AFAIK, he is a one man shop, and his turnaround time will depend on workload.
...and health. If Eric falls ill, the work does not get done and rightly so!

Thank you!

Thanks everyone! It seems Eric is pretty impressive. And thanks asaru for the word of caution.

altopiet: It might be fun to repair it myself. I'll read through the info you link me to. If I feel confident enough to perform the repair I might attempt to.

If all fails, I'd reassemble and send out to Eric, then.

While we're at it, is it possible to exchange the focusing screen for a better one? Anyone made that mod?

The camera wins, I admit defeat. I'm kind of afraid of disassembling to a point where I completely screw up the camera. K1000 will be sent in for repairs ASAP. Thank you all!
