Pentax K-3 repair

Few days ago I have dropped my K-3 may be foot and a half from the asphalt. It hit the asphalt with the Mode Selector wheel and slightly bent it toward camera back right side (side of the power switch). Slightly, as it still rotating and selecting with little more force to be applied. San Jose CA local camera repair said, that they cannot repair the camera, as Pentax does not provide parts. The Pentax/Ricoh recommended Precision Camera Repair quoted flat fee $312 for K-3 prepaid.  Probably with additional return shipping.

Most likely, I would skip the repair, if the camera IS and focusing are still working correctly.

That is my experience
