Pentax KS-1 + XR Rikenon 135mm F2.8

I have taken this in my garden this morning with this lens. Was taken at F2.8 I am quite pleased with the result...
I just want to mention that I also get dark frames with the KS-1 and I was shocked to hear that someone experienced the same with the KS-2. To wake it up I fire a quick bursts until its ready. In the motor industry the whole line gets recalled and fixed for free... WHY cant Pentax offer the same?? Its always the consumer that's receiving the short end of the stick..This has been reported all over Jeeezzz!!!

The aperture block failure issue is covered under warranty, but it doesn't seem to be affecting the K-S1/K-S2 as much as the K-30/K-50.

Not sure if a dark first frame is related to that or not.
