Now my friend has sent the Pentax glasses together with a Swift Audubon 8.5x44 to Nicolas Crista to await his estimates. Mr. Crista proved surprisingly difficult to contact but apparently it has finally been done.
Nicolas Crista repaired the glasses at a reasonable charge. Now that I have the glasses with me, I noticed a yellow paper printout from Pentax which says the glasses were repaired under warranty. It must have been a clerical error as they had
agreed to replace them if I could produce the proof of purchase.
