K3 autofocus ceases to work
4 months ago

Just took out my K3 with Sigma 17-50  and found it had lost ability to autofocus. Returned home and tried with other lenses and it no longer works either with screwdrive or with SDM lenses.  Luckily it is still under warranty but it looks as though it will not be available to me on my forthcoming trip in a few days time.  Does anyone have any explanations as to why and how this failure could have occurred please?
