    Hello, finally I did not get the lens, but as I informed myself about the possible repair (exchange) at the official german Pentax service I got a quote of 300 euro + TAX. They said that while the part itself is rather cheap (around €80 - comparable to the quote I have heard from elsewhere in USA) the work involved bring the price up.

    thank you for your help

    Now you know what happens to equiptment when its left in cases and bags, out of the sun, for extended periods of time.

    That's the problem with older equipment. Age gets to us all!

    You've got fungus etching the coating. Probably cheaper to get a new used lens instead of repairing that one.
