This is an update to the previous blog, Sigma Advisory: Some Pentax Mount SIGMA Interchangeable Lenses When Attached to Pentax K-1 Camera Can Scratch the Upper Part of the Mount.
“Pentax K-1” – repair service to be stopped temporarily
Thank you for purchasing and using our products.
We have started the free mount replacement on lenses, which could potentially scratch the camera body of “Pentax K-1” since June 1st.
Due to the shortage of the relevant materials for production, we are afraid that we have to put on hold this repair service temporarily.
Based on the availability of relevant materials, we are expecting to resume the repair service toward the end of July.
