Lens repair experience

I purchased a used DA70 still under warranty earlier this year. I noticed it had some oil on the blades which the seller hadn't observed. I just recently got around to sending it in to Pentax Canada for warranty repair. Ten days after I posted it to them, it was returned to me in great shape, with all work completed as requested. It can't have been in their repair shop for more than 3 days.

I thought I'd better rant about this.

Wow! That's the fastest I've ever seen a repair on a Pentax lens under warranty. Congratulations to you and to Pentax!

Great news for me, I want to drop off my K5 for CLA . Hopefully a quick turnaround for me as well. I wonder if they will check the shims on my Aftermarket focusing screen?

You should send them a thank you note. Perhaps with a little encouragement, this could happen all the time ;-)
