Unfortunately, it's looking like some grease that I can't get to is migrating back and making things slow again.

I'd do it myself, but as mentioned, it appears that this last part, which contains the blades and mechanism is a press fit and I don't want to damage it if I don't explicitly know how to remove it.

Anyone have recommendations on some good, cheap Pentax lens servicers, like the one from the US that was recommended, but in Europe?

I really, really love the lens so far.
