who did repair DA* 1650's SDM in Japan?

I asked China repair center, it's about USD400 to repair SDM of DA 1650, my friend will go to Japan next month, so anyone ever repaired this issue in Japan, and how much JPY I will pay for it ? tks.

I go to China once a year or so... Where in China are you located? I think you might be able to fix the lens in Japan for a little cheaper, might not be by much though. $400, you should get an used one...

My friend has the SDM of his 50-135 replaced about 3 over months ago through Pentax's agent in Singapore

He paid only US$230 and that included shipping charges to and fro Singapore - Japan :ugh:

You should spend lesser I presume

my location in Shenzhen and just can sent to Guangzhou that is other city nearby shenzhen. I called Pentax repair center in GZ this morning and told me it would spend about RMB2800( USD400). It's so expensive, so I decide to repair it in Japan. I want to know who ever repaired SDM in Tokyo Pentax, and how much, how long it will take, thanks.
