Re: DA*16-50 problem too!

OK.. I have to react now!

I have 16-50 and it was about 2 months in service for optical adjustment. After 2 weeks of using it when it comes back from service one night it failed to focus. Something stucked inside the lens mechanics and focusing ring was locked and can't move from side to side and AF stoped working too. I was angry and after two days it begin working as normal, but I send it to repair. I wish they will replace the lens for new, but I'm afraid the do nothing with it and send me lens back and say it's OK, but it's not. This failure showed up twice and everytime after some time it begin to work as normal. Also the optical failure is not OK and m 16-50 is worsier than DA18-55 and they did nothing with it after 2 months in service and I'm not saying my copy of 16-50 is badly backfocusing There's something in internal focusing mechanics because decentering shows on variouse places on picture, depeding on rotation of focusing ring. It sucks and I can't explain this problem exactly to reseller and then they can't describe it to service as expected. So it's really complicated case.
