Are we talking authorised repairers, or anyone who can do Pentax repair work? If the latter, I'd like to nominate PhotoTec Services, St John's, Newfoundland. They've fixed an ME, a P30T, and two K-mount lenses (an old K/M-type and an A-type Vivitar) for me with excellent results.

Thanks! Sent off for a spotmatic cla estimate.

Let me know how it works out. I note your location in Toronto - it seems odd that you can't find anyone closer!

There's at least a couple here, but they don't come recommended by anyone. I sent a quote request via online form to one months ago, but never got a reply.

Okay, just bear in mind that every camera or lens you send in benefits Canada Post.

Trying to look for a decent place for repairs in Québec ... not much luck so far except for one that I used once only (and wasn't satisfied):
acceuil but some people might be luckier than I was.
Ontario ... not sure for this one but I used to send anything Pentax to Pentax Canada directly and it always took forever.
Again, if someone would like to barge in if they found other shops, that would be very helpful.

IIRC, Isn't Sun the authorized warranty repair for Ricoh Canada?
