I was hoping that that was not the answer. Thanks in any case.

Well, CRK had the full set of K-7 shims in stock and they cost me all of $2 each.

See my post https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/114013-k-x-focusin...ml#post1174957

Basically in the US - buy your shims direct from Pentax US (info@pentax.com) but I would rather you boycotted them as they were totally disinterested in helping me. Or from Katz Eyes, if you are not in the US. Katz Eyes are happy to sell them at $5 each +P&H, bless them.

Rachael Also gave me the part numbers for them:

>>>> 76570.M02200A - 0.15mm
>>>> 76570.M02200B - 0.20mm
>>>> 76570.M02200C - 0.25mm
>>>> 76570.M02200D - 0.30mm
>>>> 76570.M02200E - 0.35mm
>>>> 76570.M02200F - 0.40mm


I found international repair centres listed on Pantax's official site to be not helpful in this. See details in the thread above.

So far I made my own out of a piece of card and it works perfectly. Waiting for proper metal set to arrive.

Best of luck and tons of patience to all of you who is unfortunate enough to deal with Pentax aftersales.
