Was hoping i would be awhile before I revisited here. Upon receiving my camera about 3 weeks ago. I went to shoot a drifting event for the weekend and rented 10-24mm and 60-250mm*. Figured I'd throw my battery grip on where in about a span of 10 minutes I got the shutter flap twice and once during video mode. Then noticed my camera is detecting my battery more than 1/2 way depleted with the grip which btw had new AA Duracell's and eventually didnt detect the batteries all together. I ditched the grip. Figured I'd shoot until he battery dies but the shuter flap once more stopped that. Lastly I noticed the 60-250mm was getting slower and slower AF, so I turned my camera off 5 hours before the end of the event and charged it up. After full charge it stopped focusing altogether, then I thought SDM failure, threw fish eye on and had the same problem. In the repair order they re-calibrated everything and updated firmware which my firmware wasn't up to date, also camera froze on me yesterday too. My shutter button is still smooshy from the drop aswell which I requested in the repair order. So with all considered what should I expect or request? I'm skipping emailing and going to call Ricoh on Monday.

So 4 months wait. Recieved camera back a few days ago. Was told the casing was going to replaced which it was not, my shutter button is smooshy, and repair order said firmware was updated but it still has Version 1. That being said my K3 turns on again, though it took alittle long than usual the first time back, but thank jesus because I had ranted at first ready to Mortal Kombat on someone. Still though theres way too many loops and hoops to get a straight answer with the repairs. I still hold to my "lower standard" for a better word of customer service after being told time and time again to talk to someone else and then contact this person to tell you this, gets ridiculous fast. I will monitor my K3 from the this time, if you quoted my last post be grateful to remove from your comments would be great :).

Prepare for headache. Hopefully this will get better and soon.

True. Still dont know why they would send me my camera back with a dead batterly though. I'll be home in about 4 hours, so I will let you guys know happens. I'll also take pics and video so you can see I'm not blowing smoke.

Tell me about it. Pentax just points the finger with an -insert excuse as to why they cant help and how this is precisions problem now thanks for your 1300 dollars-. Like magic they have no knowledge of anything at all once the camera is sent. Pentax didn't even no my model number or where it was nor if it was even registered in the system...isnt that your job to, I dont know, keep track of customers property. I was going to open my photography services this year but now seems it will take another year thanks to Pentax. Simply enough has solidified my move. I'm considering bring this up to consumer watch aswell pending on my conversation with Pentax on Monday.

Its a shame they seem to give the stupid 645Z all the preference to just about everything. Currently everyone who has there stuff in for service is having the crappiest time ever..

Still waiting. Finally got an answer from Precision.....They told me that I needed my serial number since they cant pull up repair(s) by phone number for who knows why. Them having my camera, box, receipt or anything that has my serial number I called Pentax and then they said to call CRIS so I can get the serial number since apparently Pentax doesn't know (even though its logged in their system). CRIS went extremely smoothly after telling them my problem about my serial number, They were able to pull my info and give me my serial number so I can give to precision for to check repair status. Now if precision would learn to pick up their phones.....that be great...

They were telling me "they probably wont pick up due to all the shipments". In my head I'm thinking "so your saying I shoulda got a GH4 or the 6D like I planned". Seriously if you cant even give me a estimate of time getting my....oh i dont know.....1300 dollar camera from you guys, why dont you find a way to do it yourselves...

My K3 is currently in for repair that I sent in the first week of July, which so far hasn't been touched since. I've tried to pull up my repair status but found nothing. Tried to call, nothing. Even when I called Ricoh/Pentax they were at a loss to the status of my repair let alone a return date. All they did was just give me the run around, call precision, and tell them the same thing I told them. Service like this makes me wanna sell my K3 all together when it gets back!

Yeah i want the 35mm art lens bad but I'm trying to hold of a bit longer into the summer, which is another reason why I want the FA31 since its equal if not better than sigma plus it be nice to have at least one pentax lens ;). Only thing thats got me skeptical about *55 is how slow the autofocus is apparently is, though i don't usually whip out anything smaller than 70mm while shooting motor sports but its fun to have the option if they can relatively keep up. I'll look into FA 77 & 24, thanks for the input guys. Sucks these price tags are so ridiculous.

Your thinking of the 18-35mm art. I have seen this lens in person at a camera store locally and think it has been out for quite some time. You can even get it on amazon and a few copies are being sold on ebay.
