Sticky Aperture Issue

Hey guys need your expert opinion and help

Gear Details
K-3
Lens 70mm f2.4 AL Limited Edition


My lens is not working properly on my k-3 , the aperture doesn't seem to change, i did some research on the net there is something known as a sticky aperture, the Aperture lever returns to its original position very slowly.

What the best way to fix this and fast

Please help

Welcome to the Pentax Forums!

If your lens aperture is slow, lazy, or sticky, it is not something most of us are able to service on our own. A competent repair facility would be your best resource.

Perhaps there is some oil on the blades?? I'd suggest contacting Eric Henderson...well known in the Pentax community....excellent work, quick turn around, fair price.

I have same exact problem with my DA 70 Limited. I sent mine to Eric earlier this month. When I get it back I will post my comments. I also noticed the inner barrel was loose so hopefully he will be able to tighten that up too.

The OP is in Pakistan...probably not a workable option.
