Welcome to Pentax User, sorry to hear about your disaster.

Cameras/Lenses and water do not mix very well and it may already be too late for your lens. The only thing worse than the river would have been salt water...

If you can make an insurance claim then that is the way to go.
Best regards, John

Thank you. In fact, cameras and lenses work very well now. However there are some water stains in lens. so I want to clean up.

Interesting, the trouble may come yet as parts inside the lens rust. Water damage needs very urgent attention to have a chance of success. It's possible that the weather resistant nature of the lens may have helped though.

JPS are the offocial Pentax repair house, so I would contact them ASAP. The contact details are on the UK Pentax website.

Alternatively you could try Alan Marlow. He has done a few repairs for me, and is certainly considerably faster than JPS. Perhaps worth getting a quote from both of them?
