I have the latest firmware and have been using the lens successfully with the k3ii for a few months now. Even with the old firmware, autofocus works fine - it's the electronic aperture control that is not compatible.

This lens transitioned from "working perfectly taking pictures of birds" to "can't focus on anything in any way" more or less instantaneously, and I suspect that the focusing motor is broken.

looks like it needs to go back . Must admit its the first one I`ve heard of fail. Lets hope its not a trend.

Hope they sort it quickly for you.
