I’m in agreement with the contributors in this thread. I have both the 16-50 and the 50-135 and in both cases the SDM has failed in the past 12 months. Like others I’ve agonised whether to cut my losses and go for something different or get them repaired.

I obtained quotes from CR Kennedy the Aust agents and the repair cost cost appeared reasonable vs the alternative. So I am having the SDM motors replaced and in the process having the circuit boards replaced as well.

So here’s hoping. I have taken a lot of good work at weddings and other events  over the 9-10 years since the original purchases.

Besides I’m saving some money for for the purchase of a KP hopefully before Xmas.

Happy shooting to all......K
