw it against the wall in frustration ?

To the OP: I just found that James Lao's Ebay page is live!
S A900, A55, A77, M 9, 9000, SRT101, and too many lenses.

Good to see he's still going then .
Just be aware that the particular item linked to is a focus confirm chip .
With this fitted it tells the camera it's there , a green light will come on in your viewfinder to confirm focus lock when manually focussing .
I'm not sure if it allows the aperture to operate as its intended for adapted lenses , M42 and so on .
It certainly won't give you autofocus back .
But it's a starting point of contact , check his other listings , or email him via eBay to get the correct item .

Good find though !

From another thread, where James has emailed back - his website, with ordering details for the correct chip, is live.
