Re: How long would your HSM motor last?

Some update: I've got the new HSM rings and put them on by Feb 2013, now I only use this lens occasionally. So far so good. However this has put me off from buying any new lenses from them, until I can get some disassembled pictures to see if they have even tried to update the construction of their HSM motors. The Canon's Ring USM on the other hand is very well made. Simpler and more robust. I just wish the HSM could be as fine as Canon's.
