Re: Discouraged by Pentax reliability

Having been shooting slr's fro quite a few years thought it woudl be interesting to drag up all the 'failures' I can remember , I mention models where I can remember and outcome

Mamiya Family jammed Flash cantilever = self repair

Praktica bx20 snapped shutter lock = araldite applied

Canon A1 shutter curtain failing = part ex'd

Canon T70 sheared drive = scrapped

Canon Eos 100 front focusing = canon service

Canon 50 burnt out micro motor = scrapped

Pentax K10d fuses blown = Pentax service

Pentax K5 shutter motor & release button = Pentax service

DA* 50-135 slow AF = replaced Pentax

Luckily any list of whats not failed would be considerably longer for all makes
