Re: Second 50-135 failed

16-50 - replaced twice - all in less than a year
50-135 - replaced twice - all in less than a year
200 - perfect
300 - perfect

All my equipment is taken very good care of and cannot be told apart from new. Just bad luck on the SDM lenses for me I guess. I do not like to post or rant and rave about my issues, but these are the extent of them. All my other Pentax gear has been perfect.
28 shift
35 f2
50 f1.4
100 macro DFA
+ other older Pentax lenses and mutiple bodies and flashes.

Not to forget all the DA and FA limiteds I had before I sold them last year. All were excellent with no issues... wish I kept the FA Limiteds though..

Overall I feel Pentax makes an excellent product, It's just that the first two SDM lenses have their issues and I'm sure that Pentax will solve this if it has not yet and it will be a bad memory like all the optical issues the 16-50 had when first released.
