I hope it does too! I really feel your pain, last fall we had a trip to Yellowstone planned in September. The k-5 was acting up, the mirror would jam and only giving it a sharp smack on the bottom would get it going again. I held out as long as I could hoping the k-3 would release and I would get that and send the k-5 in for repair. But I finally decided I better send it in on July 28th. Went crazy with no camera and as September approached, still no camera. Finally bought a k-5IIs at the last minute to take on the trip. Got the k-5 back on October 14th. Cris did a great job but watching the camera sit on "parts hold" for 10 weeks was not pleasant.

thanks John!! Patience has never been my strong point
