My lens has the same problem...

Unfortunately, I experience the same problems with my DA*16-50SDM lens. The retailer send it back to Germany for repairs... It seems that the SDM motor has died, or at least some internal dirt makes his task impossible... It's making some faint noise, like a dying mouse... so sad.

Now, i'm pretty dissapointed, because everybody says this is sort of a "pro" lens... so how are the cheaper models if a "pro" dies after three months... I'm new to this system and having great expectations.

But, after all, that could happen to any lens ( or maybe not?). Maybe it's the zoom curse!
Yeah, that may be! So i'll get some nice primes i guess...
