I find it ridiculous that sony is charging to fix this $1k lens; its build is an embarrassment to sony and zeiss.

And this thread provides some insight into how many of these lenses are crapping out at relatively young ages. Can you imagine this lens still selling on eBay 15 or 20 years from now like many Minolta lenses? I sold mine while it was still under warranty - in hindsight it looks like that was a good move.

What did you end up going with? I love this lens but the timing is horrible. I really want something but can't really afford too much. I have the 50mm 1.8 and 1855 kit lens. I want to possibly get rid of both of those as I had those ranges with the 1680mm and I thought it was comparible to the quality of both but maybe had better color. Thanks for all that have helped.
