It is reasonable to assume that your k20d has destroyed your 16-50.

I've heard of another person with the screw drive only for a K20D with issues.

Everyone missed my earlier post it seems but I have a screw drive K20D now. The camera has some issues and the SDM has failed in the camera. So I attach an SDM lens and the SDM does not work. Screwdrive is fine. I have 2 K20D's and the other one works as normal.

The non-SDM K20D otherwise is fine and has the latest firmware. The contacts are clean and I can't 'see' anything that would have caused this. I wish I knew how this happened and could offer a solution to everyone who wanted to turn their K20D's to SD only bodies.

I don't think you can say that the K20D has destroyed anything.

Thank you
