Jim, I believe that Pentax have modified the offending part in more recent production units. If memory serves me, this came to light during an interview with a Pentax employee.

One would hope that the fix would be incorporated in lenses sent back for repair.

I certainly hope so, Mike.  I really like that lens but I have to know it will work when I need it to work.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
