Finally managed to repair the flex, basically DIY'd a new one.
>The flex? a zoom with in-lens AF motor?
AF yes, but it's a prime. It uses a flex for miniaturization.
>rechip i guess to communicate with another mount?
It's just an add-on chip that piggybacks and translates the old EF protocol to the new one. Canon pulled a bait and switch with third party lenses some years ago so in stock form Sigma lenses from many years ago only fully work on film bodies (they don't stop down or even let the camera take pictures at any aperture other than wide open). Sigma did a conversion at some point but they have long stopped since, as it's 90s glass at best.
>that's some balls and with a Sigma lens i also suppose it's an old because the newer ones are pretty pricey,
It is a Sigma indeed. I had more balls than brains so I didn't get the flux to do the desoldering, leading to disastrous results. But I've managed to fix it since, luckily.
>Guess you got stuck with the world famous Sigma body construction quality lol, hope at least you can use that thing
lol, indeed. It's a hefty fucker for being a tiny 28mm, metal barrel.
>i recently read about modding some old Nikkor lenses but the thought of having to move the little spring that moves the aperture makes me sick, i think i would rather experiment with the helicoid than to deal with that little devil again.
Declicking or something?
>Shit sucks because apart from my area being invaded overnight with commie groups i also haven't bought a wide angle lens so many ideas i had are vaporized.
Can I recommend two cheap decent wides? Sigma Super Wide II 24mm f/2.8 (mine, but the Nikon version takes no modification to work) and Vivitar 24mm f/2.
I'm not sure it works, to be fair. I got vaxx'd myself, mostly as a way to avoid getting Pfizer in the future and to get people to stop busting my balls with the vax insistence. Got an inactivated virus one. They were pushing for a booster shot with Pfizer but as you can imagine I'm not falling for that.
Indeed I did ask lol. In that thread I was attempting to bring some new blood to /tv/
. The whole "is this a raid" thing was a thinly veiled advert. The average cuckchanner sucks, but most of those anons there seemed cool, so after I derailed the thread into /tv/ territory with my Tarantino bait that they gleefully took
it only made sense to try to pull them in.
>Photo just to upload something
That's beautiful, is that Baja? Not bad for such an early photo of yours.
Also why is this board on their chopping list? Are they running out of space? It's not like we're a liability.
