More like 18 months for the most recent SDM failure, and the lens has been little used since then.

And the lenses were older than that.

We can't find out if they solved such issues (as claimed on the other forum, in an interview with a "Pentax engineer") by looking at the past. Today's relative silence might be more telling than our experiences (yes, I had few as well - being impatient and buying newly announced cameras).

The patriots pounce at every opportunity to deny the bad experiences some of us have had with Pentax. I do not understand why they do this. Really, I find it baffling. If I had a better experience with Pentax recently, I would welcome the posts of those who had trouble. I would not try to deny their experience.

Your first post in this topic was to talk about "patriots", not a constructive way of making a point. Think about it, please.

I hope Pentax have cleaned up their act. If not by themselves, I hope (as I've posted here several times) that Ricoh will force them to (as Hoya didn't). We'll see.

Maybe they already did; their latest cameras appears to be trouble free for example.
