K135/3.5 Blade Repair

When I move the small lever on the lens, the blades won't move most of the time. This recently started to happen. I really like the lens and haven't had it that long. It's better than the DA 55-300 indoors. Is it worthwhile to fix myself? I have never opened a lens. If the answer is a professional service, what are the best shops?

I would send it to Eric, he should be able to fix it with a CLA.

The blades are always in the middle of the lens and nearly always require some disassembly. It's a less common lens so you may have to figure it all out yourself. So it may not be a great choice for the first repair attempt. If you have any small mechanical item repair experience and already have some JIS screwdrivers, go for it!

Eric should be able to give you an estimate first.
