Pentax 28mm prime lens broken! How to fix?

Hi all,

I bought a Pentax SMC-A 28mm 2.8 off eBay a few weeks ago. The lens was in great condition, but I noticed there was some slight rotational play in the focus ring before it focused, only a mm or so, I thought it would be fine.

Today, it all went wrong.the play in the focus ring has increased and it now affects the size of the aperture opening when turned too. If I shake the lens I can also hear a rattle like a small screw or ball is moving around inside.

So:

1. Can this be fixed by me? I have no lens fixing experience but do have a few screwdrivers!

2. Can this Lens be fixed by a guru on this forum? If so who is this mighty fine chap?

Thanks for tolerating my moaning!

Paul
