I have recently bought a Pentax K1000 camera and have had problems with the light meter. I live in the UK and took the camera to my local camera shop. The repair necessary is apparently just to replace the wiring but the estimated cost is GBP £75 (aprox $150). I really think this is too much and I'm being fleeced for my non-refundable £15 deposit. Could anyone tell me if this is the repair price you would expect and also how much it would cost to buy an external light meter instead (and the pros and cons of doing that). I don't know too much about cameras but I want to get into it. Please help!
