Cost would definitely depend on what needs to be fixed. The bellows will almost certainly need to be replaced -- the material Fuji used in the original bellows is known to have issues -- and the shutter linkage mechanism likely will need work as well. (Other things may need to be fixed, but my understanding is that those are the two most common problems in their 645 folder.)

I know that a few years back I heard of this guy recommended as someone in Europe who could do the repairs, but no idea on how much he would charge for it. (And, for the obvious reason of not being in Europe, I have no experience with him. )
Thanx ... J

No Pentax lens in my wide angle collection so far, but I am sure a HD PENTAX-DA 645 28-45 mm F4.5 ED AW SR will arrive some time :-)

Nice. I like the way that the controls are flush-mounted on the camera. Never noticed that particular model before. Thanks for posting it.

Thank you.
Pentax designs are ALMOST always a thing of beauty (cough K-01 cough)

I used to think of the P30 as rather unattractive but the zebra Pancolar makes for a nice combo indeed!

Yeah. Looks rather dashing. Pity about the horrible stop down lever on the Pancolar. PITA!!!
You can always wedge it shut though I suppose.

If only the K-01 had a viewfinder, I'd own one!

Agree. I dont like the aesthetics very much but, the concept is fantastic EXCEPT for the lack of EFV. What were they thinking???

Nice copy - I too have a soft spot for the M40 - fills a (very small) space in my travelling kit.
