Been about 2 years on the repair now with no issues. Precision Camera did the repair with about 2000 shots on the body. $180.00 was the repair cost.

Not WR but, the DA 16-45mm has been on my K20D thru all kinds of weather and terrain. No worse for wear than any of my other lenses.

Perfect fit tripod collar for the Pentax Adapter Q for K-Mount Lens

No rub, or undue friction. inside of ring is lined. And when you quarter turn the release knob, there is a safety catch that prevents the clamp from springing completely open, but releases tension just enough to rotate the adapter in the ring. you have to pull back on the knob to fully release the clamp.

This one is the iShoot RT-1. FleaBay has many. Any version for the Nikon RT-1 Lens will work. I chose this one because it has the Arca plate with it. I gave $15.00 for this one shipped. What is important is the 68mm inside diameter.

I found an alternative tripod mount for the Pentax Adapter Q for K-Mount Lens. It also allow me to spin from portrait to landscape. It's a perfect fit. No modifications were needed.

rosettaquarrier,
I can report that the K-S2 lives on and is working flawlessly. After you sold it off in December to ME!, I had it repaired, along with a new aperture block swap.

Well, It charged up pretty quick. Took a few shots. Not bad for a 14 year old 5MP Camera.

Have any of you ever seen this? Pentax Optio X? An old 5MP from 2004-ish. I did not know it even existed. It just showed up in the mail today. NOS, in original box. never been used. everything still in its plastic. $20+ Shipping. Should I charge it up? or leave it in its museum condition?

Mine had less than 800 on the shutter. But my LCD screen went out first, it would still take photos. Didn't know what settings were on, import them into Lightroom, all dark exposures. Indoor and outdoor shots.

K-S1 Update. So, I received my K-S1 Back from Precision today. After 70 days. It appears to be working fine. But......It came back damaged from repair. All of the rubber grip parts on the front and the rubber thumb rest on the back are cracked, and sticky. like someone spilled solvent on them. And they are not aligned correctly either. I have dispatched emails to both Precision and Ricoh. I insisted they just send me the rubbery bits and I will put them on myself. Not going to send the camera back for another 70 days for their negligence.

It would probably fall under the $212.00 that Precision charges for a K-50 or K-5 repair.
