If you can't get it done in NY, I recently had it done by Gentec International in Canada for my former Sigma 70-200 HSM II. While you're at it, you can have them swap your lens mount so it doesn't scratch your K1.

I have both the 645D and K1. I really prefer the colours and sharpness I get out of the 645D when the lighting is good. The K1 is much better at low light, autofocus, IBIS, dynamic range, and overall speed. Of the two, the 645D behaves much more like a film camera, which I prefer. With prime lenses, it isn't even that much heavier than the K1.

It just has to go back to Sigma to keep it from scratching the K1 or if it has an older incompatible firmware. This copy is nicely up-to date now so no worries on any Pentax body.

Thought some of this might find this video helpful (not my video):

You Tube

Also, looks like there may be another resource for SDM Repair (video author).

K1 vs A7?

Just got my K1 and the usability and and quiet shutter are just so much better than my A7. The fast manual lenses were easier to focus on the A7, but not so much the case for slow lenses, such as my Pentax-K 28mm F3.5.

Make sure the battery contacts are clean. I had corroded contacts on the battery compartment in my Canonet that got fixed with a good scraping.

Best screen ever for manual focus : Canon ee-S!!!

Just received my focusing screen and WOW! I can manually focus way more accurately and faster than before, particularly with my Tenpa 1.36x enlarger. It's almost as fast as autofocus for stationary objects, so call me impressed!

It's just amazing what it did for my Vivitar (Samyang) 85mm F1.4 lens. I can actually hit focus where I want repeatedly now, even at F1.4. Now my K5 is just perfect for my uses and as easy to focus as my Sony NEX with focus peaking.

Really, a must-have for fast glass!
