16-50mm autofocus repair
May 24, 2012

Hello,

I have a Pentax 16-50 f2.8 lens that doesn't want to auto focus anymore (nothing happens when I try to auto focus). Manual focusing works perfect. It might be a SDM failure but I am not sure.

The trouble is that the lens is out of warranty. I've been searching on Google for some repair centres in UK and I could only find a couple of them. The best price I've got was a "minimum" £150.

Since I know SDM problems are not a rare thing, do you know if and where could I have the lens repaired for less?

Thank you,
Robert Mihalache
