SMCP-DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 ED
Nov 11, 2011

although I have been using the FA31mm and FA43mm since my K5 purchase nearly a year ago I still would like to have the SMCP-DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 ED in my bag. I did not think I would miss using a zoom after lugging 2lbs of the Zeiss 24/70 around, It gave me tennis elbow!

on B&H I've noted that the reviews are mixed but the break downs with auto focus motors is a serious bummer. even if one had another as a back up that would likely fail also over and over. these are recent reviews and I was hoping this was all fixed by now but I guess not, what is the deal here?
