Anyone want to part with their original camera lens?

I've ordered one from both dji and Drone Works. Nothing is happening.

Currently using a Polar Pro filter. Would be willing to make a trade - Polar Pro for stock lens.

Thanks,

Mark.

Might be faster to order a regular camera UV filter. Disassemble the filter and use that glass.

Two challenges:
1. The right size - I disassembled a 30mm UV filter (Tiffen) and the glass was only 27.14mm in diameter.
2. Thickness - The Tiffen glass is much thicker than the DJI glass, which is really wafer thin.

Side note - I have been able to confirm the filter mount is 30mm, but it is a higher TPI than standard lens filters. Testing with the disassembled 30mm filter and the 30mm step down ring I was able to get about one clean revolution before the threads locked hard. Visually they are close, but not quite there.

I thought about asking the local glass shop to see if they could do it, but haven't gotten around to it.
