I agree the K-3 is not a perfectly reliable camera, and I have seen mixed
results...one that worked well and created good images and another that
arrived from Russia with broken parts.
I would and did purchase a Bolex which is a lot more expensive but for the
quality of the lenses and the construction it is worth it.
As for fixing the K-3's frameline problem I would recommend calling Du-All
in NYC, they have a page on their website:
http://www.duallcamera.com/services/index.shtml which offers service on
the K-3 for $225, it could be worth it.
