Have seen an auction for a cosmetically mint K01 but the shutter appears to be jamming after a few shots, it clears on power up but happens everytime...
Does it sound like an easy issue?
Anyone came accross this?

Cheers

Not an issue someone bid 71 for it...bit risky not knowing how much repair would be...

I'm a bit late, but for what it's worth, I retired my K-01 because of a jamming shutter. I've heard of it happening to others, but have no idea if it is a common occurence. I didn't send it in so no official estimate, but my local camera store suggested 150 or up as possible repair cost - and they had a great offer on the K70 so ...
Great little camera the K-01 though!
