Uugh! Add one more to the list of failed SDM
Feb 9, 2011

Rats! Double rats! Going to Italy in a few weeks and out of concern about little-used SDM lenses, I got my 50-135 out tonight to take a few snaps. Used it a week or so ago, and even though it hesitated, seemed to finally focus just fine. Tonight? Nothing! Tried it on the K-5 as well as the K-7. Totally dead, as far as auto focusing. Guess I'll have to send it in, as soon as I figure out where to do so. Last time I had to send anything Pentax in for repair was about 20 years ago to Boulder.

And to make it worse, "something" flicked off the lens onto the floor. A careful inspection of the lens shows that one of the edges of the hood mount broke off. Uugh.

I really wanted to take this lens to Rome with me, in additon to the 16-50. Those, along with fast 50 were the only lenses I was planning on taking.
