    Hey, I read your recent test shot of VL 20mm against pentax Da* 16-50

    Great stuff and I always know your stuff more objective and reliable than the heresay in the forums.

    Recently acquired from ebay, Pentax ES II, cosmetically and optically like new EXCEPT that Viewfinder blind is locked shut, and nothing I do (new batteries, fiddle the shutter-speed dial, battery-test button, exposure-compensation-dial, hitting it, praying) has any effect. I COULD just gestimate the distance frame bygolly, and shoot, and with that lovely Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 1.8/55, it would probably come out with a good photograph, ... but with such a beautiful TTL, it seems a shame.

    H E L L P !!!

    Hi Blende8,

    A while ago you posted a response to this problem

    Play with my K10D today and pushed the diaphragm release to one side

    I have the same problem - the daiphragm actuator spring has become dislodged - I have followed your advice but cannot see the pin/spring. Somehow it must have gone right inside the camera body. Do you have any other ideas how I may be albe to fix this.

    Any help would be greatly apreciated,
