Then again, I've had mine well over ten years and SDM has always - and still does - work perfectly.

I'm aware that some people have had the SDM motor fail, but they are the only ones you ever hear from. Those of us who have not experienced any problems are an unknown number so there's no way of knowing what percentage of these lenses have failed and therefore how much of a gamble you take buying one.

You certainly hear about SDM failures a lot more than the silent motors of most other lenses so that would be enough for me not to use them.
