Defective 10-30mm (non PD) from MPB
1

I bought a 10-30mm (non PD) from MPB last week and it arrived this morning, but unfortunately, the aperture is stuck closed at f/16. I learned about this problem and the fragile gears inside the lenses. So, now I need to decide if see if they will send me a working copy without charging me more, or perhaps asking if they will knock down the price to their "faulty" level. The reason I'd do that is to open up another 10-30 I own which has the other problem these lenses get, a faulty ribbon cable. Between the two lenses, I should be able to make one good one. Plus I could buy another ribbon cable and gear to fix the second lens. Thoughts? Advice?
