If you look at the application forms final question "What Camera System are you primarily using?" you'll see

Canon
Nikon
Sony
Pentax
PhaseOne
Others

So they aren't interested in Fuji or Olympus customers but instead their biggest FF competitors/PhaseOne owners. I guess it will be something which is aimed to disrupt their high-end full-format/medium format competitors. So something like phase-shift for 645 D...or the FF thing....or something else....

Just speculating, anyway...

...if you donīt find any repair shop in Sweden just contact the German authorized Ricoh/Pentax repair shop "MAERZ".....they deliver good work, are fast (unless at seasonal peak times) ....you could ask Pentax/Ricoh Sweden whether they cover the adjustment for your K3/lenses based on their warranty...my brand new K3 had as well focus issues with +9/+10 for some recently already calibrated lenses...now itīs at 0/+1 with most of them....my K3 was adjusted last month under dealers warranty.....but for my lenses I did paid around 36/54/108 EUR net for different lenses in the last years....

Hi Ofer,

please read my quote #322....it looks like that they can't fix K3 mirror flopping via firmware.....I had to send my camera to their service partner for an software update a there days ago....now waiting to get my K3 back....

So let's cross our fingers, that this really solves the mirror flopping issue (although it will be fairly hard to check, flopping happened to me only twice)....

Hi,

my K3 had twice the mirror flopping issue in the last 6 month. Just have been contacted 2 hours ago by my camera dealer, that Ricoh is offering an fix for the mirror flopping at some of their authorized service partners here in Germany. They don't specified whether it will be an software or hardware fix, but they mentioned that it is only offered to users of affected cameras. Need to send in my camera right now. :p
