Good SDM News
My repaired DA* 16-50 returned from CRIS yesterday. The invoice specified "INSTALLED UPGRADED SDM" and "REPLACED MAIN PCB/FPC." My initial observation is that the focus seems snappier than it ever was, very quick to change and lock. Granted, its been close to a year since this failure began and the slowing could have begun before I really noticed it (plus my memory is far from perfect), but initial impressions are good. Fingers crossed that my 6 years as a Pentax beta tester are now finally over . . .
