Poll to establish relationship of K-30/50 frequent failure issues

The purpose of this poll is to try to find out how many of the K-30/50 that have had aperture block failure have also developed shutter block failure. The results will help establish whether both issues are related or not and if the aperture block failure represents the first stage of a bigger problem.

Please answer the following questions with either a Yes or a No:

1.- Did your K-30/50 have aperture block failure?
2.- Did your K-30/50 have shutter block failure?
3.- In case you have answered Yes to the above two questions, was the aperture block failure prior to the shutter block failure?


Thanks in advance to all participants

I no longer own my K-50 and I did not determine shutter count at the time of my Aperture Block failure. I do know it happened inside the 1 year warranty.

Yes sir it is, this is aimed only to establish if there is a connection between the two issues, it is to say: one triggering the other

This should be interesting. Premature shutter failure has not been a significant issue with these cameras*, at least not a reported problem.

* The same is true for Pentax dSLRs in general. I suspect that power users tend to upgrade early and more casual users don't stress their cameras that much.

Never really have any issues when I'm using manual lenses (Sigma 28 mm f/2.8, Pentax M 50 /f1.4, Rokinon 85mm f/1.4)
I do suspect that the 2 are related, and the aperture sticking drives the shutter sticking. You'll 'really' notice this in live view.

Did you get it fixed before you sell it?

Absolutely. And used it for many months after without problems. It was always a reliable camera otherwise.
