Another long shot...Check to make sure that all of the screws which attach the mount ring to the body are tight (next to the contacts). I had similar symptoms with my K7 last summer. While despairing, and CLOSELY examining the camera and lens for anything suspicious, I found that the lower-most screw on the mount ring was quite loose. I really didn't think that tightening it was going to help very much but.....

It's worked fine ever since.

Good Luck!

Long shot, but a software reset (menu option) can't hurt anything.
Tried that, thanks!

Another longshot - make sure the "aperture ring permitted" (or whatever it's actually called in the menu) is still set to "permitted" - may have reverted back when the reset was done.

Other than that, I agree with Jeff about getting - and using - electrical contact cleaner on the body contacts.
