Tried to chase down some rear element slack in my FA85mm 1.4 today. The entire rear element group is sloopy. No joy there yet... :confused013
BUT doing this lost :eek: the indexing ball off the aperture ring :oops:
Manual aperture is now super smooth and infinately variable - going to make metering hard! Thankfully the auto aperture is not effected by this piece of stupidity!

Anyone know of a good repairer for Pentax lenses?

nice lens:) and because its such a nice lens, good chance they might need to be sent back to Japan for it, have u tried going through CR Kennedy, they are the stockist of Pentax in Australia.

Thanks, good suggestion.
I will see if Andersons in the BNE CBD can help, hopeing for a local solution (somewhere in Australia anyway) if possible. So much $$gear out there someone should be able to help.

I think CR Kennedy have a office in Brisbane, the phone number is on their web page. Good luck with it.
