16-50 question

Using the 16-50 lens with my K10D, love the lens, had it 2 years but I find the focusing very slow. It gives a little squeak when focusing and 25% of the time the shutter won't release and I have to manually turn it until the shutter trips.

Am I doomed to send it to Pentax or is this common with the K10. Sometimes when I turn the camera on, it won't focus and I either turn off and on again or manually focus.
Any comments please
There is no one so lonely as a person without their PENTAX........I said that!
