I just realized that the footage from my K3 is stretched slightly in the horizontal - quite a bit actually.

I would logically think that the lense is bad - I have the standard Meteor lense on it.

Am I correct on what the problem is? Is this a common problem?
Can the lense be checked? - or should I even bother...

Thanks in advance.

Did you view a video transfer, or projected workprint/reversal?

Does the film rest flat on the film guide?

I viewed both.

Yes.
The stock leader for the footage is fine - once my footage comes up it is stretched.

That's really strange. If the image wasn't stable, I'd say the film wasn't resting flush against the gate. If it is stable, it sounds more like a lens issue.

If you're in the market for another lens, let me know. I have an M42 mount Meteor zoom sitting on a shelf. My K3 died awhile back, but the lens is fine and I never had a problem like the one you described.
