Re: How much was the fee if you don't mind me asking?

My first 16-50 lasted about 8-9 mos and then would not focus at a distance at times w/o me turning the focus ring to "encourage" it. Sent it to Pentax USA and they sent me a new lens w/i 2 wks. That lens wouldn't focus for 20-30 sec if the camera had been sitting for a couple of hrs., but once it "woke up", it was fine. Sent it back to Pentax and w/i 2 wks received another new lens, which seems fine so far. I could complain about the product/quality control, but not the warranty service. All the lenses were perfect otherwise-beautiful color, sharp. I am concerned about what will happen when the warranty expires (have a 50-135 also-no prob so far).
