New SDM motor & circuit board for DA*
2

I recently sent my DA* 16-50 to CRIS for SDM repair.  I called today to approve the quote ($275!) and the customer service person said that there was both a new SDM motor and a new circuit board to go along with it.  Prior SDM repairs have apparently just replaced the motor, but apparently the new motor needs somewhat different electronics.  While the cost is pretty steep, this is the first SDM repair I'm actually paid for since getting the 16-50 in 2008 (others were under warranty), so I guess that is some solace.  Fingers crossed that the new system is more reliable - I really like the lens.
