Hi,
Try f16 at Margate, a northern suburb of Brisbane. He has a web page at f16CameraService.com
Regards.

We should make a list of lens rehab repositories around the country because of how hard it can be to find these service providers in Australia.
Even harder to know who to trust when you're not aware of them.

CR Kennedy should be on the list, of course, if you are talking about Pentax or Sigma lenses.

Otherwise I have heard positive things about Hartlands:

Our Services - Hartland Camera Repairs

In Australia, they do official warranty lens repairs for Tamron, Nikon, Olympus, Casio and a few others, and say they can also do Pentax:

We have experience with the following brands, Bronica, Bowens, Canon, Casio, Elinchrom, Fuji, Mamiya, Manfrotto, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Polaroid, Slik, Tamron, Velbon, large and medium format lenses and bodies, and many other brands.
