How do I go about taking off this lens on the K-3? Do I mess with the tiny screws? or just twist very hard? I don't want to break it :)

No messing with the screws, just turn counter clock wise. It'll unscrew.

Hope it helps

Brace your palm against the zoom lever for a little extra leverage. Its probably been stuck on there since 1991 or so.

That lens has a longer screw than most m42 still camera lenses.

At begin , You need check, this is K-3 with M42 screw mount or K-3 with bayonet lens mount.
If you will unscrew lens with bayonet mount, you can broken bayonet ( if you have big power on hand )
