    Arrrrr - Help!! Good Aussie Pentax lens repairer?

    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...
    BUT doing this lost the indexing ball off the aperture ring
    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.
