Hitler's SDM fails...

Based on a true story... I had two of these lenses fail on me so I felt the need to vent with this haha

Totally hilarious!!

"Inspired by MANY true events". I know the feeling and it probably would last for another 70 years too. Two thumbs for the producer!

These are always good for a chuckle, though Adolph's information is a little off when it comes to the 645D.

That's priceless!....and I have the same feelings 50-135's SDM was replaced 9 months ago, and now it's started to squeak...thus it's starting to fail again, and Pentax only covers the replacement motor for 6 months....argh
