Hi Pentax users, I have put up a poll on Pentaxforums looking for users that have had “Aperture Block Failures” your input would be great!
Pentax Aperture/Diaphragm Control Block Failures
I am starting this thread in an attempt to follow up with Ricoh/Pentax with regards to how many camera models have been afflicted with “APERTURE BLOCK” or “DIAPHRAGM CONTROL BLOCK FAILURES” and if their camera was/has been fixed by Ricoh/Pentax.

If you have a camera that has failed please answer the poll question that affects your model, i.e. K1, K50 ,K70 and more!

If your model is not listed in the poll questions provided please post a reply with the “model & shutter count” at time of failure.

Please respond through the link on PentaxForums!
