Dont forget cameras today are computers. As such, just expect they might crash.

Too bad but I suspected there are no parts anymore. The Japan repair site looks like a good idea. Shipping back to Europe should work at the moment, I bought some stuff via ebay over there.

You might try Kamerazeit in Germany, I dont know if he speaks french/dutch, but english should work. He is authorized and may give a hint whether spare parts are still available.

Funky colored cameras could have an advantage, I think, if you are travelling in "unsafe" countries. Who would steal a camera in pink? Although, who knows, they stab you for five bucks. Plus, funky color = not serious = maybe you can take pictures where black cameras = pro = banned.

Have Pentax IBIS capabilities improved with successive generations?

I wonder if this IBIS race is because the photographers are getting older, shakier hands or try to shoot drunken. If you imagine that Pentax was one of the first and the industry as a whole denied the necessity of it (because it's in the lens). Now everyone is raving about it. Strange new world.

Why so many used Pentax 645 220 inserts for sale?

I remember a thread where it was indicated that the 220 pressure plate itself had a slightly different thickness compared to the 120 holder. This might affect tension and winding and motor.

Regarding tax, depending on the customs officers at your border you may slip through. But yes, in general you to pay your tax when coming back to Denmark (declare goods, red sign). Otherwise it is fraud and if they pick you later you may face a fine.

Regarding warranty, I have no clue.

I dont know why so many people rave about 4k. I have seen some 4k stuff via youtube lately (and yes, it was 4k, not downsampled) on my 55" TV and to my eyes this just looks unreal. Maybe I am too old-fashioned, but the 007 Goldfinger scene I've seen in 4k was ummm, strange. Other modern day stuff also look wrong. Even simple HD does not please most people because you see every grain but 4k looks just artificial to me.

I would use spot AF and maybe the lens is simply not sharp at 2.8? Did you try 5.6 or 8? Did you get focus confirmation?

Widest aperture depends on focal length. There is one where it is only 4.5. 3.5 you get at 18mm. Have you tried this? Apart from that, always clean the contacts on lens and mount.

Has the camera ever got wet? Maybe the electronics are dying. If you here strange noises when the LCD is on, this might be a hint.
