Thirteen days later and it is back in my hands cleaned and repaired. I had heard horror stories of 6 to 8 week turnaround or longer so I was prepared for a long wait. I am pleased to have my K-50 back. Now to get back on my feet so I can use it!
Yea and hooray! Good to hear that the turnaround time was so quick. What was the problem?

It came back with my personalized setting intact. I haven't examined the paperwork so I'm not sure what they did.

Does it say aperture control block anywhere?

I came home from the hospital yesterday in a pain-killer fog and I honestly don't know where the paperwork ended up. I'd like to know what they did but at this point I'm just happy to have it back.

I found the paperwork today. They replaced the "Diaphragm Control Block" and they cleaned, tested and adjusted it.

That's what I meant to say. It is the same repair mine got.
