Good news here, I tought I had to share it with you.

I just got an email from my Pentax dealer in Montreal.
Pentax Canada will repair the Kr for 160$, I'll pay the parts only, Pentax is offering the labour. (previous repair estimate was 450$)

I'm very satisfied, big kudos to my Pentax dealer Camtec-Photo in Montreal for their helpful advices and very positive attitude. I'm glad I purchased it local and not online.

Glad to hear it was resolved !
Now please do two things.
1) Send a postal mail to Camtec-Photo management or CEO saying just what
your last sentence says here.
2) If they have a comment area on their website, again say on there exactly
what your last sentence says here.

This will be a pay-back to them and will encourage other locals to buy from them.

It's good to know that buying at the local is more convenient than order online, specially in this case

Can you Share some picture taken after the camera is fixed?

I have the same issue, my camera has never been dropped. Problem comes and goes, seems like I am fine as long as I keep the original lens on it, both of the Tamron for Pentax lenses send it into a frenzy. I have seen many reports of this in internet search results. That problem is what brought me to the forum.
