Ever do something stupid?
Nothing that I would care to admit too on a public forum...

My thought process went something like this:

"Oh, there's dust on the focusing matte, I should blow that out with my Giottos. Hmm, it's still there? maybe another round of air is in order. What a resilient little bugger, but nothing a cotton swab and some 90% isopropyl can't fix!"


Took it to my LCS, who politely informed me that Ricoh won't sell them replacement parts. The tech said on a scale of 10, my dirty-looking smear was about a three. I told him it'd been a 0.5 until I decided to get crafty.
You can buy the screen, Pentax MF-60 is the original. Same as for the K-7, K-5XX and the K-30/50. They are around $40 in Ebay. Get the authentic Pentax screen, not third party..

The plan is to actually replace it with the ML-60, which B&H has in stock.
