60-250 arrived with box rather crunched
Apr 28, 2014

I checked the lens out.  It autofocuses on the K-3.  Maybe some 60-250 owners can provide info about autofocus noise and behaviour from this lens?  It seems to make a small high pitched squeak traversing from far focus to near focus also taking the traverse in several small jumps in AF-S.  Normal behaviour?  The box was poorly packed IMO with the lens box snugly fitting inside the delivery box (no padding on bottom).  Clearly there was some impact taken by the box.  Lens appears in good shape on visual inspection but I don't know if anything inside was stressed.

Impact tore through outer box and damaged snug fitting inner box.

It could be Okay but I would appreciate some feedback on normal AF noises and how smoothly does it operate in general. Request an RMA?
