DA* 50-135 SDM Failed- Other Canucks?

Sigh...

My less than 1 year old DA* 50-135 zoom SDM focus system was dead out of the bag today. I haven't used it for a few months and before that it saw maybe 20 uses since I first bought for a wedding shoot in August 2008 from Prodigital2000 Canada.

I tried cleaning both the lens and K20D SDM contacts but no luck. My DA* 300 SDM works on the same body so it's not the camera itself. The 50-135 does focus fine via the screw drive on my *istDS body.

When press to auto-focus the 50-135 on the K20D, the focus scale moves ever so slightly but it stalls immediately.

Any other Canadians out there that have sent their DA* 50-135 to Pentax Canada for this fault? How long before you got your lens back? What was reported?
