Sucks. I do believe that you can convert it to screw drive.

You can, mine is converted after the 2nd failure. AF is actually a bit faster now than with the SDM

Supposedly Ricoh is revamping this lens with a new PLM motor. I'm waiting for it.

Ya, the rumour can out mid-March, lots of discussion, and now we wait.

Nothing to that effect on the DSLR Lens road map... but it's all good, it is up to date as at October 2021
