I wanted to start a thread for people who own DA* lenses with a poll so other users like myself can try and get an idea of the scope of the SDM problem.
If you're after SDM failure data, your poll is not properly worded- which is why I haven't voted. For example, I had an early production run DA*16-50, which was decentered. It was replaced under warranty, but it was NOT an SDM problem.

What I would really like to see is a poll on ownership length of those that have not had issues.

Well, the first lenses with SDM came out in 2007, so a maximum of four years is what I am thinking.
