Re: Pentax Canada Service Center Change (Bad News?)

One of the problems is getting parts into any country from another. I recently had a K5 repaired that needed a shutter motor (after the shutter and aperture had been replaced). My US repair center needed to order the part from Japan which entailed the whole customs deal which delays deliveries. The camera was down for a few weeks longer than anticipated. This wasn't really due to anything other than getting the part. I got the camera back yesterday and it is working great. Sometimes things happen, however I know its hard to have patience and I had to make do with some workarounds.
