My DA*16-50 bites the dust ...
Feb 18, 2014

I thought I had a solidly performing 16-50, then picked it up the other day after a fortnight without use, and found the zoom action locked. I say locked, but there's some slight movement between 16 & 18mm. Turning the focus ring produces a loose, harsh, grating sound ...

Anyone know if this is typical SDM failure or something else ...?  Serial No is: 902****.  Not sure if I'll bother replacing it with another - I'll probably look at a Sigma if anything. Or just stick with my X-E2 and 18-55 which does the job exceedingly well.
