Yes!!!

Send it back right away, I had the same problem with mine when I first bought it. I missed some great shots because of this problem. The good news is that (1) you and I seem to be the only ones in the world with this problem since I made a post similar to yours a year ago and no one else had the problem, and (2) once you get it back it may just be your favorite lense (it is one of mine).

This is what the return receipt from Pentax (criscam) said they fixed:

TIGHTENED LOOSE FOCUS LENS GROUP

REPAIRED AND ADJUSTED ZOOM ENCODER BRUSHES

ADJUSTED TO MANUFACTURERS SPECIFICATIONS

VERIFIED FOCUS ACCLIRACY AT NEAR AND INFINITY TARGETS

CENERAL CHECK AND CLEAN

Good luck!
