Lens repair in Southern California

I need to have my m85 f2 repaired. The problem seems to be that the spring that attached to the aperture trigger is broken or misaligned.

I realize I could try to fix it myself, but I can see that going badly.

Does anyone have experience in having a lens repaired in the Orange County area?

I suggest you send it to Tennessee. Eric at is a former Pentax repair person and does exceptional work at a fair price. Send him an email and he should be able to provide a ballpark estimate.

Bump for Eric.
I'm in So Cal and he is worth the wait and shipping. First class repairs, honest and quick and a PENTAX expert. He worked on two of my lenses last year.
