Yes, that is correct. I sent in my MZ-S to them and they replaced it. They also cleaned the camera and it cost me USD$277 including shipping back to me.

Yes, tested for front/back focus as well as clarity of the focus. Where you aim will be sharp.

New HD Pentax-D FA* 85mm F1.4 still coming in 2019?
Posted By felixkh

Please be mindful of language used in here. We are all sharing about photography. That said, most here have suggested to look for a good copy of the FA*851.4. I too was waiting for the DFA85 but as it never came out, I went looking for a good copy of the FA*85 instead. A good friend who was travelling to Japan saw one and he bought on my behalf and had it shipped to his hotel.

That was about 2 year ago. I am still having fun with this lens. I also have a manual focus Zhong Yi Mitakon Speedmaster 85/1.2 to shoot portraits. For low light, the AF of the FA* 85 is great for old eyes.

Look for one from eBay from Japanese sellers. Value for money.

Cheers.

Doug,

When I changed my screen, there were instructions on how to do it safely. I had to add some sticker shims to the sides of the screen so that it stays in the centre. I had to adjust about 4 times and then I got it correct. You will not regret the change.

If the sound is faint, it is perfectly normal as the others have said. Do not worry too much.

Alas, I am not the owner of the site. Even I cannot connect to it now. I believe the site is down. Will post again when I see that it is up.

The company is based in Taiwan and my friends and I have switched screens from K20D days till today. There is a split screen version but it is not at 45 degrees but rather at horizontal.

Here are some reviews that can be found in Pentaxforums.

We in Singapore found out that serial numbers starting with 5 all have the brass gear as it was shared by the Pentax Tech.

Last resort is to try and clean the contact inside and see if that solves the problem.

Do you also have the battery Grip? If you do, can try to see if that gives the same issue and if it does, it will mean its the contacts.

The way to identify if yours is a plastic gear is by serial number and the company name.

If your camera says Asahi Optical Company and serial number starts with 4xxxxxx, then it is the plastic gear.

If your camera says Pentax Corporation, and serial number starts with 5xxxxx, then it is brass gear.

https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/i00AAOSw6pxdbiz6/s-l1600.jpg

I bought another Mint MZ-S on eBay near the end of 2017 and this also has the plastic gear, but so far so good.
