je viens de resoudre le probleme sur mon pentax E70L avec un simple aspirateur domestique,a l'aide du tuyau le plus fin, en realisant un nettoyage minutieux, tout autour de l'objectif, (sans rien demonter, evidemment!), ensuite le code lens error a changé, puis j'ai continuer a ouvrir et fermer l'appareil, a tenter de changer les options "scene", et l'appareil ne s'est pas refermer !...et j'ai pu refaire des photos!...soulagé!...l'appareil n'avait pas 2 mois!..mais rappelons nous qu'il n'aime pas le sable!
