Best place to have a 16-50mm repaired in the US.

My 16-50mm lens has developed a sqeak and has a focus hunt problem, much like what was described in another thread in the forum.

I was just wondering where the best place to have a 16-50mm lens repaired out of warranty in the US. I'm on the East Coast. Looks like a lot of poeple have good experiences with C.R.I.S.

If you ask Pentax, they will tell you to send it to CRIS. That's were mine is right now.

For my failing out-of-warranty DA* 50-135, I printed out a repair form off of Pentax's website, and sent it to CRIS. They got back to me with an estimate within a few days. The estimate to replace the SDM and AF mechanism was about $200 including return shipping, which I thought was a fair price. I should have it back in a couple of weeks.
