Binocular overhaul

I purchased my Pentax 8x43 DCF SP binoculars in 2005 and have used them quite a bit. The focus knob always was somewhat hard to turn but that difficulty has increased. I also suspect that the binos would benefit from an internal cleaning. What would it cost to have Pentax overhaul these binos?

I think most binoculars have a very long warranty, though since they've been pulled from most markets outside of Japan, it might be hard to obtain service. I'd recommend that you start by contacting the authorized Pentax repair facility nearest to you:

Ten years ago a prism in my Pentax 8x40 PCF binoculars came loose.
I could not locate a sales receipt or other proof of purchase.
Pentax USA serviced them free of charge without issue.
